Substitute leads Mexico to victory

BY foxsports • July 29, 2012

Substitute Giovani Dos Santos scored twice in the second half to give Mexico a 2-0 victory over Gabon on Sunday in the Olympic men's soccer tournament.

Dos Santos came on after the break and opened the scoring in the 63rd minute before converting a penalty in injury time at City of Coventry Stadium.

The win made Mexico the first team to win a game in Group B, after the group produced two tie games on the first day of competition. Mexico and South Korea, which beat Switzerland later Sunday, are tied atop the group standings.
