Mexico Vs. Brazil, 2012 Olympics: El Tri Double Lead

Yeah I definitely wouldn't bet on a comeback now. Mexico are up 2-0 in the Olympic 2012 goal medal game, and there are only ten minutes to go. The culprit? More disastrous defending from Brazil, Marcelo conceded a needless foul near the corner flag, and for some halfwitted reason Hulk was the one marking Oribe Peralta on the free kick. That move worked about as well as you'd expect, with the Santos Laguna striker easily evading the Porto man's attentions and sending a bullet of a header past Gabriel to double El Tri's lead.

Brazil are trying to respond and have done decently off corners, but they're running out of time and need to score very soon to even have a chance of taking this match to extra time. Jesus Corona, however, is thwarting every attempt Brazil are throwing at him. It's not looking good for the Selecao, but Mexico have totally deserved their lead.
