Gold Cup: Aldo de Nigris guides Mexico into the finals

The veteran striker continues to make a killing off the bench after his header in extra time finally breaks the stalemate.
A few minutes later from yet another corner his header falls to Chicharito Hernandez and the Man Utd striker has little to do except allow the ball to bounce off his body into goal. It was his 7th goal in this Gold Cup. The record belongs to another Mexican of Brazilian origin, Luís Roberto Alves aka Zaguinho with 11 goals.
Mexico wasted a number of chances with Hector Moreno, Hernandez, de Nigris, and Giovani dos Santos with perhaps the easiest of them all missing out. Yet it was Honduras that could have won it with Roger Espinoza’s piledriver barely kept out by a leaping Alfredo Talavera.
Mexico now meet the USA in the Gold Cup finals in a much anticipated showdown between CONCACAF’s two heaviest hitters.
