Mexico defender Hector Moreno scores winning goal for PSV

The El Tri star used his body to put a deflected free kick in for a winner that helped the Dutch side hold on to third place in the Eredivisie.

PSV's Mexico duo came through for the Dutch side late in a 4-3 win Sunday over Heerenveen.

With the score knotted at 3-3 in stoppage time, Mexico midfielder Andres Guardado sent a free kick toward the box with his left foot. The ball deflected off a Heerenveen player's head but fell to El Tri center back Hector Moreno, who used his chest to deflect it past goalkeeper Erwin Mulder for the winning goal.

Moreno already had his name on the stat sheet, assisting Davy Propper's opener with a long ball over the top that Propper was able to head past Mulder.

The goal is Moreno's third of the campaign. The win strengthens PSV's hold on third place in the Eredivisie, with Heerenveen staying in fourth place.
