In the most important match of my trip, México faced off against tournament favorite and defending world champion Germany.
As usual, Mexican fans outnumbered rival fans 3 to 1. But nobody predicted the World Cup history we were about to witness.
Excellent game played by the Tri. I’m so glad I was there.
If you thought that Dos Santos’ goal in the Gold Cup final was insane, you should check out last night’s results in the U-17 World Cup semifinal.
When Mexico tied the game 2-2 with an olympic goal, Julio Gómez left the field with a 7-inch cut in the head. He came back ten minutes later to score the last minute winning goal against Germany… with a bicycle kick. You can’t make this stuff up, it’s like a movie.
Will we have a 2005 repeat? I sure hope so. All goals below.
