Mexico struggled to beat Curacao on Sunday at the Gold Cup but came away with a 2-0 victory to win Group C and move on.

The result was enough for Mexico to finish at the summit of the group, where it will now face Honduras in the quarterfinals.
Here's that winning goal from Sepulveda.
Mexico didn't create many chances but dominated possession and got a late strike from Edson Alvarez to double up the tally, jumping Jamaica to win the group with seven points.
