On the 21st minute there was a historic event in the history of football - the main referee Nestor Supply canceled goal Pepe, after consultation with videoassistance.

Ricardo Quaresma opened the scoring for Portugal in the 34th minute on a magical assist from Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo.

Mexico looked winded to have fallen behind after their early dominance and Quaresma nearly scored a second from a Ronaldo backheel, but Hernandez showcased his predatory instincts to head in Carlos Vela's cross to level.

However, the first match on the second day could be one of the best of the group stage as Portugal face Mexico.

Arturo Vidal and Eduardo Vargas fired Chile to a 2-0 win over Cameroon, but the game was once again dominated by the video assistant system which is being trialed at the Confederations Cup. "We nearly had the game won but we suffered in the final minutes".

Ronaldo has scored 11 goals in five games with Portugal this season. Javier Hernandez and Carlos Vela will be two Mexican players in focus.
