Here's Mexico's Goal To Squeak Past Cameroon

Mexico played Cameroon today in what was expected to be a fun, attacking match. Neither team disappointed.

Mexico were always the better side, and El Tri forward Giovani dos Santos had two goals called back in the first half that should've stood.


Dos Santos, however, was wreaking havoc against Cameroon's back four all game long, and in the 61st minute, he floated to a soft spot between the opposing center backs and received a pass that put him in on goal. He was on a breakaway, but Cameroon keeper Charles Itandje was able to stop dos Santos's shot. Itandje, however, couldn't hold onto the ball, and Mexican forward Oribe Peralta swept in the rebound.

Mexico held on to win 1-0, and now sit in second place behind Brazil in Group A
