[AMERICANS ABROAD] Aron Johannsson scored two more goals -- the first with a lob of the keeper, the second following a nifty turn on the ball -- to give him 24 goals in all competitions this season for AZ and lead the Dutch club to a 4-0 win over Heracles. Jose Torres scored his first league goal since joining Tigres a year ago in its 3-0 win over previously unbeaten Liga MX leader Cruz Azul.

Two Californians made their Liga MX debut Friday night: Dennis Flores, 20, for Apertura champ Leon, and Alejandro Guido, 19, for Tijuana.

Tijuana, which plays the LA Galaxy in the Concacaf Champions League quarterfinals, started Americans Joe Corona and Greg Garza while Herculez Gomez and Guido came off the bench. Edgar Castillo, who usually starts at left back, was rested after playing for the USA against Ukraine on Wednesday.

DaMarcus Beasley and Michael Orozco were both carded in Puebla's loss to Toluca.

    Do we have any other player currently in the mix who could score a goal like Johannsson's 2nd. Time for him to be our featured forward.

    Johannsson is our best bet for striker in Brazil; Jozy may or may not find his form. Time to feature Aron in the friendlies.
