All Whites coach Anthony Hudson has no problems with New Zealand being written off before they even take the field against Portugal in their final Confederations Cup pool match.

The European Champions are expected to cruise past New Zealand tonight with a dominating performance and we may very well see the biggest scoreline of the tournament in St.Petersburg.

Hosts Russia took a deserved 25th-minute lead through Aleksandr Samedov, but Nestor Araujo equalised for Mexico with a looping header on the half hour. "We're not looking up to the opposition, we could be playing whoever".

"I don't know if I am going to play with Ronaldo or not", said Santos.

In Portugal's first game against Mexico, their back line was exposed as slow to react on crosses.

After demolishing New Zealand, Portugal progressed as Group A winners and will face the runners-up in Group B - likely Germany or Chile - next Wednesday in Kazan for a place in the July 2 final.

"We have decided what we want to do and we will continue with our posture, our position, objective game by game, but always trusting that we will win". "I'm glad that also happens in New Zealand".

"I think he's the best in the world", Hudson said.

"We need to control the game and show to ourselves that we can compete under such hard circumstances, take a step forward and keep growing as a team so we are capable of playing against any team and any style". However, we often see players spending two or three minutes arguing with the referee which is more than enough for the umpire to watch a repeat.

The ambivalence towards the tournament could grow should Russian Federation be eliminated during the group stages, yet Mexico boss Juan Carlos Osorio does not fear dubious decisions going the hosts' way to give them a helping hand towards qualification.

"We will play a hard opponent whoever that will be, Chile or Germany, two great teams". We do not think that we will play only against Ronaldo.

However, it created chances to score, and captain Chris Wood was denied only by defender Bruno Alves blocking a low shot at the far post in the 59th.

They managed to beat New Zealand on the opening matchday, though a subsequent defeat to Portugal has left them on the ropes.

"We need to control the game and we need to show to ourselves that we can compete under such hard circumstances and hopefully we will make a step forward". "A good match awaits us", he concluded.
