Allstate Save of the Game: Jesus Corona, Mexico (14’)

Although Curacao was only playing for pride after being eliminated from contention thanks to Jamaica and El Salvador playing to a 1-1 draw in Group C earlier in the evening, Mexico wanted to win in order to top the table.  As a result of the pressure being relieved, the Curacaoans played some free-flowing football and created plenty of scoring opportunities.  One of those came in the 14th minute, when Michael Maria attracted the attention of Mexican defenders, before slipping a pass to his right for Gino van Kessel.  From the right side of the box, the forward unleashed a shot that obliged Jesus Corona into producing the Allstate Save of the Game.
