2:20pm Monday 4th June 2012 in Local Sport
Tottenham’s Giovani Dos Santos scored the first goal as Mexico claimed a famous 2-0 victory over Brazil in the USA.
In front of a crowd of almost 85,000 in Texas, the Mexicans ended their oppponents’ ten-match unbeaten run to gain a major boost ahead of this weekend’s World Cup qualifiers.
Dos Santos opened the scoring in the 23rd minute with a fine lob which surprised keeper Rafael.
The Spurs player was also a key figure in his side’s second, winning the penalty which Manchester United’s Javier Hernandez converted before the break.
Tottenham team-mate Sandro played the full 90 minutes for the Brazilians.
