European champions Portugal finished third in the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup after beating Mexico 2-1 in their third place play-off match. After an agonising loss in the semifinals to Chile, Portugal were left to play the play-off match without Cristiano Ronaldo. The Real Madrid star was excused from the squad following Wednesday’s penalty shootout defeat to Chile in the semi-finals, returning home to meet his newborn twins. Both teams had earlier faced off in their opening match at the tournament, with the match ending in a 2-2 draw after a last-gasp equaliser by Mexico. Catch highlights of Portugal vs Mexico here.

The final of the tournament will be played between Germany and Chile later in the day.
