Jose Juan Macias scored twice as Mexico secured an easy 5-1 win against Bermuda on Friday.

It was a surprisingly quiet affair until the 25th minute mark when the visitors opened scoring through Uriel Antuna. Hirving “Chucky” Lozano produced a fantastic through ball for Antuna, who weaved his way past the goalkeeper and put the ball into the back of the net.

El Tri doubled their lead at the stroke of halftime when Cristian Calderon picked out Jose Juan Macias inside the box and the the 20-year-old León forward scored with an impressive volley.

Macias got his second shortly after the break after collecting a rebound inside the box and firing in for Mexico’s third goal of the night.

The hosts managed to get one back in the 57th minute through a stunning Nahki Wells strike, but Chucky Lozano scored Mexico’s fourth with a brilliant reception and finish.

Chucky then had a chance to score a brace when Mexico had a penalty called in the 60th minute, but the Napoli forward could only see his spot kick hit the post and out.

Despite Lozano’s miss, El Tri would add one more goal to their collection after Hector Herrera sent a curling effort from the edge of the box into the back of the net to put the final score at 5-1 in favor of Mexico.

El Tri’s next CONCACAF Nations League match will be on Tuesday when they take on Panamá at the Estadio Azteca.
