Second-half substitutes Jesus Corona and Juergen Damm scored to lead Mexico to a 2-0 win over Honduras on Tuesday in a World Cup qualifier at San Pedro Sula.

Mexico had not won a World Cup qualifier at Honduras since 1993 and had not won a qualifier at San Pedro Sula since 1965.

Corona scored in the 67th minute, six minutes after entering. Damm entered in the 70th minute and doubled the score two minutes later.

El Tri opened Friday at home with a 3-0 win over El Salvador.
