Hirving Lozano Scored Again Because He Is A Monster

It's official: Chucky Lozano is scarier than Chucky the doll. The 22-year-old former Pachuca winger scored his 16th goal of the Eredivisie season Wednesday, a season in which PSV has already clinched the league title. Not bad for his first season in Europe.
