Tottenham forward Giovani Dos Santos claims a brace (Arsenal’s Carlos Vela scored too) in Mexico’s win over Venezuela (video)

Mexico 4 – Venezuela 0 (International friendly, June 24, 2009) El Tri coach Javier Aguirre tried out a number of players ahead of some crucial World Cup qualifiers in August and it was Spurs forward Giovani Dos Santos who came to the fore with a terrific performance. He set up Arsenal forward Carlos Vela to bundle home the opener and then took center stage at the start of the second half. Dos Santos cut in and finished with his left foot on 48 minutes and three minutes later a surging run ended with the ball ricocheting off the Venezuela keeper and on to Dos Santos for his second. (Both Dos Santos goals can be seen on this video.) Omar Arellano completed the win in the 73rd minute.
