Mexico’s game-winning goal against Panama by Raul Jimenezs bicycle kick


Raul Jimenez scored on a 16-yard bicycle kick in the 85th minute — four minutes after Mexico had allowed a tying goal and El Tri beat Panama 2-1 Friday night at Azteca Stadium to revive its hopes to qualifying for its sixth straight World Cup.

Jimenez, who entered in the 83rd, received a cross with his back to the goal, tipped the ball in the air to himself and beat goalkeeper Jaime Penedo with an overhead kick.

Hernández had a chance to score in the 58th minute, but Penedo saved his penalty kick after Cummings’s foul on Javier Aquino.

With the victory in Victor Manuel Vucetich’s first game as coach, Mexico (2-2-5) improved to 11 points and overtook Panama (1-3-5) for fourth place in the final round of qualifying for Concacaf.
