Mexico was a great candidate for one of the two qualifying tickets for the next Tokyo Olympics. On the one hand, he was a favorite for being a local in the tournament that took place in Jalisco. On the other, because of history, which says that he won the gold medal at the London 2012 event and that in recent years he has grown a lot in the Under 23 category. And on Sunday night, El Tri surpassed 2- 0 to Canada and qualified for the mid-year competition. 

After the first 45 minutes, El Tri failed to disturb their rival, but neither did they suffer in their own goal. However, luck changed in the complement. Perhaps, the coach's talk in the locker room reassured his team, who went out into the second half wanting to go to the Olympics.

At 57 minutes, and after a blunder by the Canadian defense, Charly Rodríguez recovered the ball and gave it to Uriel Antuna. Without getting nervous, the footballer who belongs to the Chivas of Guadalajara defined before the goalkeeper's exit and opened the scoring before those present in Jalisco.

As if this were not enough, the Mexico Under-23 team stretched the lead to 65 minutes. After a service executed by Sebastián Córdova, and a shot from Johan Vásquez that hit the post, the central defender of Pumas UNAM scored the final 2-0 and unleashed a party in the stands.

How did Mexico form? Sebastián Jurado; Vladimir Loroña, Johan Vásquez, Jesús Angulo, Erick Aguirre; Carlos Rodríguez, Joaquín Esquivel, Sebastián Córdova; Roberto Alvarado, Alexis Vega and Uriel Antuna.

This was the triumph and classification of Mexico to the Tokyo Olympics
