Ronaldo played well and made the first goal but did not score.

Portugal's triumph at Euro 2016 secured them a place in Russian Federation, where they will be making their Confederations Cup debut against CONCACAF Gold Cup winners Mexico in Group A before facing the hosts and New Zealand.

KAZAN, Russia (AP) - Portugal is not anxious about Cristiano Ronaldo being distracted at the Confederations Cup by talk of his possible departure from Real Madrid. "It's good that we get to play it right now, in our first game".

Ronaldo was making the headlines on Friday, two days before Portugal's Confederations Cup debut in Russian Federation, because of a report that said he wants to leave Real Madrid and Spain following allegations that he defrauded the country's tax authorities.

It will be European champion Portugal, with Cristiano Ronaldo in top form, taking on Gold Cup victor Mexico in a game that is likely to decide the group victor.

The 32-year-old Real Madrid superstar's build-up to the tournament in Russian Federation has been overshadowed after he was this week accused by prosecutors in Spain of defrauding the authorities of 14.7 million euros ($16.5m) in tax through offshore companies.

A frantic end to the first half gave way to a boring second as both sides were found wanting with their final ball, with Ronaldo - isolated after Nani's withdrawal - unable to influence the game.

It has been a dream last 12 months on the field for the former Manchester United man, who was a European champion at club and worldwide level in 2016. "He is an idol, even for us players", admitted veteran defender Bruno Alves, the 35-year-old who has just signed for Scottish club Rangers.

Coach Fernando Santos and some of Ronaldo's teammates are confident the star forward won't be affected by the buzz created by a report that said he wants to leave the Spanish club because of allegations that he defrauded the country's tax authorities.

Mexico's squad has three players who have close connections to Portugal.

The Portuguese sports daily A Bola published a front-page story Friday saying that Ronaldo was upset with the accusations made against him and that his decision was "irreversible".

He skipped the post-match press conference which he was supposed to attend as the man of the match.

Ronaldo's backheel then saw Quaresma fire narrowly wide but another defensive error allowed Mexico to draw level three minutes before the break. "Of course it would be a dream to win it", Ronaldo said in January, since when he has powered Madrid to glory both in La Liga and in the Champions League.

"Ronaldo is motivated", young Portugal forward Andre Silva said Friday.

Portugal defender Pepe thought he had opened the scoring in the 21st minute when he turned in a cross-shot after Ronaldo had smashed a shot against the crossbar, having blasted his initial free kick into the defensive wall.

Y al 45', el delantero mexicano tuvo otra llegada para darle la vuelta al marcador antes del descanso pero la mandó arriba. Carlos Vela recibió una falta al borde del área y Andrés Guardado cobró el tiro libre sin fuerza ni colocación.

There were concerns that the match could be suspended after warnings from Federation Internationale de Football Association against homophobic chants by Mexican fans, but they were only heard a couple of times during the match and did not cause any disruption.
