Barely a minute after the restart Itandje was forced to block from Peralta as the Santos Laguna striker jumped on Dos Santos's smart dink.Mexico finally had the ball in the net, this time for good, after the hour, when Dos Santos saw his low drive parried by Itandje and into the path of Peralta, who drove home from 10 meters out to send the largely Mexican crowd of 39,216 into raptures.Coach Herrera replaced midfielder Andres Guardado with Marco Fabian and minutes later Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez came on in place of Peralta. Cameroon threatened in the final five minutes when Eto'o sent Benjamin Moukandjo through on the right but the Nancy midfielder's drive across goal was blocked by an alert Rodriguez.However, Mexico almost made it two at the death when Layun dispossessed a Cameroon defender to deliver for Hernandez, who volleyed just over.
