In what many saw as an easy game for Mexico to either earn a draw or a victory against the 77th ranked team in the FIFA Standings, really took a turn for the worst for Mexico and their fans.
Early in the match, Andres Guardado committed a foul way outside of the box and it lead to a Venezuela free kick. From the free kick, Alejandro Guerra placed a well-delivered cross that went into the box was headed by Christian Santos and found Jose Manuel Velazquez.
From there, Velazquez — facing the ball — delivered a great strike on the ball in what almost looked like a haphazard scissor kick to beat Mexican goalie Jose de Jesus Corona for the early goal to give Venezuela the 1-0 lead.
Check out Velazquez’s crazy golazo from inside the area:
