VIDEO: Spectacular Giovani Dos Santos Goal Makes It 4-2 Mexico In Gold Cup Final

Here's how to kill off a game. Mexico turned nothing into a quite spectacular something when a ball being corralled in the corner by Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez rolled away to Gerardo Torrado and eventually found Giovani dos Santos in Tim Howard's penalty area. What happened next was truly extraordinary.

The big United States goalkeeper came rushing off his line to intercept, so dos Santos danced away, leaving the Everton man flopping like a fish out of water and scrambling to get back into position. Dos Santos drew back, looked up, and laid in an awesome little chipped shot that sailed over the head of Michael Bradley and dropped inch-perfect in the space between Eric Lichaj's leaping hair and the bottom of the crossbar at the far post. The goal made it 4-2 late on and sealed the victory for Mexico.

It was an astonishing finish, so naturally Howard threw a fit about it. Check it all out below:
