Copa America champions Chile will try to curb Portugal's superstar Cristiano Ronaldo in tomorrow morning's (Singapore time) Confederations Cup semi-final, with the star forward in rich form despite the tax storm brewing in Spain.

The Euro 2016 champions took the lead on 33 minutes through a penalty from their captain, his 75th worldwide goal, before Manchester City-bound midfielder Bernardo Silva knocked in a second from close-range only to pick up an ankle injury which saw him substituted at the break.

Fernando Santos's side stood up well to some concerted pressure from the All Whites after the break, with Andre Silva and Nani's first goals of Russian Federation 2017, the latter coming in stoppage time, serving to rubberstamp all three points.

It was a typically efficient performance from Portugal who never looked in real danger despite a sluggish start.

Central defender Pepe would be sidelined after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament.

The man is expected to appear in Southport Local Court on Tuesday, where police will apply for him to be extradited to NSW. Becker is due to face Tweed Heads Local Court on Wednesday on one count of murder, NSW Police said in a statement.

The veteran forward has always worked well as Ronaldo's partner up front, helping create scoring opportunities and being precise with his finishing in front of the goal. He's playing here with the same strength, which is why Portugal are in the semi-finals.

Even so, coach Anthony Hudson was proud of his side, who refused to shut up shop in the second half.

"He's been a very good leader", said Can.

"We have to be better and more consistent, stronger in both ways".

But it suddenly escalated with the officers saying "get back" repeatedly. "They could have taken her down". Anderson said he told McNew he didn't have a Taser. "They could have used other (less lethal) force".

The Copa America holders were surprisingly held to a 1-1 draw by Australia in their final Group B game, a result that allowed Germany to claim top spot in the group with a 3-1 win over Cameroon.

Coach Juan Antonio Pizzi suggested the demand for Sanchez is a boost to his self-esteem, saying: "We suppose he is very happy because he is going through a very special situation and I think everybody would like to be in this situation because the best clubs in the world want to have him in their squads".

Bernardo Silva turned Eliseu's low cross into the net four minutes later, although he suffered a knock on the ankle in the process.

The meetings between these two teams has been far and few.
