[MEXICO-DENMARK] A day after its dismal 0-0 draw with Canada, the USA could take heart that Mexico didn't do much better in its Hexagonal tuneup on Wednesday at
University of Phoenix Stadium. Missing just four European-based players, the Tri had to settle for a 1-1 tie with a Danish "B" team.
Marco Fabian scored his first goal for Mexico from the penalty spot in the 68th minute, but 19-year-old Andreas Cornelius evened the scored with a spot kick of his own 16 minutes later. The game ended with the Arizona crowd jeering the Tri.
The goal came after defender Jorge Torres took Cornelius down from behind in the penalty area.
Cornelius had a hat trick in the Danes' 4-0 win over Canada on Saturday.
