Portugal cruised into the semi-finals of the Confederations Cup as Group A winners after Cristiano Ronaldo, Bernardo Silva, Andre Silva and Nani secured a 4-0 victory over New Zealand on Saturday.
"Even if you take Ronaldo out of the team, you still have world-class players like Ricardo Quaresma and Nani, we have a game plan and we won't be over-awed", said Kiwi coach Anthony Hudson. "We started from the ground up and we are trying to take steps to reach higher goals".
However, it was not all good news as Bernardo Silva went off injured at halftime while a needless and reckless challenge from Pepe ruled the controversial central defender out of Wednesday's semi-final. "That's very important. In all games we go on to the pitch to win, we have that confidence in ourselves".
Ronaldo was the one to break the deadlock, dispatching an emphatic penalty beyond Stefan Marinovic to score on the 30th birthday of nemesis Lionel Messi. New Zealand finished bottom of the group after losing all three games.
"We'll try to counter their strengths and exploit their weaknesses, but we need to be focused". "We will be at a disadvantage if we enter the game with this mentality".

"FIFA know about this and I hope that in a week's time it will be better". "Not only here, but also at home in World Cup qualifiers we will be playing in the future".
