The Mexicans quickly took control of the ball and pushed the Salvadorans out, who had the support of thousands of fans who they packed the Cuscatlán stadium in San Salvador.

Despite their dominance, it took the Mexican squad 12 minutes to generate their first clear goal option with a header from Osvaldo Rodríguez after a corner kick.

This same formula allowed visitors to mark the 0-1 at 30 minutes through Héctor Moreno, who headed without a mark at a time when Salvadorans were trying to create danger.

The aspirations of the Salvadoran Selecta, who did not make a single shot on goal, to equalize the score were diminished after the expulsion of debutant Mario Jacobo, for a direct red at 48.

Those led by Hugo Pérez managed to increase their possession of the ball after the expulsion of Aztec defender Néstor Araujo for double yellow, but the Mexican defense fought its bow without major worries.

At the end of the game, Raúl Jiménez stole a ball from the right wing and dragged the defense into the area, where he was knocked down and the referee whistled a penalty kick.

The same Jiménez put the 0-2, without the rescuers having time to try to discount on the scoreboard.
