Costa Rica pressed at the start of the game but at 6 ‘Uriel Antuna pushed Sebastián Córdova’s cross pass for Mexico to take the advantage.
The second goal fell in the second half, with a good cross impact from Alexis Vega from outside the area with a small wall -accidentally made?- by Antuna, whose ball was going a little long.
At 61 ‘Antuna again had a cross thanks to an exit from the right side of Loroña but Antuna’s cross ball was sent away by a defender.
When Costa Rica arrived in danger to the area of Mexico, the locals counter attacked the goalkeeper Malagón, who gave it to Carlos Rodríguez, who ran in the band, crossed it overhead to Jesús Angulo, who perfectly stopped the ball and the rhythm and gave it to Carlos Rodríguez, who put it with his chest to Córdova, who scored his fourth goal in this tournament.
