MOST COMMENTED

[AMERICANS ABROAD] With U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann on hand, Edgar Castillo and Joe Corona started for Tijuana in its 0-0 tie with Brazilian club Palmeiras in the first leg of their Copa Libertadores round-of-16 series.

The Xolos have not allowed a goal at home in their first Copa Libertadores campaign, but they could not take advantage of their 17-7 edge in shots.

Keeper Bruno made several good saves on Fernando Arce and Richard Ruiz to hold off Tijuana.

Tijuana, which qualified as the 2012 Liga MX Torneo Apertura champion, is the only Mexican club left in the competition. It has placed its entire emphasis on its Copa Libertadores season, suffering and an epic collapse in the 2013 Liga MX Torneo Clausura, where it is winless in 12 straight games after opening with four wins. The Palmeiras game was the first for Castillo and Corona after they were both red-carded in Liga MX action two weekends ago.

The second leg will be held in two weeks in Brazil.

    Question: How many previous USMNT coaches have attended a Copa Libertadores game to scout MNT players???
