[GOLD CUP] Javier Hernandez scored three goals in the last half hour to give Mexico a 5-0 win over El Salvador before a sell-out crowd of 80,108 at Cowboys Stadium on Sunday.

Efrain Juarez opened the scoring in the 55th minute and Aldo De Nigris made it 2-0 three minutes later before "Chicharito" put the game away with goals in the 60th, 67th and 90th minutes, the last from the penalty spot.

The New York Red Bulls' Rafael Marquez, the longtime Mexico captain, didn't start. He came on in the middle of the second half after the score was 4-0.

A hamstring injury kept Arturo Alvarez out of the El Salvador lineup.

Marcos Urena scored two goals as Costa Rica also crushed Cuba, 5-0, in the first game of the Group A doubleheader.

Real Salt Lake's Alvaro Saborio, Heiner Mora and Joel Campbell also scored for the Ticos.
