    Mexico 2-1 Nigeria: Troost-Ekong own-goal hands Mexico win

    Mexico got their international window off to a positive start, earning a 2-1 win over Nigeria in Arlington on Saturday.

    In front of a healthy crowd in Texas, William Troost-Ekong’s own-goal in the 56th minute eventually proved the difference between the two sides, only two minutes after Cyriel Dessers equalised for Nigeria.

    Though Nigeria failed to qualify for this year’s World Cup, El Tri are ramping up preparations for the event in Qatar, with this being the first of three friendlies before the CONCACAF Nations League opener against Suriname in June.

    Santiago Gimenez opened the scoring for a makeshift Mexico squad in the 12th minute, with Gerardo Martino using the second half primarily as an opportunity to integrate Diego Lainez and Edson Alvarez from the bench.
