Iceland keep Mexicans at bay

Mexico 0-0 Iceland Disciplined defending in San Francisco keeps the scoresheet blank.

Mexico 0-0 Iceland
A solid defensive display earned Iceland a goalless draw against Mexico in a friendly international in San Francisco.

Campos farewell
The match was billed as a farewell for former Mexican international goalkeeper Jorge Campos, who was famous for wearing outrageous luminous kits. Campos appeared as a substitute in the 64th minute but played up front.

Near miss
Neither side was able to make the breakthrough during a largely lacklustre encounter, and the game ended scoreless in front of around 15,000 spectators at the San Francisco Giants stadium. Iceland finished third in UEFA EURO 2004™ qualifying Group 5, missing out on second position – and the play-offs – by a single point.
