The Confederations Cup already kicked off last Saturday, June 17, in Russian Federation and will go on until July with the matches being held in different venues, such as Saint Petersburg, Kazan, Moscow, and Sochi.
The homophobic abuse was heard during Mexico's opening game against Portugal in Kazan on Sunday despite Federation Internationale de Football Association warning on the eve of the World Cup warm-up tournament that there would be tighter monitoring of offensive incidents in stadiums.
He scored his 20th global goal - and New Zealand's first for 334 minutes of combined game time - when latching onto a deflected through ball from Clayton Lewis.
This will be the third Confederations Cup match between two UEFA countries, after France's 3-2 victory against Turkey in the 2003 semi-final and the goalless draw between Spain and Italy in the 2013 semifinal (Spain won 7-6 on penalties).
"If I was a big team in world football and we were taken right to the edge by a smaller team like New Zealand there's a certain amount of discomfort there and big pressure". Portugal had a first-half goal by Nani disallowed after a video review, when the game was still scoreless.

Ronaldo made a great run from near midfield to set up Quaresma's 34th-minute goal.
And he was all smiles escorting a young mascot in a wheelchair out onto the pitch before he netted his first goal of the tournament inside eight minutes at the home of Spartak Moscow.
Reflecting on Saturday's display, and his new status, he added: "I do not feel like a hero, we have not done anything yet, this was just the first match".
Ronaldo carried the ball into the area but was surrounded by three defenders and he passed it to Quaresma, who was free from markers on the far side of the box.
The Brazilian president also said he was confident that the forthcoming 2018 FIFA World Cup will be "a real celebration for fans" and wished the national teams of Russian Federation and Brazil to meet in the final of the tournament.
