Gold Cup champions Mexico are one of the few teams with a lengthy unbeaten run in international football after the latest set of games played earlier this month. Mexico took their unbeaten run to ten games after the two matches played during the recent international break.

Mexico have not tasted defeat since they were thrashed 4-0 by Argentina last year. In the friendly game played at the Alamodome Stadium in San Antonio, Texas on the 11th of September in 2019, Argentina scored all the four goals in the first half.

Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez scored two goals in five minutes to hand his team a 2-0 lead before Paris Saint Germain (PSG) midfielder Leandro Paredes added a third goal from the penalty spot on 33 minutes. Martinez hit his hattrick goal on 39 minutes to wrap up the comprehensive win.
Since that defeat, Mexico have won nine games and drawn just one game from the ten played at international level. This run has seen the Mexicans climb to 11th on the latest FIFA Rankings released on the 22nd of last month. From the last ten internationals, the 2-2 draw with 10-man Algeria in an international friendly was the only game that the Mexicans failed to win.
In the last two games played earlier this month, Mexico beat Asian oppositions. The Mexicans edge South Korea in a five-goal thriller before beating Japan 2-0. The 11-time Gold Cup champions came from behind to beat the South Koreans 3-2 at the Weiner Neustadt Stadium in Austria.
Bordeaux striker Ui-jo Hwang gave South Korea a 20th minute lead before Mexico turned it around with three second half goals through Wolves striker Raul Jimenez, substitute Uriel Antuna and defender Carlos Salcedo. Kwon Kyung-won pulled one back three minutes to the end of the game as Mexico went on to take victory. In their second international game in November, Raul Jimenez and Hirving Lozano scored within five second half minutes to beat Japan 2-0 at the Liebenauer Stadium in Austria.
