TUXTLA, Mexico -- With a brace from Eduardo Herrera, Mexico began the final part of its preparation toward the Copa America by beating Guatemala 3-0 on Saturday.
Herrera tucked home passes from Gerardo Flores and Hugo Ayala to score in the 30th and 63rd minutes to guide El Tri, who will debut in Chile 2015 on June 12 against Bolivia.
The Pumas striker, who received his first opportunity in Miguel Herrera's team in a friendly earlier this year, brought his tally to three goals with Mexico.
