Mexico Tops Curacao 2-0 To Win Their Gold Cup Group

A Jamaica tie and a Mexico victory put El Tri at the top of Group C.

Mexico managed to top Group C at the CONCACAF Gold Cup with a 2-0 victory over Curacao and a 1-1 draw between Jamaica and El Salvador.

Mexico didn't have it easy, though. Jesus Corona was called into action early, and made a fine save to prevent Curacao from going ahead.

Midway through the first half, though, Angel Sepulveda game Mexico a lead they wouldn't relinquish.

Edson Alvarez finally put the game away in extra time.

Mexico will play Honduras in the quarterfinals on Thursday in Phoenix, Arizona.
