Mexico 1-0 El Salvador: Rodriguez fires El Tri into quarter-finals

Mexico have secured top spot in Group A with a hard-fought 1-0 win over El Salvador in their final Gold Cup group game in Dallas on Sunday.

Luis Rodriguez netted the winner in the 26th minute to secure a quarter-final match-up against the Group D runner-up, either Honduras, Qatar or Panama.


The Gold Cup holders won the key statistics, with 16-11 shots and 54-46 per cent possession, but were made to work for the win by El Salvador, who finish second in the group.

El Salvador only needed a draw to finish ahead of Mexico to top the group and almost got their equaliser from Alexander Larin’s 70th minute free-kick which hit the post.

Mexico took the lead when Tigres full-back Rodriguez pushed forward, receiving the ball on the right side of the box, cutting inside before shooting for the winner.
