Mexico Beats US 3-1, Wins 12th U-20 Title

Mexico won its 12th U-20 CONCACAF title against the United States, beating them 3-1 in overtime.

In overtime, it was a repeat of the 2011 U-17 World Cup with Julio Gómez scoring with a chilena to give Mexico the lead. Jorge Espericueta sealed the 3-1 win with a penalty kick in the 113th minute.
