Video: Mexico 0 – Sweden 1 (International Friendly Highlights)

[digg=http://digg.com/soccer/Mexico_0_Sweden_1_International_Friendly_Highlights]Midfielder Alexander Farnerud fired home an open 18-yard shot in the 57th minute to provide the winning goal in Sweden’s 1-0 victory over Mexico in an international friendly on Wednesday night.

Farnerud scored by converting a long cross from Rasmus Elm. Farnerud settled the high pass and fired with his left foot across the goalmouth to the left post. The ball bounced off the woodwork and into the net, leaving Mexican goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, a reserve who came on at halftime, no chance.

Mexico coach Sven-Goran Eriksson, a Sweden native, again failed to defeat his homeland in international play. Including four matches as coach of the English national team. Eriksson is 0-2-3 against Sweden.
