Mexico beats Brazil 2-0 at Copa America

 Surprising results continue to happen at the Copa America, this time Mexico won against Brazil 2-0.

Mexico beats Brazil 2-0 at Copa America Three days after losing to the United States in the CONCACAF Gold Cup final, in their Copa America group opener, Mexico squeezed a victory out of the world champion Brazil. This is the second straight time Mexico has beaten the five-time world champion at major soccer tournaments (Mexico defeated Brazil 1-0 in the first round of the 2005 Confederations Cup).

 Brazil, the defending champion of the Copa America, played poorly in the first half and suffered two goals in the space of five minutes. Nery Castillo scored on a solo effort in the 23rd minute when he took a pass from Juan Carlos Cacho and Ramon Morales doubled the lead with a 25-yard free kick in the 29th that froze Doni so much that the goalkeeper didn't even attempt to stop it.

 Attacks followed towards the Mexico's goal, but the performance of the goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa prevented Brazil from scoring even once. The Brazil coach Dunga commented after the game: "We've beaten them several times, but we knew going in it was a risky rival that has improved a great deal. The last 35 minutes we dominated the ball in the opponent's area, but the goals didn't come. Sunday’s match will be decisive. Now there’s nothing else left, we have to beat Chile”
