Mexico suffered a 4-1 defeat to Germany in the semifinal round on Thursday. It will only be a one day rest for Mexico for the third place game. The Mexicans were down 2-0 in the first eight minutes of the game. That was the score at halftime. The Germans then piled goals at the 59th minute and in injury time. The only goal for Mexico came from Hector Herrera in the 89th minute with Mexico down 3-0. The Mexicans did outshoot the Germans by a 25-12 margin. Ochoa was in net in the defeat. Mexico qualified for the semifinals as they drew 2-2 with Portugal. Then it was a 2-1 victory to New Zealand. They faced host nation Russia needing a victory to advance to the semifinals and came away with the 2-1 victory. In their draw in the opener with Portugal Mexico got the equalizer in injury time with a goal by Hector Moreno.

Portugal faced Chile in the semifinal round and it was 0-0 through two 45 minute halves and 30 minutes of extra time. It was a disappointing penalty round for Portugal as they get shut out 3-0 with misses by Ricardo Quaresma, Joao Moutino and Nani. There were questions why Ronaldo wasn’t used to begin the penalties. Chile was able to net their first three shots and it was enough to win the five round penalty kick phase. Cristiano Ronaldo will not be in the lineup for the Portuguese after the birth of his twins. Portugal qualified for the semifinals with a 2-2 draw with Mexico, winning 1-0 against Russia and 4-0 to New Zealand.
