Mexico secured the Gold Cup this weekend with a victory over the USA, it was not quite as easy as the 4-0 victory the Mexicans achieved last time these two played. The Americans where 2-0 up within 22 minutes but Mexico turned the tide and scored 4 goals in reply, none of which, unbelievably, where scored by Javier Hernandez.
A fantastic goal was scored however by Spurs forgotten man Gio Dos Santos, controlling the ball in a packed area of defenders drawing out Tim Howard and chipping the ball over Eric Lichaj’s despairing header. Check out the goal here, top marks son!
Bet Harry’s rubbing his hands together at the thought bit of extra cash onto Santos’ value and would you believe it there’s been plenty of talk of Seville wanting to end Santos Spurs nightmare already today. Harry wants 6.5 Million I reckon he will be lucky to get over 5 even after this wonder goal. Back to the game though and Mexico deserve all the credit they get especially after losing a good number (5 to be precise) of their squad to the tainted meat/drug scandal.
Many of commented on how the USA are a shell of the team they where a couple of years ago but they still have some quality players in there so well done Mexico!
