Mexico beat Saudi Arabia 2-1 in their final group stage match but it won't be enough to send El Tri through to the knockout stage.
Both Mexican goals came early in the second half. In the 47th minute, Henry Martín got on the end of an El Tri corner to get his team's first goal of the tournament. Five minutes later, Luis Chávez scored on a booming free kick to make it 2-0.
A goal by Saudi Arabia’s Salem Al Dawsari in extra time all but sealed Mexico’s elimination from the World Cup.
