Arturo Vidal in extraordinary blast at 'smart a**' Cristiano Ronaldo

Arturo Vidal in extraordinary blast at 'smart a**' Cristiano Ronaldoā€¯

Germany are expected to ease past a hit-and-miss Mexico side in their own semi-final, although Juan Carlos Osorio's side are yet to lose thus far in the competition after coming from behind to earn wins against Russian Federation and Mexico, also striking late to earn a point against Ronaldo's Portugal.

The pair don't appear to have any past history, although the Real Madrid striker did bring an end to Bayern Munich's UEFA Champions League chances earlier this term.

Their opening match at these finals was preceded by a moment's silence after over 60 people were killed in the blazes in the Pedrogao Grande region.

The team finished second in Group A on seven points, behind Portugal on goal difference.

Chile and Germany have booked their tickets for the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup in Russian Federation.

"Mexico is going to be a tough game, they are a very flexible team with very good players", said Loew, who became the first head coach to achieve 100 worldwide wins, following the Germans' 3-1 victory over Cameroon on Sunday. The Real Madrid forward has now scored 16 times in his last 10 games for club and country.

Portugal have been quite awesome so far in the tournament having scored seven goals thus far with their poster boy Cristiano Ronaldo having scored twice.

Back-to-back Copa America winners Chile face European conquerors Portugal in Kazan on Thursday in what promises to be a fairly even contest. "For me he does not exist", he said.

"Cristiano is a smart ass", he said to reporters in Russian Federation, per Luke Augustus of the MailOnline.

Despite a bright start, Anthony Hudson's side then conceded again within five minutes, with new Manchester City man Bernardo Silva converting Eliseu's cross after the left-back's purposeful run.

Bayern Munich midfielder Renato Sanches, 19, didn't make it to the Confederations Cup squad but is also expected to be part of Portugal's future.
