How to watch Portugal vs. Chile

The Copa America holder was surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Australia in its final Group B game, a result that allowed Germany to claim top spot in the group with a 3-1 win over Cameroon.

Chile had a penalty shout in the second half of extra time, when substitute Francisco Silva appeared to have his foot stepped on after touching the ball away in the box.

The Real Madrid forward has once again starred for his national side in the Confederations Cup, and will be spearheading the Euro 2016 champions attack once again tomorrow night.

Pizzi added: "We build a game based on the players on the pitch".

"He has had an incredible season in Spain, he's playing here with the same strength, which is why Portugal are in the semi-final. He's young as well and I think he's got a really bright future ahead of him", said Mustafi.

After helping steer Portugal to the Euro 2016 title in Paris a year ago, Ronaldo is aiming to win a second global title when the Confederations Cup final concludes on Sunday in Saint Petersburg.

This win has ensured India a quarter-final berth in the tournament though they still have to play against Netherlands on Tuesday. The lone goal for Pakistan came through Umar Bhutta three minutes from the hooter when the contest was already lost.

Today's semifinal in Kazan brings together two teams playing better than ever. Chile have quality players, are very dynamic and are very aggressive and combative. "Yes, we want to be in the final", he said.

"Portugal are clear contenders for the title", he said.

"I always trust my team. I am thankful for Cristiano Ronaldo, and he deserves all my respect". "And I'm sure it's going to be hard for Portugal as well".

Mexico might at least be a little apprehensive over facing Julian Draxler, who has responded to taking on the captaincy of an experimental Germany squad in Russian Federation by turning in a string of dazzling displays.

Portugal will be without Raphael Guerreiro and Pepe due to an injury and suspension respectively and Eliseu is also a doubt after he did not train. It will also host the final of the current tournament next Sunday.

In the other semi-final match of the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, reigning world champions Germany will take on team Mexico on Thursday at the Fisht Stadium in Russia's southern resort city of Sochi.
