Jesus "Tecatito" Corona scored a goal that will go down as one of the Copa America Centenario's best. With the score at 1-0 in favor of Venezuela, the FC Porto winger took matters to his own hands and dribbled his way past several Venezuelan defenders before firing past Dani Hernandez to level the score.

Tecatito's goal was enough to ensure Mexico finished first in Group C of the Copa America Centenario and avoid a potential match-up with Lionel Messi and Argentina in the quarterfinals. What's more, his goal also made sure Juan Carlos Osorio remained unbeaten in front of El Tri since taking over for Ricardo "Tuca" Ferretti in late 2015. The goal was also Tecatito's first of the Copa America.

El Tri will now travel to Santa Clara, California for a potential quarterfinal clash with Chile or Panama at Levi's Stadium.
