Mexico's U-21s struggled to find an early goal in their second group stage game in the Central American and Caribbean Games, but eventually knocked in two beautiful opportunities against El Salvador on Thursday.

The first goal scored was through an amazing free-kick by Raul Lopez in the 50th minute of the match. Lopez was surely aiming for one of his teammates but ended up sailing the ball into the back of the net.

The second, by Erick "Cubo" Torres in the 70th minute, was expertly played by the rising Mexican star. Cubo now has three goals in just two games for Mexico in this competition, good for second overall in the tournament to date.

With the win, Mexico now have a spot guaranteed in the semifinal round. Even if El Tri lose to Jamaica on Saturday, there is still a good chance that the team will finish in first place of their respective group.

Goals

Mexico: Raul Lopez 50', Erick Torres 70'
