With Liga MX still waiting to resume play with Apertura 2020, we shift focus onto the Mexican playing in Europe, in a Mexicans abroad roundup.
After being thrown out of practice like the rebel he is and which article you can click on here. Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano was back like he never left scoring in the 90th minute crashing the second post after a corner kick that was provided was F. Ghoulam. Lozano was only brought on in the final minutes in the matchup that was Napoli vs. Verona (where Rafa Marquez last played in Europe).
Was it a foul by Hirving Lozano after he crashed the second post? Was the only reason he was even in the game the new 5 substitution rule per game? Maybe, but the unlucky Napoli forward will take what he can as he tries to inch his way back into the Napoli Lineup under coach Gennaro Gattuso, who has been extra tough on him. Their next game is Sunday the 28th of June against SPAL and with a little more confidence with that goal scored we hope to see Hirving ‘Chucky’ Lozano on the starting lineup, or at least substituted in.
Record Breaker Raul Jimenez has entered the chat! A few days after breaking Javier ‘Chicharito” Hernandez’s English Premier League scoring record of 13 goals against West Ham in a 2-0 win, making it 14 goals for his English Premier League season. Raul Jimenez has put on another stunning performance with another header to put them up 1-0 and win the game against Bournemouth. Making it 15 goals and putting him 6th on the list of Top Scorers of the English Premier League. Everything Raul touches is turning into gold. In the form they are currently in Europa League may be small potatoes as they attempt to crash the top 4’s party and qualify for Champions League.
Being tied with Manchester United with 49 points with 31 games played and only 2 points behind Chelsea, but Chelsea have only played 30 games. Champions League is a possibility and seeing not only Raul Jimenez, but Wolves exciting team compete in the top European competition would be a delight. They take on Aston Villa on Saturday the 27th of June, where we expect another top-notch performance from Raul.
Jesus ‘Tecatito’ Corona:
Jesus Manuel Corona has come up big again for Porto FC where he was been playing lights out as a Right-winger, Right Wing back, and anywhere else he finds daylight. Monday of this week his team played Boavista F.C in a Primeira League Matchup where Porto dominated and where he started at Right Wing assisting Moussa Marega once for his brace for Porto. Then Porto capped it off with 2 penalties being scored by Alex Telles and Sergio Oliveira. Another assist for Jesus Corona as he played 80 minutes and played lights out again. They look to keep their form against Pacos Ferreira on Monday the 29th of June.
