[MEXICO-PERU] Mexico is still looking for its first win of 2013. The Tri's 0-0 tie with Peru in a friendly Wednesday night before 46,288 fans at San Francisco's Candlestick Park was its fifth draw -- and third scoreless draw -- in five games this year. Mexico's Angel Reyna had a penalty kick stopped in the second half.

Mexico was missing its European-based regulars, but the game was seen as a big chance for other players to step up in light of Mexico's three ties in three Hexagonal matches -- two at home -- to start the final round of World Cup qualifying.

April 17 in San Francisco
Mexico 0 Peru 0.
Mexico -- Corona (Talavera 46); Maza, Ayala, Torres Nilo, Flores, Pena (Herrera 46), Torrado (Molina 46), Reyna (Cortes 83), Barrera (Montes 73), Jimenez, Marquez Lugo (Bravo 61).
Peru -- Carvalho, Duarte, Ramos, Contreras (Callens 74), Cespedes (Garcia 67), Ballon (Vargas 67), Albarracin (Gonzalez 74), Guevara (Benavente), Gomez, Advincula, Reyna (Ruidiaz 46).
Att.: 46,288.

    The defense did not look good. Barrera looked like he deserved to be on top team and I would give Marquez a shot as well. Diego Reyes should have played this entire game to show why he should be a full time starter on Mexico's Senior team.

    Wow. Who would have thought El Tri would go through such a stretch with such a hard time scoring?
