Henry Martin, the most underrated striker in Liga MX?

Club America captured their first win of the Clausura 2020 against Tigres at home and It is due to one of the most underrated players in Liga MX Henry Martin.

Las Aguilas de America welcome at home at the Estadio Azteca, in their debut of the Clausura 2020 to one of the most notable club teams in the recent decade, Tigres, where the game was balanced up until the 69th minute. Forward, Henry Martin toe-poked the ball after a driven cross that was delivered by Giovani Dos Santos that gave America their first win of the tournament after so much debacle on how they would present themselves due to injuries and transfer of players with in the team. With the injuries of Renato Ibarra, Sebastian Cordova, Nicolas Benedetti and the return of the injured Andres Ibraguen, America looked steady enough to do the job at home. Also, the departure of the standout midfielder, Guido Rodriguez to Betis in Spain and Federico Vinas‘s absence due to the participation with his national team Uruguay for the CONMEBOL Pre Olympic tournament, so it a deja vu for Miguel Herrera situation as he confronted this in the Apertura 2019.

But with all the circumstances going on for America in the recent tournaments, Martin has made notable scores for America since joining the team in the Clausura 2018 (5th tournament with the team) and has been a factor as well. But only one problem is that the forward has not received constant opportunities with the heavy competition that comes in or due to slight injuries he intakes. In well over 88 games Martin has disputed with America, he has registered a total of 30 goals and 15 assists in a span of 5,000 minutes.

Sufficient number one can say!

Just recently, for the Clausura 2020, Martin he has been granted the starting position over Nico Castillo, which it should be recognized due to how the structure of the Liga MX operates, giving more time and confidence to foreign players in the league than Mexican players. But that is due to his total of 8 goals scored in the Apertura 2019 with America where they reached the finals losing to Rayados de Monterrey.

Is the talent there, of course, it is only a matter of time he becomes more recognizable in the Liga MX where the shadows of Andre-Pierre Gignac, Julio Furch or Rogelio Funes Mori make the most noise.
