Mexico’s Insane 3-Goal Blitz In 4 Minutes Ended South Korea

Mexico scored three goals in four minutes to quickly turn a deficit into a 3-2 win over South Korea on Saturday at the Stadion Wiener Neustadt in Austria.

Raúl Jiménez, Uriel Antuna and Carlos Salcedo scored within minutes from the 67th to 70th minutes to erase an early goal created by Son Heung-min. The friendly was played in Austria without fans at the same stadium where the USMNT will face Panama on Monday.

Mexico vs South Korea Highlights

El Tri had half-a-dozen chances in the first half but went into the break trailing 1-0 thanks to a brilliant cross from Son. Clearly, the Spurs winger has been playing FIFA 21, because he whipped in the type of cross that is almost guaranteed to score in the new FIFA, and Hwang Ui-jo obliged in the 20th minute.

Orbelín Pineda and Antuna entered the match in the 54th minute and it wasn’t long before Mexico was on top with its three-goal barrage, starting with Jiménez in the 67th minute. 

The Wolves striker capitalized on some strong pressing from Mexico with a clinical finish.

Less than two minutes later, El Tri took the lead.

Pineda, who set up the first goal, played a perfect through ball for Antuna to make it 2-0.

Salcedo completed the goal-scoring blitz with a sure-fire volley from short range. 

South Korea managed to pull one back off a corner kick in the 87th minute that went in off Kwon Kyung-Won.

Mexico held on for the 3-2 victory and now has three wins and a draw in its last four friendlies since international football resumed in September. El Tri plays Japan on Tuesday in Graz, Austria.
