All Whites skipper Chris Wood wants his side to finish the Confederations Cup on a positive note.
"As you know, Federation Internationale de Football Association is very serious about the chanting that we do when the goalkeeper takes a kick, and the possible sanctions are serious", FMF said in a statement directed at the team's supporters.
However, it is mostly how his team performed in the second of those two games which meant the Kiwi captain didn't hesitate when asked what they hoped to get out of their clash with Portugal. "We've changed quite a bit in terms of our line-up, our game, our attitude and the fans see that".
Both Russia and Mexico have high aspirations for their national soccer club, but on Saturday one team will face an early exit from Confederations Cup.

"We faced a rival that needed to win and had nothing to lose, and we competed very well against them", Mexico coach Juan Carlos Osorio said.
In a freaky scenario in Wednesday's clash, Osorio was involved in a heated argument with one of New Zealand's assistant coaches after Salcedo went down with an injury in the first half.
"I think he's the best in the world", Hudson said. So I lost my temper.
"We can't play a game of this magnitude being afraid of losing", Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado said. Someone to keep them company, KUKON hosts or guests from far away Mexico? The team played very well against a side playing at home with the support of their fans.
