[AMERICANA ABROAD] Edgar Castillo set up Richard Ruiz for the lone goal as Mexican champion Tijuana beat Millonarios, 1-0, in Bogota in the Libertadores Cup opener for both teams. Joe Corona also started and played 67 minutes for the Xolos, who had never played in the South American club competition.

Castillo, whose distribution was excellent all game, sent a cross into the area, where Ruiz was free on the far side. The Mexican fired a bullet that gave Millonarios goalie Luis Delgado no chance for the lone goal in the 61st minute.

Daniel Marquez had scored for the Xolos minutes earlier, but the goal was wrongly called back for offside.

Former Seattle Sounders star Fredy Montero headed the Millonarios attack. The Colombian club finished with a 16-4 edge in shots but never looked like scoring after it fell behind.

A second former MLS player, Jorge Perlaza (Portland and Philadelphia), came on for Millonarios in the 63rd minute.

-- Three days after making his league debut for Club America, 20-year-old Arizona native Ventura Alvarado scored his first goal for the Aguilas in their 3-1 win over second division Necaxa in the Copa MX.
