Giovani Dos Santos did the impossible at the World Cup: He scored a goal for Mexico every bit as impressive as the sideline celebration of the team's coach.
With Mexico and the Netherlands scoreless in the early minutes of the second half of a Round of 16 clash at Estadio Castelao in Fortaleza on Saturday, Dos Santos conjured an impressive opening goal. The 25-year-old forward entrusted with Mexico's No. 10 shirt, managed to get off a blistering left-footed shot while surrounded by a trio of Dutch defenders outside of the penalty area. The low drive beat diving Dutch goalkeeper Jasper Cillessen to the corner near his left post and gave Mexico a 1-0 lead.
Giovani Dos Santos, the goalscorer, is replaced.

On the sideline, Mexico coach Miguel Herrera did what he does so well: He went wild.
