Mexico show class with Japan win
Jose Fonseca
Mexico are now unbeaten in 19 games
Mexico came from behind to beat Japan 2-1 in their Group B opener at the Confederations Cup thanks to goals from Zinha and Jose Fonseca.

Atsushi Yanagisawa's 12th minute tap-in had given Japan a surprise early lead.

Just before the break Brazilian-born forward Zinha came up with a superb long-range strike to equalise.

Mexico dominated for the remainder of the game and sealed the victory when Jose Fonseca cleverly headed in a Luis Perez cross in the 64th minute.
