[VIDEO PICK: Golazo] In May, Mexican club Club Deportivo Estudiantes Tecos de la UAG moved from Guadalajara to Zacatecas and became Mineros de Zacatecas. In their first home game, the Miners scored four seconds after kickoff.

UAG Tecos -- the Owls -- was founded in 1935 and won a Mexican title in 1994.

The club’s coaches have included former USA coach Bora Milutinovic, Mexico’s 2014 World Cup coach Miguel Herrera, and Cesar Luis Menotti, who guided Argentina to the 1978 World Cup title.

But Tecos fell on hard times, were relegated to the second division, and this year became Mineros de Zacatecas.

The new era started off as well as possible with this goal by Paraguayan Gustavo Ramirez -- the first in a 2-0 win over Necaxa -- during its first game in its new stadium, Estadio Francisco Villa.
