Hey, the CONCACAF Champions League is on and Joe Corona is busy putting Club America ahead of Tauro FC. The midfielder connected with a bounding ball that Tauro failed to clear in the 19th minute to put Las Aguilas ahead 1-0.
That might have been a bit of a hopeful strike, but he absolutely lashed it into the back of the net. The 4th official seemed to like it almost as much as Miguel Herrera did.
Tauro dispatched FC Dallas to advance to the quarter final round of the tournament last week. Corona’s first goal for America has given his team the advantage for now, but with a looming trip to Panama City next week, they will look to hold onto their lead in Estadio Azteca this evening. Elsewhere in CCL, the NY Red Bulls will face off with Club Tijuana in Estadio Caliente later this evening, so yet more US players could be in line for finding the score sheet.
