Mexico beats Chile 1-0 in World Cup warmup
MEXICO CITY (AP) — Alberto Medina scored in the first half Sunday to give Mexico a 1-0 exhibition win over Chile in its last warmup match at home before heading to Europe to prepare for the World Cup.
Mexico coach Javier Aguirre fielded a strong team, spearheaded by new Manchester United signing Javier Hernandez and veteran playmaker Cuauhtemoc Blanco.
Chile coach Marcelo Bielsa selected a more experimental lineup, including fringe players such as goalkeeper Luis Marin and forward Jaime Valdez.
Both coaches have until June 1 to announce their final 23-man squads for the tournament in South Africa that begins June 11.
