Playing With A Fractured Wrist, Raúl Jiménez Scores While Getting Kicked In The Face

Forgotten Promising MLS Youth Scores Late Winner For Tijuana

It's been a while since MLS fans have heard the name Erick "Cubo" Torres. Once the lone bright spot for failing Chivas USA, a 20-year-old Cubo Torres scored 22 goals in 44 appearances for the now-defunct club. He was hailed as one of the young guns that was going to make a huge impact in MLS and eventually with the Mexico national team.

Mexico’s Next Great Striker Is Reportedly On The Verge Of Moving To Europe

León striker José Juan Macías was the story of the 2019 Liga MX Clausura season after leading all Mexican goal scorers with eight in 14 appearances. That he accomplished it at the age of 19 while on loan after being cast off by Chivas only strengthened the narrative.

Carlos Vela Scores One Of The Most Demeaning Goals In MLS History

LAFC moved one step closer to securing the top seed in the Western Conference — and the MLS Supporters’ Shield — following a 4-0 beatdown of rivals San Jose on Wednesday night at Banc of California Stadium in Los Angeles. Diego Rossi opened the scoring in the sixth minute, Carlos Vela registered a brace by the 41st and Joshua Pérez put the finishing touches on an emphatic victory.

Vela’s first arrived from the penalty spot in the 17th, but it’s his outrageous solo goal in the 41st-minute that could have a shout at the MLS Goal of the Year Award.

But who is the most expensive Mexican soccer player in today’s world of wheeling, dealing and making a killing in the oil field? Here are the 25 most expensive Mexican transfer fees ever.

Mexico Youth Player Cracks One From Behind The Halfway Line

Last night in Lima, Peru, Honduras upset Mexico after a penalty shootout to advance to the final of the 2019 Pan American Games. It’s a largely meaningless U-22 competition with understrength youth teams, so the Mexican Football Federation won’t be overly bothered by the result, but manager Jaime Lozano will be irked that his side couldn’t hold on to a 1-0 lead with just over 10 minutes remaining.

Especially since that 1-0 lead was built on one of the finest goals of the summer.

Club América Signs Next Piece On Quest To Recreate Mexico’s 2014 World Cup Squad
