Mexico clinch a 2-1 victory over Nigeria in a friendly match on Saturday night as El Tri launched a stretch of summer matches in preparation for the 2022 World Cup.
In front of 45,000 fans at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, Mexico took an early lead when Cruz Azul’s Santiago Gimenez found the back of the net in the 12th minute.
Through an assist from Monterrey’s Jesus Gallardo, Gimenez’s shot pinballed between himself and goalkeeper Francis Uzoho before crossing the goal line.
The Super Eagles leveled the scoreline in the 54th minute through their first opportunity on target.
Following a well-placed cross from Calvin Bassey, Cyriel Dessers forced an error from Mexican goalkeeper Rodolfo Cota, who fumbled the ball into his net.
Moments afterwards, Mexico would take the lead once again after their opposition made a mistake of their own.
After a hard pass from Gallardo on the left flank, defender William Troost-Ekong accidentally launched the ball past his goalkeeper through a poor clearance.
