Two headers from Chicharito see Mexico leave Japan pointless
Japan 1 – Mexico 2 (Confederations Cup, June 21, 2013) (Longer highlights.) Shinji Kagawa had an early chance saved, and Japan had a goal ruled out for offside in an entertaining start to the battle against the wooden spoon. El Tri took the lead after the break through a Javier Hernandez header in the six yard box. Mexico increased their advantage when Manchester United’s Chicharito headed in his second of the game. Japan set up a nervy finish as Shinji Okazaki halved the deficit with a close range finish. Javier Hernandez should have rounded off the win for Mexico from the penalty spot, but the striker saw a penalty saved abefore hitting the bar on the rebound.
