MOST COMMENTED

[MEXICO-NIGERIA] Mexico has played six games in 2013 and tied all of them. But Mexican fans could take some solace for this one: the Tri, who played the last 60 minutes with 10 men after a red card to Pablo Barrera, rallied to tie Nigeria, 2-2, before 62,107 fans at Houston's Reliant Stadium.

Javier Hernandez's second goal of the game in the 71st minute tied the score.

Barrera set up Chicharito for the game's first goal in the 21st minute but he was sent off soon thereafter for a handball in the area for the first Mexico red card in Chepo de la Torre's 36 games as head coach.

Austin Ejide converted the penalty kick to even the score and John Ogu put the Super Eagles ahead in the 40th minute.

Mexico now heads to Jamaica to face the Reggae Boyz in World Cup qualifying. The game was moved up because of the Tri's participation in the Confederations Cup.
