Goals from Corona, Damm lift Mexico past Honduras in World Cup qualifier

Second-half substitutes Jesus Corona and Jurgen Damm scored to lead Mexico to a 2-0 win over Honduras on Tuesday in a World Cup qualifier at San Pedro Sula.

Mexico had not won a World Cup qualifier at Honduras since 1993 and had not won a qualifier at San Pedro Sula since 1965.

Corona scored in the 67th minute, six minutes after entering, volleying a ball to himself off a cleared set piece before lacing home a low blast from the edge of the Honduras box. Damm entered in the 70th minute and doubled the score two minutes later.

The match was marred by a gruesome injury to Honduras's Luis Garrido, who suffered multiple ligament tears in his knee and will reportedly miss at least a year of action. He plays on the club level for the Houston Dynamo.

El Tri had opened Friday at home with a 3-0 win over El Salvador.
