The Mexico Under-23 side that will be participating in the Olympics in Rio de Janeiro defeated Ascenso MX side Zacatepec 2-0 in a warm-up game on Tuesday.

Raul "Potro" Gutierrez's side took the initiative from the first minute, scoring the afternoon's first following a combination from Oribe Peralta and Marco Bueno that led to Carlos Cisneros firing home the 1-0.

Monterrey midfielder Arturo "Poncho" Gonzalez then made Mexico's dominance pay by scoring the decisive 2-0.

It wasn't all joy, however, as the afternoon was marred by an injury to defender Cesar Montes, who left the game in the first half with an apparent knee injury.

The young El Tri side will play their last game in Mexican soil before travelling to Brazil on July 28 when they take on Argentina at the Estadio Cuauhtemoc. Mexico then open Olympic play against Germany on August 4 at the Itaipava Arena Fonte Nova in Salvador, Brazil.
