At long last, Jose Torres has his first goal with Tigres UANL.
Torres scored for the first time since joining Tigres in late 2012 in the club’s 3-2 Copa MX loss to Santos Laguna on Tuesday night. The veteran midfielder struck a beauty to spur a comeback attempt for Tigres, collecting a loose ball before dribbling forward and hitting a shot from around the edge of the penalty area into the top corner of the far post in the 41st minute.
Torres’ goal, while coming in a losing effort, will help his case as he looks to earn a call-up to the U.S. Men’s National Team’s final two World Cup qualifiers next month. Torres was with the Americans for this month’s 2-0 qualifying win over Mexico at Crew Stadium, but did not feature in the match.
Here is the goal (at the 1:05 mark):
What do you think of Torres’ goal? Think he should be called in for the U.S. Men’s National Team’s qualifiers next month?
