[AMERICANS ABROAD] U.S. under-18 national team winger Paul Arriola scored in his Tijuana debut, giving the Xolos a 5-0 lead over Club America in a match it eventually won, 5-2, Saturday night before 28,759 fans at San Diego’s Petco Park.

Arriola, who hails from nearby Chula Vista, played for the LA Galaxy's academy team before signing with Tijuana in the spring and foregoing a scholarship to UCLA.

He came on as a sub against America and scored on a long-range shot in the 54th minute.

Fellow American Greg Garza started for Tijuana, which was missing U.S. national team players Joe Corona, Edgar Castillo and Herculez Gomez.

    I wonder how long it would have taken him to get his 1st Pro debut with Galaxy had he stayed with them. It seems he made the right choice. Better pay and play pro right away.
