Way to be politically correct LB.

Giovani Dos Santos is a once in a lifetime player for Mexico.

The kid is unbelievable and Gio could already be one of the best players in the world, given that at age 18 he is shining with one of the deepest most talente Barcelona teams ever.

Gio can lead Nery, Vela, Rafa and co. to the promise land.
