[AMERICANS ABROAD]Texan Jose Francisco Torres scored the first goal for Pachuca in its 2-0 victory over Puebla, its first win in six games in the Mexican First Division's Torneo Apertura.

Fellow Texan Marco Antonio Vidalstarted in Indios Juarez's 1-0 victory at Santos for its first win since it's been promoted to the First Division.

Pachuca and Indios are fifth and sixth, respectively, in the six-team Group A.

New Mexico product Edgar Castillo, who was in the starting lineup for Santos in its 2-0 victory over UAG, was dropped by Mexico national team coach Sven Goran Eriksson for the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Jamaica and Canada.

Castillo, a left back, was in the Mexico squad that trained for its match against Honduras, a 2-1 victory, but did not suit up for the game.

The only other player not recalled was Argentine-born striker Guillermo Franco of Villarreal.

The only players with U.S. ties in the Mexico squad are Cuauhtemoc Blanco of the Chicago Fire and Carlos Ochoa of Monterrey, who played his high school and college ball in California.
