It is a big summer ahead for Mexico, with El Tri following this month's World Cup qualifiers with a trip to Russian Federation to participate in the FIFA Confederations Cup before returning to their home region to play in next month's CONCACAF Gold Cup.
Mexico's second came in the 63rd minute when Hector Herrera played a ideal ball to Hirving Lozano over the top of the Honduras defense, which the Pachuca winger then collected and dribbled around Escober to finish into an empty net.
Their dominance played off when Oswaldo Alanis headed home a Jonathan Dos Santos corner kick.
Mexico defeated Honduras 3-0 at the Azteca with a heavily rotated side, showcasing a squad depth that no nation in CONCACAF can come close to matching. In the match against Trinidad and Tobago, the main character was a midfielder Dortmund "Borussia" Christian Politics, who scored two goals in the second half. In these matches, we managed to beat the USA, Costa Rica and Trinidad and Tobago, as well as draw a tie with Panama in the second round. Midway through the qualifying campaign, U.S. occupy the final qualifying berth, sitting just one point above fourth-placed Panama and there are no doubts they will be under pressure when facing leaders Mexico. The only real negative takeaway from Mexico is the injury to Carlos Salcedo which will rule him out of Mexico's match against the United States.
Substitute Hirving Lozano and forward Raul Jimenez got on the scoresheet to keep Mexico unbeaten and top of the group.
"These games are tough".
