New Zealand took a shock lead just before half time after Chris Wood was put through on goal and finished convincingly. Chris Wood should have put the game to bed for New Zealand but his finishing, once through on goal, was poor and Chile produced an equaliser 10 minutes into the second half. Peralta put the Mexicans ahead on 72 minutes, but this was far from a convincing win by Mexico and there should have been a Mexican sending off but the referee neglected to use the VAR.
