Arsenal striker Carlos Vela & Spurs forward Gio Dos Santos star as Mexico thrash USA in the Gold Cup final (video)

Mexico 5 – USA 0 (Gold Cup final, July 25, 2009) (Longer highlights here.) The Mexicans won their first game on American soil since 1999 and perhaps boosted their World Cup qualification hopes with a resounding win with all the goals coming in the second half. Gerrardo Torrado claimed the first from the penalty spot, Giovani Dos Santos poked home the second after good work from Vela and the two combined again for the third with the Arsenal striker getting his name on the scoresheet. Jose Antonio Castro and Guillermo Franco completed the rout.
