Herculez Gomez got one step closer to assuring himself of receiving a call-up for the U.S. men's national team's friendly with Mexico later this month, scoring his second goal in the early parts of the Mexican Apertura on Friday night.
Gomez netted for the second time in the first three games of the season for Santos Laguna by thundering home a header on a drawn up set piece in the 15th minute of their match against DaMarcus Beasley and Puebla. Gomez's tally gave Santos an early 2-0 lead but unfortunately for them, Puebla rallied and earned a point with two second half strikes.
Here is Gomez's goal (starting at 1:16):
What do you think of Gomez's goal? How many times will he find the back of the net this year?
