The Mexican Team achieved a very important victory in their visit to Cuscatlán by beating El Salvador 0-2 with the return scorer of Raúl Jiménez to support Mexico at the top of the Concacaf Octagonal towards Qatar 2022. At minute 30, Héctor Moreno rose to connect an accurate header and beat local goalkeeper Mario González after a great cross from Jesús' Tecatito'Corona on a corner kick.
In the throes of the match, perhaps in the moments of most urgency for the tricolor team, a masterfully charged maximum penalty by Jiménez sealed an important victory for Mexico. Neither pressure from the local fans or the poor state of the Cuscatlán stadium court could stop the team led by Gerardo Martino, who surprised with eight changes in the line-up compared to the one he had used in the match against Honduras.
With this result, Mexico reached 14 points, followed by the United States with 11, and Canada with 10, and little by little it begins to stamp its passport for the next World Cup.
However, the news of the day was the return of Raúl Jiménez to the goal, after almost a year. His last entry had been on November 17, 2020, before his skull fracture. And how was he going to come back if it wasn't with a great goal? It is true, it was a criminal offense. But penalties can also be cute. And considering the great play he made, no one would dare to discuss it.
