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...
