Mexico's pursuit of back-to-back Gold Cup titles continues in earnest with a trip to Glendale, Ariz., to take on Honduras in the quarterfinals on Saturday.
El Tri's title defense got off to a shaky start with a scoreless draw against Trinidad and Tobago, where star winger Chucky Lozano suffered a nasty collision and neck injury that will also rule the Napoli star out for the next month.
But Mexico bounced back with a 3-0 win over Guatemala and a 1-0 victory against El Salvador to top the group on seven points. Monterrey forward Rogelio Funes Mori leads El Tri with two goals at the tournament in his first month since switching allegiances from Argentina.
