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.

    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.
