Silva completes comeback as Portugal seal third spot

Portugal coach Fernando Santos gives Bernardo Silva ankle injury update

Portugal and Mexico meet in the third-place match at the 2017 Confederations Cup in Russian Federation on Sunday. Luis Neto bundled into his own net to hand Mexico a 54th-minute lead, but Pepe stabbed home a stoppage-time equaliser to force an extra 30 minutes at Spartak Stadium.

But Mexico were also reduced to ten men six minutes later as Raul Jimenez picked up a second booking.

The European champions Portugal placed third on their Confed Cup debut although World Footballer Cristiano Ronaldo was already at home to see his newborn twins.




The final match between German and Chilean national teams will be held later on Sunday in St. Petersburg. But despite the big score played the national team of Mexico, it was bright with fire and by and large in no way inferior to formidable opponents, well, the defeat certainly did not deserve.

Portugal fell in a penalty shootout after a 0-0 draw, and will be without its star player for the third-place match.

Adrien Silva then scored from the spot in 14th minute of extra time to put his side in the driving seat and on the way to glory.
