Unbelievable Week For Mexican Players In Europe: Goals, Assists And Trophies
Get the best email in soccer.
Mexico's stars abroad are shining bright after an extraordinary week in European leagues.
With four goals, two assists and one title won over the weekend, Mexican fans can dream big going into the international break.
And so we thought it was worth compiling the best images and moments for Mexican players in Europe.
To begin with, Hirving "Chucky" Lozano scored once again in the Eredivisie. Chucky scored his 13th league goal for PSV in their 3-0 victory against Venio.
Lozano is tied in second place behind Fran Sol in the Eredivisie's top scorer table.

"El Chucky" llegó a 14 tantos en la actual temporada y sigue como líder de goleo individual junto a Fran Sol. pic.twitter.com/9nPPZyWJUO— José Juan Vázquez (@jjangelv) 19 de marzo de 2018
Raúl Jiménez came on as a sub in Benfica's 2-0 victory against Feirense.
The former Club América star has struggled to secure a spot in the starting eleven at Benfica, but coming on as a sub he has proved he has the potential to seize the chances he's given.
Jiménez also provided an assist in the game.

Also in Portugal, Héctor Herrera scored in Porto's 3-0 victory against Boavista.
After a failed clearance by the goalkeeper, Herrera got hold of the ball and headed straight to goal.
The keeper had absolutely no chance.

In La Liga, Real Betis and Andrés Guardado had an excellent performance against Espanyol.
'Los Periquitos' managed to win the game 3-0 and Guardado provided an assist.
In Belgium, Guillermo Ochoa won his first European trophy as Standard Liege beat Genk 1-0 in the Belgian Cup final.
After suffering relegation when playing for Ajaccio in Ligue 1, failing to secure a spot in the starting eleven at Malaga and then facing relegation again at Granada, it seems Memo Ochoa finally gets a reward for his hard work.

And finally, Miguel Layún scored his first goal for Sevilla in his team's defeat against Leganés.
Layún had recently been criticized for his performances but it seems like manager Vincenzo Montella trusts him and so the Mexican international will have more opportunities to prove his worth.
