That's it. Mexico wins its third match of the year and its first of the 2013 Gold Cup. This is a breath of fresh air for José Manuel de la Torre, even though the team did not have a stellar performance. There is a lot of work to do.
Mexico sits second, but Martinique also has three points, therefore Sunday's match is key for qualification.

90'—Javier Orozco with a good header that finds the crossbar. It could have been the third goal for El Tri.
88'—Marcel de Jong with a powerful shot from outside the box. The ball smashes into the crossbar.
Mexico has defeated Canada twice by this same score (2-0). The first one in 1958, the other in 2002.
82'—Keven Aleman comes in for Kyle Bekker
Mexican fans chanting on the stands. This could be the third win for El Tri in 2013.
76'— Javier Orozco in for Marco Fabian, the man who scored the second goal.
74'—Ricketts with a fantastic cross that none of his teammates can touch. Too bad for Canada because this was one of its best opportunities so far.
72'—Rafael Marquez leaves the pitch. Miguel Ponce comes in.
66'—David Edgar with the first yellow card of the match. He kicked Jimenez.
64'—Fabian with a pass to Jimenez, who received dreadfully. A good chance wasted.
61'—Kyle Porter in for Nakajima-Farran. Porter has only played twice with Canada.
Mexico leads Canada 2-0. Raul Jimenez and Marco Fabian with the goals. Both of them played in the Olympic squad in 2012.
55'—Marco Fabian receives a forward pass from Marquez Lugo and Kyle Bekker tackles the Mexican forward.
53'—Alejandro Castro in for Jorge Enriquez.
52'—Marco Fabian with a long-distance shot that Borjan stops. Fabian could have waited for some of his teammates came into the box and create a real goal opportunity.
49'—Jorge Enriquez is injured. He is receiving medical attention and seems like he will leave the pitch.
Second half underway
Mexico needs to be better and take advantage of Jimenez's goal.
After 45 minutes Mexico defeats Canada 1-0. The result does not reflect what we have seen so far. Canada has been superior.
However, this goal can give this match more pace and emotion.
Do not go anywhere. I will be back shortly.
41'—Borjan sends to corner a shot from Marco Fabián. Raul Jimenez with a superb header puts Mexico ahead.
40 minutes and Canada is playing with a lot more clarity than Mexico. El Tri is slow and with no direction.
Of course, Mexican TV not referencing the consistent booing coming from Seattle crowd.— Eric Gómez (@goaleric) July 12, 2013
