Mexico, after losing in the first day against Germany, went out onto the field aware of the need to score points to continue with their chances of advancing to the round, but their initial plans vanished after six minutes when Alejandro Cichero overtook Venezuela.

The vinotinto team was unable to maintain its advantage because from the 39th minute onwards it played with one less player, due to the expulsion of Giovanny Sequera after a tough tackle on Brandon Lomeli.

In the second half, with numerical superiority, Mexico was better than its rival and in just five minutes, from 62' to 67', it turned the score around with goals from Stephano Carrillo and Luis Ortiz.

Venezuela did not collapse and sought the equalizer, finding a reward for its insistence almost at the end, when Nicola Profetagot the tie from a penalty kick.
