EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Aldo de Nigris scored a goal late in each half and Mexico beat Wales 2-0 on Sunday in an international friendly.

De Nigris put Mexico ahead with a header, and the Monterrey striker sealed it in the 89th by converting a pass from Edgar Andrade.

A crowd of over 35,000 saw Mexico open a three-match tour that includes games against Bosnia-Herzegovina in Chicago on Thursday and Brazil next Sunday in Arlington, Texas.

Mexico will host Guyana in a World Cup qualifier on June 8. Wales plays its first qualifier for the 2014 World Cup by hosting Belgium in September.
