Portugal on Monday trained at the Kazan FC Rubin training ground preparing to take on Russia in their next Confederations Cup match.

Mexico claimed a 2-2 draw with Portugal on Sunday with a last-gasp equaliser by Hector Moreno after Cedric seemed to have won the game for the European champions with a goal five minutes from time.

The result leaves both sides tied for second place in Group A, behind hosts Russia who top the group after beating New Zealand 2-0 on Saturday in St. Petersburg.

Portugal captain Cristiano Ronaldo did not join his team on the pitch on Monday as he and some other players were allowed a break after Sunday’s match.

Russia play Portugal and Mexico take on New Zealand on Wednesday.
