MIAMI (AP) -- Radamel Falcao and Juan Cuadrado scored as Colombia defeated Mexico 2-0 in new Colombia coach Jose Pekerman's debut Wednesday night.
The exhibition attracted 51,615 fans, the second largest crowd for a soccer match in Sun Life Stadium history.
Falcao gave Colombia a 1-0 lead in the 37th minute. Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa deflected but failed to clear Dorlan Pabon's shot from the right wing. Falcao retrieved the loose ball and tapped in a shot from inside the 6-yard box.
Cuadrado's goal in the 59th minute put Mexico in a deeper hole. James Rodriguez sent a pass to Pablo Armero toward the left wing. Armero dribbled toward the penalty area and sent a centering pass to Cuadrado near the far post, where he converted on from 10 yards.
Pekerman, a former Argentina national team coach, took over Colombia's squad in January, replacing Leonel Alvarez.
