A brace from substitute Hirving Lozano gave Mexico a 2-1 friendly win over Iceland at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday. Iceland led most of the way thanks to an own goal after 14 minutes by Edson Alvarez, but Mexico finally found a rhythm in the second half.
Lozano came on in the 63rd minute and equalised 10 minutes later, sending a right-footed shot past Runar Alex Runarsson.
The Napoli forward netted the winner in the 78th minute, heading home Hector Herrera’s cross from close range for the final margin.
