Mexico thrash Super Eagles 4-0

The home-based Super Eagles were blitzed 4-0 by Mexico in the international friendly played in Los Angeles, USA, in the early hours of Sunday.

A brace from Atletico Madrid midfielder Hector Herrera and goals from former Barcelona forward Jonathan Dos Santos and former Everton defender Rogelio Funes Mori, secured the comfortable win for El Tri who have never lost to Nigeria.

Mexico, coached by Argentine Tata Martino, dominated the early exchanges and went 1-0 up in the 2nd minute through skipper Herrera, who slammed home a corner after he was left unmarked at the far post.

Just two minutes later Mexico doubled their lead as Funes Mori finished off a cross from the right with his left foot.

The Mexicans resumed their dominance of the game but met goalkeeper Stanley Nwabali in good form.

But in the 51st minute Mexico went 3-0 up thanks to Herrera who grabbed his second of the game.

The Eagles went close to getting on the score sheet but Alfredo Tala made a good save to maintain the score.

And in the 77th minute Mexico got their fourth goal through Dos Santos who finished with a superb strike after Erick Gutierrez sent a pass behind the Eagles’ defence.
