Suso took a step closer to FIFA U20 World Cup glory on Tuesday night after a late strike from Jese helped Spain come from behind and beat Mexico 2-1 in the round of 16.

Spain, one of the firm favourites to win the tournament out in Turkey, qualified comfortably from the group stages by winning all three of their games.

However, with Suso named amongst the substitutes, Mexico flew out of the blocks to seize the initiative after just two minutes of play in Tuesday's game, as Arturo Gonzalez fired them ahead.

Suso was introduced after the interval - and with just over 15 minutes remaining in the match, the Reds' No.30 delivered a corner which found its way to Derik, who levelled the scores from point-blank range.

Then, with seconds of normal time remaining, Real Madrid's Jese picked up possession, weaved his way along the edge of the Mexico penalty area and unleashed a strike on goal, which was deflected beyond Richard Sanchez for 2-1.

The Spaniards will now progress to the quarter-finals of the competition, which will take place this weekend.
