Mexico Vs. Brazil, 2012 Olympics: More Chances For Mexico

Goodness me, it's just chance after chance for Mexico now. Oribe Peralta's got the ball into the back of the net, but he was clearly offside and the whistle was blown long before the shot went in. A few minutes later, Marco Fabian latched onto a corner with Gabriel already out of the picture, but with the open goal to aim for his header floated just over the crossbar. He's not had good luck with open goals today.

Brazil are trying to get back into the game, pulling off Sandro for AC Milan striker Alexandre Pato and going into what looks like a 4-2-4, but so far it hasn't done them any good, and that weak midfield might hurt them on the counterattack. There're only fifteen minutes for Mano Menezes' men to get back into this game, and right now it looks like El Tri on the front foot. Don't bet on a comeback now.
