Giovani Dos Santos been hyped for so long that it seems almost strange that he's now actually playing on the Mexican national team, it seems a little unreal.
Dos Santos made his full national team debut on Sunday in what was a forgettable match, a 1-0 rain-soaked win over Panama in a match that was abandoned at halftime. Today's will likely be much more memorable as Mexico will play Brazil at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.
The LA Times' Jaime Cardenas wrote a feature on Gio. Jaime and I have been wondering if Gio will make the trip to Los Angeles for Mexico's game against China on Oct. 17. That would be nice if did but since it's just one game - as opposed to a pair within four days of each other - and it's quite a long flight, we don't think he'll get called in then.
