GLENDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Henry Mart?n scored on a diving header 44 seconds into the second half, and Mexico beat Haiti 3-1 Thursday night to clinch a berth in the Concacaf Gold Cup quarterfinals.

Mart?n headed Uriel Antuna’s cross past goalkeeper Alexandre Pierre for his 11th international goal. Haiti’s Ricardo Ad? gave Mexico a 2-0 lead with an own goal in the 56th when he poked in Jes?s Gallardo’s cross for Orbel?n Pineda.

No. 87 Haiti scored their third goal in 11 matches against Mexico and first since 1981 when Danley Jean-Jacques evaded Johan V?squez and headed Derrick Etienne’s cross past Guillermo Ochoa in the 78th.

Santiago Gim?nez got his third international goal in the 83rd, poking in Antuna’s cross.

No. 14 Mexico, which opened with a 4-0 rout of Honduras, close Group B on Sunday against invited guest Qatar at Santa Clara, California. Haiti, which began with a 2-1 win over Qatar, play Honduras at Charlotte, North Carolina.
