Mexico beats El Salvador and rules in the tie

Mexico beats El Salvador and rules in the tie

El Salvador’s resistance lasted half an hour at the Cuscatlán stadium due to a header from Héctor Moreno and after 93 minutes Raúl Jiménez rounded off by hitting a penalty to give Mexico an incontestable victory by 0-2.

El Tri was confirmed with 14 points out of 18 possible at the top of the final octagonal of the Concacaf for the World Cup in Qatar 2022.

The defeat plummeted the Salvadoran team to the penultimate place in the league with 5 points, the same ones that Jamaica added today to get out of the pit and reach the sixth seat.

After the break, just three minutes before the resumption of the game, things became even more complicated for the locals due to the direct red that defender Mario Jacobo saw for a violent foul on Rogelio Funes Mori, Argentine striker nationalized in Mexico.

The numerical balance on the court returned in the 67th minute when Celta de Vigo defender Néstor Araújo saw the second yellow card.

The goal in the first half was all that the pupils of Argentine coach Gerardo Martino needed to play calmly on a court that has been hostile to them in recent times, as well as to dose forces and shore up their first place in the standings, to three points from the United States.

What neither Salvadorans nor Mexicans expected was a greater distance with the penalty executed by Jiménez at the last gasp. EFE (HN)
