Cédric netted on 86th minutes to give Portugal a late lead in their Confederations Cup opener, but Héctor Moreno's injury-time strike earned Mexico a draw.

Portugal initially took the lead on 35 minutes when Cristiano Ronaldo crossed for Ricardo Quaresma, who dummied Guillermo Ochoa before finishing cooly.

Mexico responded and pulled level just seven minutes later when Javier Hernández headed in just before the break.

Cédric then appeared to have won it for Portugal when his deflected effort flew in on 86 minutes, however Moreno equalised to earn a draw in the dying minutes of the tie.
