Poyet’s Uruguay slip to last minute defeat

Diego Poyet's Uruguay U20's lost 2-1 to Mexico
Uruguay U20’s conceded an injury-time goal as Diego Poyet’s side lost 2-1 to their Mexican counterparts. 

Mexico midfielder Kevin Gonzalez, who plies his trade for top flight outfit Queretaro, scored in the 93rd minute to seal a vital win for his country. 

In a tense game, West Ham United’s Diego Poyet came on in the 70th minute, replacing compatriot Alan Mendez. 

Within seconds of taking to the field, Poyet’s men found themselves a goal behind as Hirving Lozano's shot broke the deadlock. 

Los Charruas looked to have rescued a point and maintain their unbeaten start to their campaign when Mathias Suarez equalised with seven minutes to go. 

However, the South American’s were put under pressure when defender Erick Cabaco received a second yellow card.  The pressure soon took its toll as Gonzalez found the winner with seconds remaining.

The win for Mexico leaves Group D evenly poised as Serbia, Mali, Uruguay and Mexico are all on three points from the opening two games. 

The third round of fixtures will be played on Saturday 6 June with Serbia playing Mexico and Mali facing Uruguay.
