Mexico suffered their second straight defeat at the 2016 Toulon Tournament after losing 2-1 to the Czech Republic on Friday.

The Europeans opened the scoring after only 10 minutes when Dominic Preisler took care of a brilliant through ball to beat Raul Gudino for the 1-0.

The Czechs doubled their tally just four minutes later through a Matej Pulkrab header after an excellent delivery from the left-hand side escaped the Mexico defense.

Mexico halved their opponent’s lead after the break following a bad clearance that set up Jordan Silva to fire home, but it could not stop Raul “Potro” Gutierrez’s side from dropping their second game of the competition.

With the result, Mexico dropped down to the bottom of Group A of the 2016 Toulon Tournament, and next take on Mali on Sunday in their third game of the competition. Mexico also lost to hosts France in the opening game of the tournament on Wednesday.
