After defeating Senegal with a late minute goal, the Mexican U-20 were off to face England in the U-20 quarterfinals. Similar to the trend of the other matches, Mexico’s offense was very slow to get going, so much so that they couldn’t get on the board before England.

Mexico got a great advantage with 20 minutes to go after England received a red card. Despite being up a man, Mexico just couldn’t connect for that equalizing goal, eliminating them from the tournament.
