La fête du football en Russie — Coupe des Confédérations

Le Portugal vole vers la Russie

Cristiano Ronaldo, qui a inscrit le but de la victoire du Portugal contre la Russie en Coupe des Confédérations mercredi à Moscou (1-0), a estimé que son équipe avait été "meilleure" mais refusé de répondre à la moindre question alors que la star du Real Madrid est dans le collimateur du fisc.

Élu homme du match, Fyodor Smolov voyait enfin ses efforts récompensés quand il était à la réception d'un centre d'Alexander Samedov (69e), après une action qu'il avait lui-même initié depuis la ligne médiane. Il s'est toutefois contenté de cette sobre déclaration strictement sportive, puis s'est éclipsé sans répondre à la moindre question.

Mardi, il a été convoqué par la justice espagnole le 31 juillet en vue d'une mise en examen pour fraude fiscale. En guise de célébration, CR7 a en effet désigné du doigt d'abord sa poitrine, puis le sol, avant de faire des deux mains un geste signifiant généralement "on se calme".

Lors du match d'ouverture disputé samedi, la Russie a réussi son entrée en lice devant son public en dominant la Nouvelle-Zélande (2-0), comptant pour le groupe A.

Excellente opération sportive et de communication, donc, pour leur icône.

C'est l'inévitable Cristiano Ronaldo qui a offert la victoire aux siens d'une tête puissante à la réception d'un centre de Raphaël Guerreiro (8e).

Tenu en échec par le Mexique lors de son premier match de la Coupe des Confédérations, le Portugal a réagi. Les deux jeunes Silva, Bernardo et Andre, se retrouvent donc sur le banc. "Nous avons fait une première période exceptionnelle". Sauf que les Russes ont péché par un déficit de justesse dans les trente derniers mètres adverses et souffert de leur manque d'imagination pour déstabiliser l'imperméable bloc portugais. Seule la maladresse des Russes l'a prémuni d'une nouvelle désillusion. Et on va peut-être voir un joli match. Tous droits de reproduction et de représentation réservés.
