Mexico Vs. Brazil, 2012 Olympics: Brazil Attack In Numbers, But Still 1-0 Down

Yep, Brazil are definitely getting back into this match. First, Oscar and Marcelo combine down the left to completely eviscerate the Mexico defence. Some beautiful play from the Real Madrid man, combined from intelligent running by the midfielder, means that the entire right side of El Tri's back line is bypassed. Oscar ends up in acres of space and tries to pick out Neymar with a cutback, and if not for a vital intervention from a flying green shirt, would have done just that.

Hulk then got into the action with a stunning 35 yard effort which was hit so hard it nearly beat Jesus Corona at his near post -- that was absolutely scorched -- before Leandro Damiao and Marcelo played a neat interchange in Mexico's penalty box only for the latter to blast well wide. He should have tested the goalkeeper there. It remains 1-0, but there are positive signs for Brazil. Can Mexico hold on?
