With mixed results in the qualification, many had fears of an upset by Jamaican foes. For example, Panama was a heavy favorite against El Salvador, but the Salvadorians put a 3-1 hurting on the Panamanians.
However, Mexico assured the fans no upset was in store. In the 12th minute, Zamorano shot a rocket which found the back of the net for El Tri. The lead gave Mexico some comfort room, but the crowd knew another goal would solidify a trip to Turkey 2013.
Marco Bueno did just that. A lofting cross found Bueno right on the forehead for the 2-0 lead into the half. Mexico was clicking on all cylinders.
The goal of the game was easily #3. Flores took a free kick, which the ball curved absolutely perfectly past the Jamaican keeper.
To wrap it up (as if the game wasn’t already in the books), Escoboza scored the last goal in the 75th minute.
Mexico is now guaranteed a spot for the World cup this summer. Yet, up next is a rematch against El Salvador (March 1). The other match up will be Cuba vs USA, which both teams have looked sharp.
