So much for this being a friendly, eh? Marcelo is possibly fouled near the edge of the penalty area, but it's not given and Brazil are absolutely furious at the referee, surrounding him and generally making themselves look like complete turds. This game doesn't matter, boys. Chill the flip out. Astonishingly, nobody gets a yellow card - Marcelo, Neymar and Hulk probably all deserved a booking for that little display of bad manners.
That rather puts a sour note into the game which had actually just gotten pretty interesting, with Ronaldinho (depressingly, he's probably been Brazil's best attacking player despite being four hundred years old) forcing Oswaldo Sanchez into a flying save from a quickly taken free kick and the visitors generally being far more adventuresome. However, Mexico are sending in fouls left and right to break up attacks, which is probably why Brazil are so frustrated when they aren't called. Not that that excuses their rather deplorable behaviour, however. Perhaps they should focus on not shooting straight at Sanchez when they do have the ball? Still 1-0 Mexico, and that lead is still well deserved.
Latest from announcer: "Everyone loves Chicharito." This statement was incredibly enlightening, explaining as it did why the Manchester United striker had just wandered offside. I find myself hoping for some sort of flash-deafness.
