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.
