PEEP! PEEP! PEEP! PEEEEEEP!

THAT WAS AN ABSOLUTE BELTER OF A GAME AS BOTH TEAMS TRADED BLOWS TOE-TO-TOE!

This is a superb exhibition for international football, and what a way to win 3rd place in the FIFA Confederations Cup. 

Congratulations to Portugal, commiserations to the fighting Mexico... this is Anirudh Menon signing out

Toodle-ooo!
...
TWO MINUTES ADDED ON
...
....PEPE CLEARS WELL WITH AN ABSOLUTE MONSTER OF A HEADER! AND THEN PORTUGAL WIN A FREEKICK IN THEIR OWN BOX
...
120' FREEKICK MEXICO AND OCHOA SPRINTS FORWARD!....
...
119' Osario gets sent off for giving an absolute earful (quite literally) to the fourth referee for not going up To Var
...
118' Mexico ping the ball around faster and Lozano swings one in and Moreno puts it wide for five yards! THE MEXICANS DEMAND VAR FOR THE PRESSURE PEPE PUT ON MORENO, BUT IT'S A DECENT CALL FROM THE REF!
...
117' OH MY!!!! HERRERA SMACKS IT LOW AND HARD BUT THE EXCELLENT RUI PATRICIO GETS A SUPERB SAVE IN! THAT IS BRILLIANT ALL ROUND... Portugal somehow scramble it clear!
...
115' Eliseu flies into Jon Do Santos - but the flag gone up for offside already, and that's a freekick for Portugal
...
113' Layun tries to play in Lozano in between Neto and Eliseu, but Rui Patricio is alive to the danger and comes out to collect it safely
...
112' Must say, the ref's been excellent - and he's used VAR the way it was designed to be used. 
...
111' RED CARD JIMENEZ! IT'S TEN A-SIDE NOW! The striker goes in Eric-Cantona-at-Selhurst-Park style on his good mate Eliseu and that's a straightforward yellow. Being his second, that's that for Raul Jimenez 
...
110' The Mexican support are trying to whip their team into some sort of last gasp action (including that guy who popped out for a cigarette in Mexico City I assume)... but it's Quaresma who's doing the running. He runs at Reyes, cuts inm and smashes a shot straight off Arauju onto the roof of the net (on the outside)
...
109' Quaresma's corner isn't too pretty and Mexico come forward - Lozano licking his lips at the prospect of running at Martins - but the winger turned fullback does well to hold his ground and Mexico rebuild from the back. 
...
108' Andre Silva and Araujo go sliding after a Quaresma through ball and the Portuguese youngster does well to win the corner. 
...
106' OH MY LORD! THAT'S SOME WAY TO START THE HALF! NELSON SEMEDO HAS GOT HIS SECOND YELLOW FOR A HIGH BOOT ON LOZANO AND YELLOW + YELLOW = RED
...
PEEP! We're off again... 

Rafa Marquez is taken off for Fabian.
...
PEEP! PEEP! HALFTIME IN EXTRATIME
...
105' Mexico win a freekick in a dangerous-ish position but Herrera's underwhelming delivery is headed well clear by the goalscorer Adrien Silva. Quaresma goes on rampaging counter and let's fly - but Ochoa does well to save it with his ;egs
...
That was his first goal for the senior team and what a time to get it at, he coolly sent Ochoa the other way and placed into the far corner. Great penalty, Finally.
...
104' GOOOOOOOOOAL!!! ADRIEN SILVA!!! SOMEONE FINALLY CONVERTS A PENALTY FOR PORTUGAL!
...
Quaresma swung one in with venom and Martins controlled int superly. He tried to jink it over Layun - whose arms got in the way of it going over him - and well, that's as clear as a penalty as you will see
...
102' PENALTY!!!!!!!
...
100' OOO IT'S GETTING FEISTY!!! A couple of loose tackles from Adrien Silva and dos Santos set things off but the Persian referee gets it all smoothly under control right pronto.
...
99' OH MY LORD! ELISEU ABSOLUTELY LARRUMPS IT AT GOAL, BUT IT FLIES JUST WIDE OFF THE FAR POST!
...
98' Yellow for Hector Moreno as he bullies over Andre Silva - fairly dangerous position, Cristiano Ronaldo territory, but with the big man not in attendance, it will be Elisue who steps up...
...
97' Jiminez steals the ball at the edge of the box, but ends up delaying his shot for far too long and Neto gets his tackle in. 
...
96' Jimenez slips in Lozano with a delectable turn and assist off the outside of his boot and the youngster races in behind Semedo before playing a ball that's just got too much for Vela at the far post
...
95' Jimenez picks up a booking for a rash foul as Portugal sought to move out of their own area following the Patricio smother but Portugal can't make much headway 
...
94' OOOOO FROM THE CORNER RUI PATRICIO SAVES PORTUGAL AGAIN AS HE SMUGGLES A LOZANO ATTEMPT.... 
...
93' Lozano skims past Semedo with absurd ease before playing the ball into the box. In it, Vela can't get a clean connection but he lays it off to Jimenez... and the striker's smack is blocked.
...
91' William tries to pick out one of Andre Silva and Quaresma but ends up picking up Rafa Marquez... 
...
PEEEP! PEEP! WE'RE OFF AGAIN!
...
Further Subs, as Pizzi is taken off for William Carvalho
...
PEEP! PEEP! ONTO THIRTY MINUTES ET WE GO
...
94' Carlos Vela is harshly pulled up for a foul on Eliseu and everyone settles down to the inevitable thirty added minutes
...
93' HOW INFURIATING IS QUARESMA! Andre Silva rampages down the left before passing it onto Quaresma who gives the ball away with an insouciant flick of his right boot... from the sublime to the rubbish in under 60 seconds
...
QUARESMA FINALLY SENDS ONE IN PAST THE FIRST MAN... AND PEPE KUNG FU KICKS IT INTO THE NET IN INIMITABLE PEPE STYLE! PORTUGAL ARE LEVEL!
...
91' GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL! PEPE!
...
90' FOUR MINUTES TO BE ADDED ON!
...
89' Andre Gomes gives the ball away - a statement many Barcelona fans would have read over and over again last season - and Mexico counter at pace but an excellent Neto tackle means Jimenez doesn't break free
...
88' Reyes pings Lozano in behind goal, but the striker has ben adjudged to have wandered offside
...
85' SUB as Chicharito is taken off for Raul Jimenez... iMartins meanwhile goes down the left and swings one in that is cleared hastily... Quaresma tries from the right, but it doesn't get past the first man
...
84' OUFFF! VELA HAS LOOKED LIVELY TODAY AND HE CUTS IN TO SHOOT STRAIGHT AT OCHOA!
...
83' Quaresma tries a rabona cross, falls on his backside and Mexico counter.... Hernandez is slipped in behind the defence, but Rui Patricio's charge sees off the danger. 
...
82' Adrien Silva and Andre Gomes are thrown on for Moutinho and Danilo... Portugal maintain pressure on the right..
...
81' Pepe move powerfully forward before picking up Quaresma on the left, and he tries to play in Elisue, but Nestor Araujo is first to it and smashes it clear
...
79' Multiple subs as Guadrado is taken off for Jonathan dos Santos, while for Portugal... oh, they've held back their subs for the moment. 
...
78'  It's all a bit scrappy as both sides struggle to retain control of the ball... as Quaresma illustrates with a wild hoick that flies high above the waiting Andre Silva in the box
...
76' Mexico are looking far more comfortable on the ball than their opponents ... Portugal try to force the issue down theright wing but Quaresma's wild effort from the edge of the box flies well wide of the goalpost. 
...
75' Vela tries to run at Eliseu, but after the ball ricochets amongst them like a pinball, it's a throw in for Portugal.
