Brazil Vs. Mexico, International Friendly: El Tri Leads 2-0 At Halftime

Mexico has shown excellent form in the first half versus Brazil in their international friendly at Cowboys Stadium, as a tricky and crafty shot by Giovani Dos Santos ended up in the upper right corner in the 22nd minute, along with a well-slotted penalty kick goal by "Chicharito" Javier Hernandez in the 33rd minute after Dos Santos was fouled in the box, have El Tri up 2-0 at halftime.

Brazil has possessed the ball for almost 70% of the time in the first half, but only two of their eight shots were able to land on goal, of which Jose de Jesus Corona was up to the task in making the save. Mexico has capitalized when they've put the goal on net, which most notably, was Dos Santos' goal.

Dos Santos received the ball on the left side, attacked the Brazilian defender with a strong deke right, then placed a chip shot right over the goalie and into the upper 90 of the net. You will see plenty of highlights of this all evening.

The second half will start shortly, as we'll find out if Brazil can make a comeback in Dallas.
