The score of the match

The match ended in a 2-2 draw, in the last match of the year for the Mexican national team, coached by Gerardo Martino and played at the Q2 stadium in Austin.

The goals were scored by Santiago Giménez and Jordan Silva for Mexico, while Iván Morales and Pablo Parra scored for Chile.

Although the match was intense and hard-fought, the lack of experience in both teams was noticeable, particularly in the Mexican team, where the player who shone the most was the young goalkeeper Carlos Acevedo.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper took his chance to raise his hand and fight for a place in Mexico's upcoming CONCACAF qualifiers in search of a ticket to the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar

The goals of the match Mexico Vs Chile

The match began with a spectacular save by goalkeeper Carlos Acevedo in the 3rd minute when Benjamin Kusevic shot in front of the Mexican goalkeeper's goal. 

But the first goal was Mexican and it came in the 9th minute, when in a very tight play, Arturo Gonzales shot towards the goal, the goalkeeper Sebastián Pérez rejected the ball, but Santiago Gimenez recovered the ball and put it into the net, to make the score 1-0. 

After this goal, Chile went for the draw and in the 21st minute of the match they got it. Joaquín Montecinos tried first in the 20th minute when he put a ball into the box, but the play did not materialize. 

But in the 21st minute he insisted and succeeded when Iván Morales took possession of the rebound and sent the ball into the net, making the score 1-1. Both teams went into halftime tied and prepared for the second half. 

In the 64th minute of the second half, the Mexicans took the lead when Jordan Silva scored a header off a precise cross from Sebastián Córdova's free kick. 

But in the 86th minute, Pablo Parra of Chile tied the match 2-2 with a left-footed goal.  

Gerardo Martino's words after the draw against Chile

Mexico's coach gave his impressions of the game, and how he saw Mexico during the match. 

"Marcelo came on the moment we thought it was necessary. I understand the expectations, but we need to be cautious with a boy who is barely 18 years old". 

"Today we were better in the second half. Not only this game can bring players to the national team, but also what they do with their clubs", were Gerardo Martino's words.

This is a change in direction from his strong statements a few days ago detailing how he felt about coaching Mexico in the CONCACAF qualifiers

Whereas at the time he saw a complicated outlook, Martino now seems more optimistic about the future of the Mexican national soccer team.
