    MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay – The Mexico under-17 national team prepared for its upcoming friendly against Argentina with a 1-0 win over Uruguay’s Fenix on Wednesday.

    It was the Tricolor’s second encounter of a seven-match South American tour.  On Monday, goals from Ricardo Marin and Kevin Magaña were not enough as the Mexicans fell 3-2 to Nacional.

    Against Fenix, Mexico was lifted by Magaña’s continued strong play.  Early on, he and Guadalajara teammare Kevin Ramirez menaced the host’s penalty area with their efforts down the wings.

    Ramirez scored the game’s only goal in the 28th minute, giving Mario Arteaga his first win as the squad’s head coach.

    Next up for Mexico is a Friday meeting with Argentina in Buenos Aires, the only national team it will face during the trip.
