By now, Mexico's offense was in full gear but the finishing was not there. I remember there were at least three missed opportunities in front of the goal. For a second I thought that the ghosts of the Tri were back to haunt them.
As I said earlier, "Not today".
Torrado made a great pass to Vela down the left flank, who had acres of space and took it into the box. Vela was unable to shoot but dished it to Sabah instead, however Sabah could only produce a weak shot that was easily blocked.
Luckily for Sabah, Giovani Dos Santos picked up the rebound in front of goal and put it away with his left foot.
This was a great tournament for Dos Santos and he was appropriately named the tournament MVP. In this particular game, his contributions were outstanding and he took his game to a new level. I expect that we'll be seeing more goals from Gio with El Tri.
