This Sunday, June 18, 2017 (8:00 AM Pacific) Portugal will play Mexico at the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia for a group stage match in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup. Both teams are in the contested Group A of the competition and should deliver an exciting affair.
Portugal qualified for the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup by winning the UEFA Euro 2016. The European side is in tremendous form heading into this encounter, winning four out of its last five games. In its last two games, Portugal has won both games and outscored its opponents 7-0. Portugal’s lone loss in this span was a 3-2 defeat against Sweden at home. Fernando Santos does count with a very talented squad with the attack being the focal point of the team. Players like Cristiano Ronaldo, Nani, Andre Silva and Bernardo Silva make Portugal a serious threat in this competition. The match should be a close encounter and a tough one for Portugal.
Mexico qualified to the 2017 edition of this competition by winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup qualification playoff. El Tri, like Portugal, is heading into this game in exceptional form that should make the game very entertaining. Mexico has only lost one game in its last five, its latest result was a 1-1 draw with the United States while its greatest victory was a 3-0 win against Honduras. Juan Carlos Osorio also has a plethora of talent on his squad with players like Diego Reyes, Marco Fabian, Andres Guardado, Carlos Vela and “Chicharito” Hernandez.
The North American side is a well-balanced unit and should be able to qualify to the next round of the tournament. Both teams will be looking for the three points after Russia came away with a win against New Zealand in the first game of the competition. The match should prove to be one of the best this weekend and one of the best in the group stage of the Confederations Cup.
