Club Tijuana's magical run continued as the little squad that could defeated Corinthians 1-0 in Copa Libertadores group play. Joe Corona spent the entire match on the left side of midfield, while Greg Garza entered as a late-game sub. The Mexican side has nine points from three games and looks in good position to advance to the Round of 16. The plan for the future:
Tigres defeated the Seattle Sounders 1-0 in the first leg of the CONCACAF Champions League quarterfinals in a match that saw a number of United States national teamers. Jose Torres started for the Mexican club, while Eddie Johnson and Brad Evans were on the field for Seattle.
Rachel Buehlers, Shannon Boxx, and Abby Wambach scored as the United States women's national team defeated Iceland 3-0 in its first match of the Algarve Cup. Wambach now needs just four goals to tie Mia Hamm's international record.
A feature on Juan Agudelo? Sure. On his national team chances: “It’s definitely in the back of my head every time I play, but I just try to do what I can do with my club and everything with the national team will fall in to place if it’s meant to be. But I feel like whatever I do on the field (with Chivas USA) is going to be what will help me make the team.”
