A worldview is a set of claims that purport to be based on ultimate reality.

Portugal 2 Mexico 1

Ricardo is all smiles after Simao's goal and Portugal are threatening to run riot with a number of close chances 

Portugal topped Group D after a narrow win as 10-man Mexico took second place.

The Portuguese took an early lead with a well-worked goal, Maniche sidefooting the ball into the roof of the net.

Maniche's goal was set up by Simao Sabrosa, who calmly converted the penalty for Portugal's second after Rafael Marquez's senseless handball.

Jose Fonseca's glancing header reduced Portugal's lead, but Omar Bravo blazed over a second-half penalty, before Mexico's Luis Perez was red-carded.

The win gave Portugal coach Luiz Felipe Scolari a World Cup record of 10 successive victories as a coach.
