Javier Hernandez and Edgar Pacheco scored second-half goals on Wednesday to give Mexico a 2-0 victory over Bosnia and Herzegovina in an international football friendly.

A crowd of more than 40,000 people at the Georgia Dome watched a goal-less first half but saw Hernandez strike in the 48th minute and Pacheco follow in the 55th to give Mexico the victory.

The victory made a triumphant launch to the career of Jose Manuel de la Torre, 44, as coach of the Mexican national squad.

De La Torre was named the new coach of Mexico's team last October, replacing Javier Aguirre, who gave up the post after guiding Mexico into the round of 16 before they were ousted by Argentina at last year's World Cup in South Africa.

The Tricolores have booked two more friendlies on US soil, the next March 26 at Oakland against Paraguay and the last against Venezuela on May 29 at San Diego.
