2017 FIFA Confed. Cup: Portugal win 1st match, lead Group A

Moscow, Russia (PANA) - A clinical Christian Ronaldo header in the 8th minute, off a Raphaël Guerreiro cross, was all that Portugal needed to pip hosts Russia 1-0 in a Day 2, Group A match at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup.

The win lifted Portugal to top of the group on 4 points - 3 points from the win and 1 point from their 2-2 draw with Mexico in the opening group match on Sunday  

The Russians, winners of their opening match 2-0 against New Zealand, are second on the table with 3 points.

Mexico have 1 point and New Zealand yet to record a point, as the two teams meet later Wednesday in the other Group A, Day 2 match.
