Mexico coach handed six-game ban for Confederations Cup outburst

Mexico coach handed six-game ban for Confederations Cup outburst

El Tri does not have its best players in this competition with nearly a full Liga MX side, Erick Torres from the Houston Dynamo being the only player who does not play in Mexico on the squad.

If not for Villalobos, it could have been worse for El Salvador as the floodgates threatened to open - the Aguilla man thwarting Mexico despite clearly struggling with a knee problem, though he eventually succumbed to injury. Mexico finished with 66 percent possession and 16 shots (seven on goal) to El Salvador's 12 (four on goal), per ESPNFC.us.

"Depending on the stage at which the final match of the Mexican national team takes place in the CONCACAF Gold Cup 2017, any remaining matches of this six-match suspension shall be served during the national team's subsequent official matches".

Elias Hernandez had himself one helluva time on Sunday night against El Salvador, scoring a goal with a vicious volley and assisting on both Hedgardo Marin and Orbelin Pineda's strikes. However, El Salvador was resolute in defense and quick on the counter, even managing to generate more chances early on.

ESPN Stats & Info noted it was the third straight game in which Hernandez notched a goal for Mexico. In the second half, El Salvador's opportunities on goal were restricted to efforts from longer range or set pieces, while Mexico's more solid base seemed to give the forward players more confidence. El Tri got the insurance goal it needed in the 55th minute, courtesy of Pineda, who came into the midfield as a halftime substitute. He took a sizzling Hernandez shot to the face earlier in the contest, only to limp off the field a few minutes later and be replaced by Derby Carrillo. It was a theme that repeated all too often for Mexico, especially in the first half, although it points to El Tri being an exciting team to watch at this Gold Cup.

And they stepped up, overcoming a spirited challenge from minnows El Salvador, who cancelled out Marin's eighth-minute opener within two minutes thanks to Nelson Bonilla at Qualcomm Stadium, but Elias Hernandez put Mexico ahead again prior to half-time.
