Ryan Thomas tries to evade a couple of Portuguese defenders

Bernardo Silva doubled the score four minutes later after clever work by Ricardo Quaresma out wide put Eliseu into space.

Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernando Silva, Andre Silva and Nani all got on the scoresheet as the Euro 2016 winners finished top of Group A ahead of Mexico, who claimed the runners-up spot after registering a 2-1 triumph over hosts Russian Federation.

Mexico's Lozano's sealed the match with a stylish goal.

All White coach Anthony Hudson was pleased with the way his team had worked, and said there were plenty of positive to take from the game. "They are two world powers and our objective is to reach the final and win, with total modesty and humility and showing respect as we have done until now".

"We want to win this tournament, against whoever", the 29-year-old said.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that Ronaldo emerged man of the match played at Saint Petersburg Stadium, St Petersburg (RUS) on Saturday.

Claims that the Russian Federation team at the 2014 World Cup were part of doping scandal have been roundly dismissed by Russian Federation 2018 CEO Alexey Sorokin.

Portugal topped Group A and joined the Mexicans after beating last-place New Zealand in St. Petersburg.

Gerrymandering benefited GOP in 2016
But Republicans have a 7-4 majority in the state's congressional delegation and now control the state House 66-34. One of the largest Democratic congressional advantages was in Maryland, where Democrats controlled redistricting.

The Oceania champions were far from disgraced but have now competed in the tournament four times without winning a game and have an overall record of 11 defeats and a draw in 12 matches. "We know we've played some really good football at times".

In the other Group A clash, Mexico denied hosts Russian Federation progress into the last four as they grinded out a 2-1 victory.

"Maybe you saw the reply, but as the game progressed, I indicated to the referee I thought it should have been replayed".

Bernardo has certainly had a stop-start introduction to senior global life but this, his second goal in his 14th cap, was a significant moment and his presence coming off the flank lends Portugal more fluidity between the lines.

Akinfeev made a mistake that led to Mexico's second goal after a long clearance by Herrera from near the south American side's area.

While Chile and Germany are now top of Group B, Australia or Cameroon could yet progress to the knockout stage with an unexpected victory on Sunday.

Some talented youngsters have also been important for Portugal recently, giving hope that the team can continue to succeed even after the most experienced players begin being replaced in the not-so-distant future.
