[AMERICANS ABROAD] Both Americans, Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona, scored as Mexican champion Tijuana won its first home game ever in the Libertadores Cup with a 4-0 win over Bolivia's San Jose. Castillo scored four minutes into the game with a left-footed blast from just inside the area and Corona scored four minutes into the second half.

The win gave Tijuana two wins in two games in its first appearance in the South American championship.

Castillo, whose cross had set up the winning goal in the opening win over Millonarios, played a one-two with Alfredo Moreno before taking his teammate's back heel and slotting it past goalie Carlos Lampe.

Castillo was also involved in Corona's goal, pushing the ball forward to Fidel Martinez, whose ball into the area was put away by Corona.

Next up for the Xolos is a home game against defending champion Corinthians March 6 at the Estadio Caliente.
