Russia 0-1 Portugal updates as Cristiano Ronaldo scores crucial winner 

Baku, June 21, AZERTAC 

It's all about Cristiano Ronaldo, who has been at the centre of a transfer storm all week after reportedly growing frustrated with a lack of recognition in the Spanish capital as well as the impending tax dispute with the authorities.

According the Mirror, attention now turns to international football though with Portugal stuttering in their Confederations Cup opener against Mexico - which finished 2-2 thanks to a late, late equaliser from Hector Moreno.

Ronaldo was slightly disjointed in that game, though his assist for Ricardo Quaresma was superb.

The hosts are already up and running with a 2-0 win over New Zealand and will hope to build on that against the European Champions.

Defeat for Portugal will put them up against the eight ball with El Tri facing New Zealand next and potentially able to move three points clear.
