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.

On Sunday, Lozano was given another start as PSV traveled to play NAC Breda. Lozano was even better in his second league appearance, scoring a spectacular goal, providing an assist from a corner and receiving another ovation from the away support after being subbed off in the 90th minute of a 4-1 victory.
Lozano’s assist for Marco van Ginkel in the 60th minute gave PSV a 2-1 advantage.
Nine minutes later, Lozano added one of his own to put PSV up 3-1.

Lozano’s individual brilliance was recognized by WhoScored.com today, and he was named in the website’s Eredivisie Team of the Week.
Chucky appears to have already secured his place as a starter on the left-hand side of PSV’s attack, and he’ll look to build on his fantastic start to life in Europe against Roda on Sunday.
