Rogelio Funes Mori on target as Mexico cruise to Gold Cup win over Guatemala
Funes Mori, a 30-year-old born in Argentina, scored his second and third goals for Mexico. He made his debut in a June 3 exhibition against Nigeria and was playing his third international match.
In a match delayed by a storm, Funes Mori put El Tri ahead in the 29th minute, chesting a lofted pass from Héctor Herrera just inside the penalty area, cutting the ball back to his right foot and beating goalkeeper Nicholas Hagen from 12 yards.
Funes Mori doubled the lead in the 55th with a right-footed shot from 8 yards off a cross from Pineda, and Pineda added a goal on a six-yard leaping header in the 79th from a Luis Rodríguez cross.
