TEXAS (Sporting Alert) — Mexico scored twice in the first half to hand five time World Cup champions Brazil 2-0 in a friendly football international at the Cowboys Stadium in Texas on Sunday.
Giovani dos Santos continued to show Tottenham what they’ve been missing for not playing him with a superb sole strike in the 22nd minute.
The attacker burst down the left side before cutting inside and firing a shot over goalkeepr Rafael, which hit the post and went in.
Manchester United forward Javier Hernandez kept up his scoring form with another goal – this time from the penalty spot.
Hernandez, who scored the winner against Bosnia-Herzegovina on Thursday night was fouled and then got up to score the spot-kick in the 33rd minute.
