The Yellow striker played a key role in Mexico’s fisrt match in the World Cup.
Villarreal CF player Giovani dos Santos had a magnificent performance in the opening game of Mexico in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, which ended up in a win 1-0 against Cameroon. Essential in the offensive game of the ‘Tri’, our Yellow striker played the 90 minutes of the game and was a key determinant player for his team, but could not score his first goal in a World Cup. Gio did ripple the net in the tenth minute, volleying home Hector Herrera’s right-wing cross, but the linesman’s flag maintained the deadlock. Minutes later, following a corner, Dos Santos fired home a loose ball, only to see it ruled out once again, althouht it was a legal goal.
