Mexico will look to continue the momentum they gained with their 91st-minute equalizer against Portugal when they take on the upstart All Whites of New Zealand in a 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Group A match that will live stream from Sochi, Russia, on Wednesday. The Kiwi side, on the other hand, are hoping mainly to gain a measure of respectability as they look for their first-ever victory in a Confederations Cup match after nine losses and a draw over four separate tournaments.
The most recent loss for New Zealand came against tournament host Russia on Saturday when they fell 2-0. The game will mark the seventh-ever meeting between New Zealand and Mexico, with El Tri winning all five of the confrontations since the start of 2010 and New Zealand earning their lone victory in the initial meeting between the sides — 37 years ago, in 1980.
Not only have New Zealand lost nine of their 10 Confederations Cup matches to date, the All Whites have not scored a goal in their most recent five games in the tournament.
