[MEXICO] Club America won its first league title since 2005 with a dramatic shootout win over Mexico City rival Cruz Azul before 100,000 fans Sunday night at
the Estadio Azteca. America was down 1-0 on the evening -- 2-0 on aggregate -- in the 89th minute when Colombian captain Aquivaldo Mosquera scored and
goalkeeper Moises Munoz came forward to score the equalizer on a diving header -- deflected off Cruz Azul's Alejandro
Castro -- off a corner kick in stoppage time.
The Eagles played the last 76 minutes of regulation and all of overtime with 10 men after Jesus Molina was red carded.
In the shootout, Munoz stopped Javier Orozco's first shot, and Castro then slipped and missed, dooming the Machina Cementera, which has not won a title in 15 years.
The title tied America for the Mexican record of 11 championships held by archrival Chivas de Guadalajara.
