The Portugal vs. Mexico match will be played on Sunday, June 18, at the Kazan Arena, Kazan. This is the first round match of the Confederations Cup Group A, which consists of Portugal, Mexico, New Zealand and the hosts Russia.

STATS

  • Portugal won seven and lost only two games after they won the historic title at EURO 2016 in France. They are currently in a series of two victories, with seven goals scored and none conceded! However, Portugal is currently second in their World Cup Qualifying group, with three points less than the leaders Switzerland.
  • Mexico lost only one out of their last 13 games. They are currently leading in the final CONCACAF qualifying stage, with six points in front of Costa Rica and the USA. With only four games to go, Mexico almost secured the place on the World Cup.

HEAD TO HEAD

These national teams met three times so far, and Portugal recorded two victories, while one match ended in a draw. Portugal won both games that were played in the 21st century.

PORTUGAL NEWS

Portugal is currently eight points in front of Hungary in the World Cup Qualification Europe Group B, with four games to go. Therefore, they practically secured the position number two, but they want to qualify for the World Cup directly, which means they will probably have to defeat Switzerland at home in the last qualifying game. The Confederation Cup will be a good preparation for that.
