Friendlies: Mexico thrash Super Eagles 4-0

Mexico thrashed Nigeria 4-0 in an international friendly played on Sunday morning.

The North American nation scored the first goal in the second minute through Hector Herrera and in only two minutes, El Tri doubled their lead, as Hirving Lozano linked up with Funes Mori, who found the top corner.

Mexico bagged the third six minutes after the break, as Herrera grabbed his brace. Jonathan dos Santos added the final goal in the 77th minute.

The match is preparation ahead of their 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup campaign which will begin on July 11.

Super Eagles coach, Gernot Rohr will probably not be impressed by the team, which was made up of players from the domestic league.

The Super Eagles were completely dominated in chance creation and ball possession, struggling against superior opponents.

Sunday’s result extended Mexico’s dominance over Nigeria after their six games haven won three games and the West Africans remain winless after three outings ended in a draw.
