Mexico defeated Russia 2-1 in Kazan, to book their place in the 2017 FIFA Confederations semifinals, by virtue of finishing second in Group A. Russia needed to beat Mexico in today’s match to avoid their prospects hinging on a Portugal loss, while a point would have been enough for the Mexicans to advance. However, with Portugal cruising to a comfortable 4-0 win over New Zealand, Russia’s failure to win the game sealed their fate. Catch highlights of Mexico vs Russia here.
