Striker Carlos Vela has won the CONCACAF Gold Cup after Mexico beat the United States 5-0 in the final.

It was goalless at half-time but from all accounts, Vela's introduction in the second half sparked some life into the Mexicans who then went on to score a devastating five goals without reply.

Vela scored one goal and provided two assists, an exciting contribution from the youngster who had only been on the pitch for a few minutes when he had an effort cleared off the line.

He had another shot saved before finally slotting home his goal, a delightful chip over the onrushing American keeper, and then turning provider with an exquisite through ball for team mate Castro to score.

Whilst Vela is still coming through the ranks at the club, it would seem that our little Mexican prodigy is ready for some first team action!
