Gomez strikes again -- twice

[AMERICANS ABROAD] Herculez Gomez scored twice in the first half Sunday in Puebla's 4-1 win over Cruz Azul and moved into a tie for first place on the Mexican First Division scoring charts with 10 goals for the season.

Unfortunately, Gomez was red-carded late in the game and will miss Puebla's season finale.

Gomez has scored 10 goals in 14 games for Puebla since arriving in January from MLS's Kansas City Wizards.

What makes Gomez's production so amazing is that he has only started seven games. Four of his goals came as a sub.

He is joined by Peruvian Johan Fano of Atlante and young Mexican star Javier Hernandez, who has led the charts since the beginning of the season but whose campaign at Guadalajara is over. He has entered Mexico's full-time national team camp in preparation for the World Cup.
