Oribe Peralta scored just 29 seconds into the Olympic final and added another goal in the second half to help Mexico stun Brazil, 2-1, Saturday at Wembley and win its first gold in men's soccer. Peralta took advantage of a mistake by the Brazilian defense in the game's opening minute and slotted a low right-foot shot into the net. It was the fastest Olympic goal in at least 36 years, since FIFA began keeping record of the competition. The striker added the second with a firm header from a free kick in the 75th.

What is Jesse Helms trying to prove? Everyone knows by now that Sen. Helms (R., N.C.) operates according to his own foreign policy agenda in the Senate. Past hijinks - like inviting a Salvadoran death squad leader to Congress or holding key Defense and State Department appointees hostage to his demands - showed a man bent on pushing his ideology, not promoting U.S. interests. But his current vendetta against Mexico - which he's waging in public Senate hearings as chairman of the Foreign Relations subcommittee on the Western Hemisphere - has surpassed the bounds of legislative inquiry or dissent.

During his time as U.S. national team coach, from 1991 to 1995, Bora Milutinovic had the reputation of being regarded nearly as a saint in Mexico, which he coached to the quarterfinals of the 1986 World Cup. Now, with Milutinovic back in charge of the Mexican national team, that sainthood is wearing thin. Mexico, like the United States, is playing in a semifinal-round group this fall of the CONCACAF section of World Cup qualifying. It was expected to have a fairly easy time advancing to next year's CONCACAF final round, but it hasn't worked out that way. Halfway through this fall's competition, Mexico is involved in a frantic three-way race with Jamaica and Honduras for two places in next year's competition.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - Ben Askelson hit a high 0-1 curveball onto the hill beyond the left-field fence to send the boys from Billings, Mont., into the U.S. final of the Little League World Series with a 1-0, seven-inning victory over Huntington Beach, Calif., on Wednesday night. Montana gets to rest up until the U.S. championship game Saturday, while California must face Clinton County, Pa., on Thursday night. Both teams had chances to prevent the game from going into extra innings.

PHOENIX - The weeklong detention of an American woman after Mexican authorities said they found 12 pounds of marijuana under her bus seat illustrates just one of the perils Americans face while traveling in Mexico. Yanira Maldonado, 42, walked out of a prison on the outskirts of Nogales, Mexico, and into her husband's arms late Thursday after a judge dismissed drug-smuggling charges against her. The judge determined Maldonado was no longer a suspect after viewing video that showed the couple climbing onto the bus with just a purse, blankets, and bottles of water.

What is it with Mexico lately? When did it hire David Duke as an image consultant? I can't imagine what else might explain that nation's recent blundering into not just one but two racially charged controversies. The first, of course, was President Vicente Fox's remark in May that Mexican immigrants in the United States take work "not even blacks" are willing to do. Fox's comment outraged many in this country and bestirred the readily bestirrable Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson to go down and show him the error of his ways.

The government of Mexico and the International Monetary Fund have agreed on a new economic plan that will lead to $1.5 billion in new loans from the IMF over the next 18 months, officials said yesterday. The agreement, reached after weeks of negotiations, was to be formalized today in a ceremony at the Mexican Embassy in Washington, according to Embassy spokesman Leonardo Ffrench. Commercial bankers have regarded an agreement between Mexico and the IMF as a necessity before they will enter full-scale negotiations over new lending to Mexico.

With dozens of people believed buried alive in mudslides, rescue workers struggled yesterday to reach remote towns in southern and central Mexico, where flooding brought on by more than a week of rain has killed at least 140 people. Government officials said the death toll was certain to rise as reports come in from towns now cut off from the outside world. Flooding sent rivers roaring over their banks across the southern and central half of Mexico. More than 157,000 people have been forced from their homes.

Japan, everybody's favorite whipping boy, has a new competitor: Mexico. Washington policy-makers make headlines alleging Mexican government involvement in drug trafficking. Conservatives in the United States bemoan Mexico's coziness with Cuba and Nicaragua and castigate Mexico's penchant for anti-U.S. rhetoric. Liberals in the United States describe Mexico's one-party political system as disguised authoritarianism and lament its use of fraud and force to retain power. Businessmen and bankers criticize Mexico's economic disarray.

Lawmakers who voted last week to give President Bush authority to negotiate a free-trade agreement with Mexico look fondly on a southern neighbor that has privatized industry, opened doors to U.S. investors and improved relations with Washington. Critics see another side: an authoritarian nation haunted by corruption and endemic torture and in the grip of a party that routinely resorts to electoral fraud. "We are for the first time being asked to consider a free-trade agreement with a country that is not free," Sen. Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D., N.Y.)

PERHAPS THE least recognized part of the CONCACAF moniker is that the third "C" stands for Caribbean. Despite having 31 associations in CONCACAF, Caribbean teams have played in the shadow of their North and Central American confederation mates - especially Mexico and the United States. Only four Caribbean nations - Cuba, Haiti, Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago - have ever qualified for a World Cup, and none has qualified more than once. Haiti, in 1973, is the only Caribbean nation to win a CONCACAF championship - nearly two decades before the Gold Cup Tournament format was created.

Corruption scandals off the field, refereeing fiascos in both the quarterfinals and semis, all that already had given this CONCACAF Gold Cup its unsavory flavor. Until Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field. In the final, it was all about the soccer. After taking advantage of the events that got its national team to the Linc, Mexico displayed its virtuosity, burying a beautiful first-half volley, then finding the net again immediately after halftime. A third Mexican goal came in the 61st minute, when a blunder by a Jamaican defender had put the ball on a tee. This time, bad officiating had nothing to do with Mexico's victory, the final a decisive 3-1. The crowd of 68,930 was announced as the largest to see a soccer game in Philadelphia.

CONCACAF is always a circus, and it's in town. Unless the image is somehow topped over the weekend, the enduring one of the 2015 Gold Cup will be a makeshift sign held up in Panama's lockerroom by its national team players after Wednesday's semifinal game. Certainly in the view of Panama's players - and much of the viewership all over the continent - that game in Atlanta had been snatched away from them in the final minutes with a couple of penalty kicks awarded to Mexico. The largest words on the sign: CONCACAF Ladrones . Translation: Thieves.

On the heels of a diplomacy trip to Mexico, Mayor Nutter on Thursday scolded presidential candidate Donald Trump, saying the billionaire's recent comments about immigrants from that country were an attempt to "generate more money - which is kind of currently what he is all about. " "I've met him once. I don't know him. I mean, he's a TV character," Nutter said Thursday, speaking with reporters at City Hall a few hours after returning from a three-day trip to Puebla. "Whatever it is that he's talking about is vicious, it's negative, it's vile.

RAY BONINA couldn't even walk on a beach in Mexico without someone calling out, "Hey, Ray!" And probably adding, "Remember me?" "To Ray, strangers were simply friends he had not yet met," his family said. In fact, it was kind of a family joke that Ray Bonina couldn't go anywhere without running into someone he knew, from that beach in Mexico to a street in New York City or a restaurant in Chicago. "Hey, Ray, remember me?" Raymond Joseph Bonina, retired president of the Garrett Buchanan Paper Co., passionate ice-hockey fan, active alumnus of St. Joseph's University and devoted family man, died Saturday.

Hello there "Pizza cutter? Oven mitt? Who is this guy?" Ileana asked herself. Then she called her aircraft-part manufacturing company's new engineer, freshly arrived from the U.S., to tell him his belongings had arrived. "You know, we do have pizza cutters in Mexico," she couldn't resist adding. Daniel, who is from Cherry Hill, had no response for Ileana, who worked in logistics. He had been working in their company's Cleveland office when he was offered the position in Merida, a city on the Yucatan Peninsula, in fall 2011.

When a 22-year-old woman was brutally beaten and raped just steps from Philadelphia Police Headquarters in 2010, detectives learned the name of her alleged attacker within days. Startled by police sirens, the man fled the scene of the rape on the 200 block of North Eighth Street in only his underwear and a shirt - leaving behind enough evidence for police to quickly identify him as Alberto Issac Navarrete Suarez, lately of South Philadelphia. But by then, police say, Suarez was already on the run. The 37-year-old fled to West Virginia and then Texas, where he managed to elude law enforcement and escape to Mexico.

THE SO-CALLED Pantless Rapist - a fugitive wanted in two 2010 rapes, including one just across the street from Philadelphia police headquarters - has been returned to Philly to face criminal charges, the FBI and Philadelphia police said yesterday. Alberto Issac Navarrete Suarez, 37, was wanted for allegedly raping, beating and choking a 22-year-old woman Aug. 29, 2010, as she waited at a bus stop outside police headquarters at 8th and Race streets. He also was wanted in the alleged March 21, 2010, kidnapping, rape and robbery of a teenage girl in Pittsburgh.
