[MEXICO] After scoring the winner for Monterrey in its 1-0 win over Club America in the first leg of the Torneo Apertura quarterfinals, Aldo De Nigris dedicated the goal to his brother Antonio, who died of a heart attack at the age of 31 in Greece on Monday.

"I don't just dedicate this goal to him," Aldo de Nigris said, "I'm going to dedicate my whole life to him because he was an example to everyone."

A capacity crowd of 35,000 at Tecnologico Stadium waved white handkerchiefs and chanted Antonio De Nigris' name.

The Archbishop of Monterrey led a midday mass attended by about 15,000 people at the stadium.

De Negris had begun his career at Monterrey and then played for America before moving on to teams in Spain, Colombia, Brazil, Turkey and Greece.

In other playoff games, San Luis edged Toluca, 1-0, Santos beat Morelia, 2-1, and Cruz Azul and Puebla played to a 4-4 tie.
