Minute   Description
90' +3 FULL-TIME: CURACAO 0-2 MEXICO.
90' +1 E. Álvarez has scored a goal for Mexico!
MEXICO THROUGH AS GROUP WINNERS! Alvarez off the bench to seal it for El Tri with as cool a finish as you'd like, bending an effort beyond Room from 10 yards! The teenage defender is a fan favourite with the national team and has a bright future in front of him, but he will always remember this, his first international goal!
90' R. Janga enters the game and replaces A. Statie.
The final change of the match has Curacao bringing Rangelo Janga on with Statie the one replaced.
88' Precious time winding off the clock as Sepulveda goes down for Mexico and is in need of some attention from the training staff. A pair of Curacao players head over to try and hurry him up, which Sepulveda's teammates don't take kindly to, and it prompts a coming together.
86' SAVED ONTO THE BAR! That was the chance for Mexico to seal it, but some incredible reactions from Room deny them an insurance marker! He shows insane reflexes to parry Pereira's header off the bar from close range, before Hooi comes close at the other end following a remarkable bit of skill!
84' Remember, Curacao would need to score twice in the closing minutes to prevent Mexico from winning the group. A 1-1 draw would be enough for El Tri. This means, barring a miracle, Mexico are going on to face Honduras on Thursday, with Jamaica set to take on Canada.
83' E. Hooi enters the game and replaces G. Nepomuceno.
Curacao's second change sees Elson Hooi replace Nepomuceno.
81' Curacao are the side in need of a goal, but it's Mexico who continue to look the more threatening side. Curacao had their spell on top of the match and created a number of clear-cut chances, but a combination of Corona and the woodwork saw them exit it empty-handed.
79' The plethora of substitutions has taken the sting out of the match, but despite the slow tempo the chances keep coming. They've been falling to Mexico over the last 10 minutes, but Curacao have more than proven they are able to create in attack.
77' INCHES AWAY! Gallardo nearly puts his name on the scoresheet seconds after coming into the match! He makes a wonderful run off the ball to get on the end of Elias Hernandez's delivery, but places his header agonisingly wide of the far post!
