Mexico has continued with the fine form they displayed at the World Cup last year, by winning the CONCACAF Gold Cup this summer.
Their style of play is quick penetrating football, very exciting to watch! Giovani Dos Santos was Man-of-the-Match, in their final game vs. USA. He capped a brilliant tournament with a jaw-dropping goal, the kind of goal that you only see from a Lionel Messi or Zidane.
Poor Tim Howard was left pounding his fists on the ground. Who is Giovani Dos Santos? You might ask - because Harry Redknapp has not selected the young international for Tottenham Hotspur. No, Giovani has been sent out on loan three times, since arriving at White Hart Lane, in 2008. He has played in all of 10 matches for Spurs.
The only criticism that I recall from Redknapp: that Giovani was spending too much time out, at the clubs, arriving late for training. Certainly this is something that can be remedied? I mean, to play regularly as a starter for your country, one must have a certain level of maturity??
My fear is that many clubs, having witnessed the recent Mexico performance, will be making offers for Dos Santos. He is young and supremely gifted. I would love to see him stay at Spurs - and given a proper chance to break into our starting XI.
Surely, he would be an awesome 'impact sub' with his blazing speed and finesse. I can still remember the pre-season under Ramos, when our squad was firing on all cylinders - playing the kind of football that originally attracted me to Spurs. And Dos Santos was one of the shining stand-out players in those matches.
