Mexico tops Canada in Gold Cup, will play Martinique
SEATTLE (AP) -- Raul Jimenez scored off of a corner kick late in the first half, and Marco Fabian converted a penalty early in the second as Mexico bounced back from an opening-game loss to beat Canada 2-0 in a CONCACAF Gold Cup group-stage game Thursday night.
Mexico, which lost 2-1 to Panama last Sunday, climbed back into contention in heading into Sunday's Group A finale against Martinique in Denver. Those two teams are tied with 3 points each.
Panama, a 1-0 winner over Martinique in Thursday's first game at CenturyLink Field, leads the group with 6 points ahead of its Sunday game against Canada, which was eliminated.
