Hirving Lozano’s last-gasp header earned Mexico a 1-0 friendly victory over Costa Rica on Tuesday.

Costa Rica’s goal lived a charmed life throughout the meeting in Austria, though it appeared Keylor Navas and company had done enough to keep Mexico at bay.

Indeed, Mexico’s luck seemed out when Lozano and Orbelin Pineda both hit the crossbar in the 73rd minute, either side of Paris Saint-Germain goalkeeper Navas making a superb stop on the line to deny Hector Moreno.

Yet fortune ultimately favoured Gerardo Martino’s side – who had 18 attempts but only hit the target three times – with Lozano turning in Luis Romo’s flick-on in the 89th minute before a dreadful miss from Allan Cruz at the other end settled the contest.
