    Dos Santos to miss Olympic final

    LONDON - Midfielder Giovani Dos Santos will miss Mexico's Olympic gold medal clash with Brazil on Saturday because of a torn muscle in his right leg, the Mexican football federation said on its website.

    Dos Santos, who has three goals in the Olympics, apparently injured the leg during Mexico's 3-1 victory over Japan in the semifinals. He started the match but was replaced at halftime by Raul Jimenez.

    The federation said an MRI revealed the injury and that 23-year-old Dos Santos, who plays for Tottenham in the English Premier League, would be out 14 days.

    Dos Santos scored both goals in a 2-0 first-round victory over Gabon and had one of two goals in extra time against Senegal in a 4-2 win in the quarterfinals.
