International Friendlies: Mexico routed Chile in an international friendly played in Barcelona on Sunday night.
Andres Guardado, who scored important goals in 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup, got the only goal of the game in the second half.
Mexico took control through most of the match as they created early chances of scoring but unfortunately they failed to capitalize any opportunity.
FC Barcelona’s forward Alexis Sanchez and Pablo Barrera entered the match just before halftime, while Guardado and Hernandez came into the ground within 15 minutes of the restart, and Isla also came in on 67 minutes.
Guardado’s winner finally came in the 79th minutes when he curled a left-footed free kick from the top corner of the penalty area past opponent goalkeeper Miguel Pinto. The 26-years-old registered his 13th international goal over 75 appearances.
Just after six minutes, Chile had a best chance to equalize the game when Jean Beausejour sent a shot pinging off both the post and the crossbar but they missed the opportunity.
Edgar Dueñas received the lone yellow card of game in early second half.
After winning this game, Mexico’s unbeaten streak under de la Torre stretched to 14 games. They have drawn a match against Poland on Friday.
