Portugal v Chile Confederations Cup

Bayern Munich and Chile star Arturo Vidal has stirred up a war of words with Portugal talisman Cristiano Ronaldo before the pair meet in the Confederations Cup semi-finals on Wednesday, calling the Real Madrid man a "smartass".

But Vidal certainly isn't concerned about taking on the Real Madrid superstar and anticipates that Chile will meet Germany in the final. "We will have to win, otherwise I think our chances will be not so high to be in Russian Federation again next year", Broos said.

"But I think the New Zealand team should have scored a goal - they deserved one".

The 30-year-old Monaco player made his 100th global appearance with Portugal in the team's win over New Zealand on Saturday.

"And I'm sure it's going to be difficult.for Portugal as well". "We never stopped. We created chances, we put them under pressure, so we could have got a little more out of this tournament", he told reporters. Neither had won a major trophy until 2015 - but Chile now has two Copa Americas, while Portugal became European champion previous year.

Portugal, meanwhile, set up this semi-final clash with two wins against Russian Federation and New Zealand as well as a draw with Mexico in their group. "We are one of the best teams in Africa but there is still a difference between us and modern football".

But the Portugal captain made no mistake after Danilo was wrestled to the ground in the area by a combination of Tom Doyle and Tommy Smith following a corner.

Ronaldo is widely seen as being one of the greatest players of all time, and this weekend became European football's top worldwide scorer in competitive games (60 goals).

Portugal swiftly doubled their lead when Eliseu's unsafe low cross from the left was forced home by Silva, although there was brief concern for the new Manchester City signing as he landed awkwardly on his ankle.
