Mexico News and Form

It was three wins from three for El Tri in the group stage. They scored a total of 13 goals in those fixtures as well, conceding three against them. Mexico took their successes over Cuba, Canada and Martinique. So that was some good early momentum that they had to carry forward to the next round, but things started to become a little more stressful for them. In the quarterfinals, they could only manage a 1-1 draw with Costa Rica and had to rely on a penalty shootout to get through.

Mexico 1 Goal Winning Margin

They locked in the group win with a 1-0 success over Panama in their final group stage game. The defence of the USA kept up its standards in the quarter-finals with a 1-0 win over Curacao. That left them going head to head with Jamaica in the semis a rematch of the last Gold Cup Final.
