Portugal beat Mexico to Confederations Cup third place

Portugal beat Mexico to Confederations Cup third place

European champions Portugal didn't need Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo to win the third-place play-off match against Mexico at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup as Adrien Silva converted a penalty in extra time to give his side a 2-1 win.

The teams played to a 2-2 draw in the group stage at the beginning of the tournament.

Portugal should have gone in front in the drizzling rain on 17 minutes when Andre Silva was upended by 38-year-old Rafael Marquez, with the video assistant referee stepping in to award the spot-kick.
