To China's final game at the U-22 international football championship. The hosts managed a pair of draws in their opening two encounters with Uzbekistan and Vietnam, and were hoping to end the four-team tournament on a winning note as they battled Mexico in Wuhan.

China were hoping to give the home fans something to cheer about. And they do that, just 12 minutes into the match as Liu Yihong heads this cross in to give China the lead.

But Mexico equalize around the half-hour mark. Alberto fires it through the defender's legs, surprising the keeper to tie it at 1.

And when it looked like China would have to settle for another draw, Omar outmuscles the defender to the ball in the final minute and fires it home to give the Mexicans a 2-1 victory, and the tournament title. China finish bottom with two draws and one loss.
