U.S. Abroad: More bad luck for Garza

Greg Garza, who missed most of last season with a hip injury, suffered more bad back in his second game back with Tijuana. He gave up an own goal in the fifth minute and then was subbed off in the 42nd minute with in Xolos' 3-2 loss at Puebla.

As Garza raced to clear away a ball played to the far post, the ball hit the post and he knocked the rebound into the goal. In the 41st minute, Garza was issued a yellow card and a minute later was replaced by Argentina Damian Perez and treated for what was suspected to be a concussion.

    I saw three own goals by the same player in the Santa Rosalia tournament played here in Brooklyn about 10 years ago. The coach said to him in frustration and we paid you to play for us. :)

    The worst own goal I saw was in 1996 the first Metrostar opening season game. Tony Meola was in goal. It was scored at the end of the game it was 0-0 when an Italian international player Caricola put it past Tony. Then I walk over to see the final four races at the race track and lose 4 thousand dollars to top it off. A great night of losses.

    How many minutes did he play with that possible concussion? Geez, that's scary. Of course, I remember watching NFL football years ago when a guy would "get his bell rung" and often kept playing. Now we know that just one concussion can cause irreversible damage to the brain. Hope Garza's okay.

    There are tests after an injury a medical trainer or doctor or a coach can give a player to see if he is alright. If he does not pass he is out. If he goes back in without those tests who ever let him back is a Amature. If he failed off he went to the hospital with an assistant coach.

    Plus game day we always had an ambulance Bravo around just in case.
