Mexican Players Abroad
Cuando uno sueña con un gol, generalmente es de chilena, pasándose a todos los rivales o clavándola al ángulo con una volea. Raramente, o más bien nunca, el sueño es un gol feo, uno que viene después de una ensalada de rebotes como el que el mexicano Hirving Chucky Lozano convirtió en la victoria 4-1 del Napoli en su visita a Cagliari.
Pero bueno, igual valen e igual se celebran.
Substitute Hirving Lozano scored one goal and created a second after coming on at halftime to inspire Napoli to a 2-1 win at home to Sampdoria in Serie A on Sunday.
Sampdoria, who are now six matches without a win, went ahead through Jakub Jankto in the 20th minute after he was sent clear by Valerio Verre's through ball.
Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raul Jimenez has been discharged from hospital following surgery on a fractured skull, the Premier League club said on Tuesday.
The loss of Raúl Jiménez has been a big blow to Wolverhampton Wanderers but manager Nuno Espírito Santo says they must find other ways to score in the absence of the injured Mexican striker.
Jiménez, 29, will be sidelined for the foreseeable future after he underwent surgery on a fractured skull. Without their top goalscorer and focal point of attack, Wolves rarely tested Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday, going down 4-0 at Anfield.
Wolverhampton Wanderers striker Raúl Jiménez had an operation on his fractured skull following a clash of heads with Arsenal defender David Luiz during Sunday's game, the Premier League club said on Monday.
The Mexican forward needed oxygen on the pitch before being taken off on a stretcher and rushed to hospital.
Sunday’s meeting between Arsenal and Wolves at the Emirates was brought to a halt in the fifth minute after an ugly clash of heads between David Luiz and Raúl Jiménez off a Willian corner kick.
Jiménez was stretchered off while receiving oxygen and replaced by Fábio Silva after coming off worse, whereas Luiz continued for Arsenal. Jiménez was then taken directly to a hospital.
Update: Jiménez is reportedly now conscious and responding to treatment.
Wolverhampton Wanderers' Pedro Neto came off the bench to cancel out a Theo Walcott strike for high-flying Southampton as the two sides battled to an entertaining 1-1 draw in their Premier League clash at the Molineux Stadium on Monday.
Mention Diego Lainez to USMNT supporters and they’ll immediately think of Matt Miazga’s relentless trolling of the diminutive winger back in September of 2018. What they won’t recall is that the then 18-year-old was the best player on the field in Nashville, form which he carried over into the Liga MX Apertura playoffs and a $14 million transfer to Real Betis.
The Mexican national team is living an excellent moment under the Argentinean coach Gerardo Martino. He has an excellent record of 18 victories, two draws and one defeat (against Argentina), 56 goals scored and 21 goals against. It is an unprecedented streak and Mexico seems to have finally found a coach of cycles who has stability over the years and can work and implement his soccer idea to the present and future generations of the national team.
