Less than a week after the death of his father, Erick Torres took to the field and helped the Houston Dynamo score a vital 2-1 win over Sporting Kansas City on Wednesday night in Houston. The victory pushed the Dynamo four points ahead of seventh-place Real Salt Lake and San Jose with two matches to play as teams vie for the six playoff berths from the MLS Western Conference.
Mexican Players Abroad
Miguel Layun scored his first goal of the season Tuesday, putting the finishing touches on Porto's 3-0 win over Monaco.
Jesus "Tecatito" Corona and Hector Herrera were involved in the buildup, although said buildup wasn't exactly pretty.
The Los Angeles Galaxy’s abysmal season took another turn for the worse with Giovani dos Santos publicly turning on his teammates following a heavy defeat to Atlanta United on Wednesday. Like the rest of the Galaxy, Dos Santos has seen his numbers fall dramatically this season. After scoring 14 goals in 2016, Dos Santos has only registered six this campaign and the Mexican international knows where the blame lies.
Amid strong interest from clubs in Major League Soccer, it was with a view towards the 2018 World Cup that Andres Guardado decided to join Real Betis and continue pushing himself at the highest level in La Liga. After three starts for the Seville-based club, it’s apparent that the 30-year-old made the right decision. This is obviously his level.
We soccer fans often forget there’s more to life than just the beautiful game. So, please note: this weekend the movie "IT," inspired by Stephen King's eponymous novel, is in theaters. Remember Pennywise, that demonic clown that made us wet our pants as children in the nineties? Well, IT is back.
As it turns out, there's something even more terrifying than IT lurking around soccer fields.
Hirving Lozano is making a quick impact with his new team in a new league. On Wednesday the PSV Eindhoven attacker was named Eredivisie Player of the Month, a good end to a week that saw Lozano score the goal that sent Mexico to the World Cup.
Mexico international goalkeeper Memo Ochoa bailed out his Standard Liege defense with an incredible triple save Sunday.
Ochoa faces down an attacker one on one and forces the ball wide, ultimately dispossessing the attacking player.

Jesus "Tecatito" Corona scored his first goal of the season Sunday when he capped off a great team move for Porto against Braga.
You can see the move gets a little wobbly near the end, but they manage to get the cross in and Tecatito's finish was brilliant.
Hirving "Chucky" Lozano continues to prove he is having no trouble adapting to European football. The 22-year-old former Pachuca winger made it three goals in his first three Eredivisie matches with a tap-in against Roda JC Sunday.
If Lozano continues to play like this, he will be a lock for Russia 2018, and Juan Carlos Osorio will be hard-pressed to keep him out of the starting lineup.
Mexican international Hirving “Chucky” Lozano is off to a blistering start in his European adventure with PSV Eindhoven in the Dutch Eredivisie. The 22-year-old winger endeared himself to PSV supporters two weeks ago by scoring in his league debut against AZ Alkmaar in front of home supporters. He was given a standing ovation upon being subbed off, and he was subsequently named PSV’s Man of the Match.
