Mexico suffered a defeat at the hands of Brazil, falling 2-0 during a group match in the Confederations Cup.
Goals from Neymar and Jo left Mexico with a second defeat in the tournament and zero points.
Fellow group member Japan gave Mexico hope during their match against Italy, but the eventual loss by the Asian nation meant that el Tri would not move beyond the group stages of the tournament.
Mexico: Corona, Rodríguez, Moreno, Salcido, Flores(58′ Herrera), Torres Nilo(70′ Barrera), Mier, Torrado(88’Jimenez), Guardado, Dos Santos, Hernández
Brazil: Júlio César, D. Alves, Thiago Silva, David Luiz, Marcelo, Fred(82’Jo), Oscar(62′ Hernanes), Luiz Gustavo, Paulinho, Hulk(78’Lucas), Neymar
Brazil quickly pounced on the opening moments of the match against Mexico.
It wasn’t long before Neymar got on the score sheet. A stunning volley flashed past Jesus Corona in the 9th minute.
Again, Corona saved in the 12th minute preventing Mexico from falling again.
Mexico managed to muster a response in the 16th minute when Hiram Mier hit a shot that sailed just past Julio Cesar’s right post.
Brazil settled and attempted to build.
In the end, Mexico’s attempts were not good enough.
Down the flank, Neymar hustled around the Mexican defenders and set up the ball in front of goal. Jo met it and slotted it to the back of the net in added time.
Mexico play Japan on June 22 but neither team has possibilities of moving on to the next round.
