Mexico Vs. Brazil, 2011 International Friendly: Carlos Salcido Nearly Doubles El Tri Lead

So Neymar's still getting fouled, and even Chicharito is getting in on the action, cutting the teenager's legs out from under him and receiving a yellow card for his troubles. It's a minor miracle that the announcers haven't accused him of diving again - perhaps they've been warned that one more incident of blatant stupidity and/or bias will get them fired? Sadly not, because they're still talking.

Anyway, Chicharito takes a shot from range a little while later, which misses by a wide margin, but that's just the appetiser to Carlos Salcido's delicious man course, which misses by either one or two plank lengths (my eyes aren't that good), flashing just past Jefferson's left hand post with the keeper well beaten. Brazil, not surprisingly, are struggling with ten men, and with Lucas Moura off and Adriano on they don't look like they have much in the way of a cutting edge. Still 1-0 to the hosts in Torreon.
