El Salvador national football team vs Mexico national football team: Concacaf Gold Cup game
On Sunday night, Mexico received the win it needed to finish first in Group A of the Gold Cup, but the hero of El Tri’s 1-0 triumph over El Salvador was surprise right back Luis ‘Chaka’ Rodriguez, who surged forward to score the game’s first goal.
Before Sunday, Rodriguez had only scored once in his career for his country, in a friendly against Ecuador in 2019. In the 26th minute, he beat goalkeeper Mario Antonio Martinez with a deflection after cutting inside his defender.
El Tri, who battled now and again to contain El Salvador in the subsequent half, will confront the sprinter up of Group D – which could be Honduras, Qatar or Panama – in the quarterfinals.
