Host Russia exits Confederations Cup after loss to Mexico

Confederations Cup Mexico Appeal to Fans to Stop Homophobic Chants

Club or country, it does not matter to Cristiano Ronaldo as he continued his remarkable scoring run at the Confederations Cup.

While the hosts bow out, Mexico progress as Group A runners-up to play the winners of Group B in Sochi next Thursday. "We are building a team that is showing that it can play against any opponent in any situation".

Moreno then side-footed past Akinfeev but VAR saw his goal disallowed and Russian Federation were reduced to 10 men when Zhirkov caught Miguel Layun with a flailing arm and was shown a second yellow card.

"We know we've played some really good football at times. You have to try to reach the goal and prevent them from scoring".

"We are very happy to be in the semi-finals", he said. "My team did the best they could". The group is jam-packed at the top, with nobody confirmed on to the next round and only New Zealand eliminated.

Mexico completed their comeback shortly after half-time when Herrera launched a long ball forward from his own third.

Some of the proof used against him was purported security footage of him removing a political banner from his hotel. Mr Warmbier's treatment was "appalling", US Senator Rob Portman of OH told reporters outside the memorial.

Meanwhile, Russia crashed out of the competition after failing to secure a victory in their final group game against Mexico.

Mexico captain Andres Guardado picked up an early booking that will rule him out of the semi-final, while the video assistant referee was summoned to reject Russian penalty claims after Fyodor Smolov went to ground in the area.

The lead was short-lived, however, with Mexico swiftly equalising through a Nestor Araujo header, the centre-back directing a header past Russia's goalkeeper Akinfeev, although he did not seem to be going for goal.

The hosts had a goal by Samedov disallowed for offside just a few minutes into the second half.

The linesman's flag denied Spartak Moscow's Samedow after he put the ball in the net early in the second half, and Mexico forged ahead as Lozano's fearless gamble paid off. After striker Fedor Smolov struck the post with a long-range shot and Zhirkov had his shot saved by Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, Russia kept possession and sent the ball back into the area, where Aleksandr Erokhin missed a chance before Samedov picked up his pass and sent a precise low shot into the far corner.

Mexico went ahead seven minutes after the break, Akinfeev making a calamitous decision to come for a long ball and missing it, allowing Lozano a simple finish.
