Mexico defeat Gambia in U-20 World Cup

Mexico looked impressive in a 3-0 victory over Gambia in their opening U-20 World Cup game last night.

With a group of attacking players seemingly content in any of the forward positions, Mexico's interplay was a joy to watch at times, with Barcelona youngster Giovanni Dos Santos their standout player, despite Carlos Vela's haircut trying to steal the show.

A spectacular left footed half-volley from Dos Santos gave Mexico the lead, with goals from Hector Moreno and Javier Hernandez sealing the victory.

After such a performance, Mexico will surely now be one of the main favourites to win the tournament outright.
