Mexico vs Colombia score, result: El Tri suffer, see 2-0 lead turn into 3-2 loss

It’s a good sign that momentum is building prior to next year’s World Cup. Mexico did not just lose to Colombia in the final game before leaving for the World Cup in November, but also lost its 2-0 lead after a 3-2 defeat on Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara.

Mexico performed its best half of the season taking the lead at halftime 2-0 due to the penalty that was converted early to Alexis Vega, and a goal scored by the left-back Gerardo Arteaga. But the wheels fell to a halt in the third period.

Colombia used three substitutes at the start of the second half, and then scored three goals that were unanswered in the second period with two of them scored goals scored by Leeds United’s Luis Sinisterra and a stunning strike from the midfielder Wilmer Barrios.

There was a torrent of Colombian attacks during the second half, and Mexico did not have a response. El Tri manager Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino tried to make some changes in his personnel to stop the flood but it didn’t succeed and Mexico must now head into the World Cup in November with an unpleasant taste on their lips.

Mexico will host two warm-up matches before heading towards Qatar during November. Iraq at the end of November. 9. Sweden on November. 16 Both matches will be played at Girona, Spain. Mexico is then set to play the debut Group C match against Poland on November. 22.
