BBC Scotland Report: Giovani dos Santos’ early goal was enough to ensure a victory for World Cup-bound Mexico as Scotland ended their Americas tour with two defeats.
Dos Santos’ side-footed finish off the inside of a post came after only 13 minutes in the Estadio Azteca.
Miguel Layun and Hirving Lozano both hit the woodwork for Mexico.
Scotland’s Oli McBurnie did the same, but it was the hosts who dominated and Oribe Peralta also had the ball in the net but was flagged offside.
Mexico improved on their midweek 0-0 draw with Wales to complete back-to-back games without conceding a goal for the first time under coach Juan Carlos Osorio.
