Mexico scored a goal within 30s of the start of the game! Holy fuck. A nameless idiot Brasil defender held the ball for no reason then made a lazy pass that was stolen and passed ahead. Then Peralta hit a sweet shot to the near post to open the scoring. For most of the game Mexico sagged back and played a defensive counter attack style. With their best offensive player out (Giovanni Dos Santos, whose half Brazilian) I wasn’t mad. Neymar never got loose in the first half. They swarmed him at every touch. Brasil made a huge mistake in not playing the 55million dollar man Lucas. When he came in late, brasil’s attack instantly got more aggressive and they scored. The first half was mostly a bore. But the 2nd?! Brasil came out with a vengeance determined to score. Neymar started getting loose. Making moves, passes and taking shots only world class players are allowed to get away with. But alas Mexico’s defense held strong. They sagged back and crowded box on just about every effort by the Selecao. Hulk was being quite fancy and crafty with the rock but couldn’t close the deal. Even took an ambitious shot on a free kick. Then in the 75th minute, with Brasil’s offensive line up in, Mexico scored on a set piece. Peralta met a cross unmarked for his 2nd goal. Brasil pressed. Mexico BARELY missed a 3rd goal on spectacular half chilena on an open goal. Hit top post. Brasil pressed again with Pato and Lucas in. Hulk got a nice goal on a breakaway with his weak foot. Then on a cross in the final moments of extra time Oscar missed a WIDE OPEN header to seal the gold for Mexico. Great final.
¡Viva México! ¡Oro, putas! Te quiero, bestia.
