On this day - 22 June

Anniversary

Mexico 2-0 Honduras
CONCACAF Gold Cup Semi-Finals
22 June 2011

Former Hammers winger Pablo Barrera won his 14th cap for Mexico on this day two years ago and helped his country earn a place in the final of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The continental competition for North and Central American sides had seen the Mexicans ease through the group stage with 5-0 wins over El Salvador and Cuba and a 4-1 victory over Costa Rica.

A 2-1 quarter-final success over Guatemala was next before Honduras, who defeated Costa Rica on penalties in their last-eight clash, were waiting in the semis.

Barrera started the contest, which remained at 0-0 after 90 minutes. But two goals in the first nine minutes of extra-time, one from Aldo de Nigris and the other from Javier Hernandez, won the game for Mexico.

Barrera would also play in the final, where his two goals helped Mexico see off hosts USA to claim their sixth Gold Cup title.
