The team was up 2-0 in the first half. What broke the back of the Mexican National Team was Alexis Sanchez scoring the most important first goal of the second half to extend the lead to 3-0. The spirit was broken for Mexico then Chile went on to score four more times. Eduardo Vargas scored four times for Chile with Edson Puch netting two goals.
