Mexico defeats Martinique 3-1. Still a lot of uncertainty with El Tri. The team is not focused and clearly lacks of a strategy.
Miguel Layun had two assists, Marco Fabian scored his third goal of the tournament and Miguel Ponce grabbed his first goal with the first team.
This puts Mexico in the second place of Group A, which means the quarterfinal game could be against Haiti or Honduras, depending on their pending matches (July 15).
