Cristiano Ronaldo: 'Portugal want to win Confederations Cup'

Cristiano Ronaldo wants Portugal to go on and win the Confederations Cup after reaching the semi-finals thanks to a 4-0 win over New Zealand in St. Petersburg.

Cristiano Ronaldo has urged Portugal to go all the way in the Confederations Cup after reaching the semi-finals of the competition.

The Euro 2016 champions recorded a straightforward 4-0 win over New Zealand in Saturday's Group A clash in St. Petersburg to progress to the final four.

Ronaldo, who opened the scoring against the 2016 OFC Nations Cup winners, told Sky Sports News: "We are very happy to be in the semi-finals.

"We played very well, we wanted to win and get the result in the first half, [but] it was hard to play better than we played because the grass [on the pitch] was not very good.

"We know that in the semi-finals both Chile and Germany are great teams, but we are confident and want to win."

Bernardo Silva, Andre Silva and Nani were the other scorers on the night for Portugal, who are playing for the first time in the competition.
