Barrera brilliance inspires Mexico

Pablo Barrera earned rave reviews again as he made both goals as Mexico won through to the semi-finals of the CONCACAF Gold Cup.

The Mexico winger has been in fine form at the continental championship and set up decisive strikes for Aldo De Negris and Javier Hernandez to help El Tri come back from a goal down for a 2-1 victory.

Barrera, who turns 24 on Monday, was winning his 36th cap in front of 80,000 fans at New Jersey's Meadowlands Stadium. The West Ham man has appeared in all of his country's matches at the tournament and should line up again in Wednesday's semi-final against Honduras in Houston.
