Herrera's free kick is whipped in, but Carvalho is first to it and scrambles it behind for a corner on the left.

Gomes hacks Jonathan Dos Santos on the right hand side of the Mexico box. The pressure is off.

75' 

Fifteen minutes for these sides to find a winner, but they look too jaded at this point. A goal from a mistake looks the likeliest breakthrough.

Nothing is happening at all now. The players look knackered.

50' 

Salcedo twists his ankle in the turf as Ronaldo's cross wallops against him. After a bit of wincing, he's OK to get back up.

49' 

Guadardo swings in a free kick, and while the arc is tempting, it's just a touch too hard and high to be any use.

48'

Mexico win a throw-in high up on the left wing.

There's another ex-United player on the pitch today as well as Nani and Ronaldo, because there's Javier Hernandez up front too. There have been rumours that he may make a return to the Premier League.

15:35 

Ronaldo starts up front for Portugal, with Ricardo Quaresma and Luis Nani alongside him. It's a generally strong Portugal side for what is essentially a glorified run of friendlies, but they all count.

And here is the greatest living Frenchman to talk about Ronaldo.

Not for the first time, Ronaldo is the man that everyone is talking about, and here is why: He could be on his way to PSG for an enormous sum of money.
