Mexico, facing a playoff against New Zealand for a World Cup berth next month, displayed a vibrant, aggressive game Wednesday in a 4-2 friendly win over Finland.
Miguel Herrera, the fourth manager in six weeks tasked with guiding the floundering side, Wednesday used seven players from his own Club America.
The Mexican goals were scored by Rafael Marquez in the 12th minute, Carlos Pena in the 24th, Oribe Peralta in the 47th and Jesus Alonso in the 65th.
Finland benefitted from several defensive lapses on Mexico's part -- something Herrera will want to address.
