[AMERICANS ABROAD] In only its second season in Mexican soccer's elite, Tijuana is in the Liga MX's Torneo Apertura final. Americans Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona started for the Xolos, who overcame a two-goal deficit in the first leg to beat Leon, 3-0, and move into the final against Toluca.

Castillo went the distance at left back and received a yellow card late in the game, while Corona played the first 60 minutes before coming off at Estadio Caliente.

Ecuadoran Fidel Martinez put Tijuana ahead two minutes before the end of the first half, Colombian Duvier Riascos evened the series with a second goal in the 68th minute, and Mexican Richard Ruiz clinched the series win.

In the Fuerzas Basicas Sub-20 playoffs, American Ernest Nungaray had the winning goal as Morelia beat Santos, 2-1 to advance to the final against Monterrey with a 4-2 aggregate win.

Californians Benji Joya and Daniel Cuevas played for Santos.

Santos and Pachuca will play in the Fuerzas Basicas Sub-17 final.

    How many of these latinos are planning on playing for the USA? More importantly, are the scouts keeping an eye on them? The USA will not get better until we add flair and skill that they would bring. I look forward to the day we have an American style of soccer incorporating the latino flair and speed with what the team already does well - power and indomitable will.
