Sangre americana J7 recap

El Gringo scores! The most newsworthy item among our Mexican-American boys in Mexico was Jesus Padilla's goal. Now, I'm not sure if Gerardo Mascerano scored in his one and only season with Chivas but this may be the first time an American scored for Chivas during league play in its history.

It probably won't be the last as the native son of San Jose, Calif. will probably have plenty more chances to score.

Here's the goal. It's toward the end, as the goal was a stoppage-time equalizer.

Primera Division
Jesus Padilla - Came on as a substitute in the 66th minute and scored equalizer in stoppage time in Chivas' 1-1 draw with Morelia

I've noticed that Michael Orozco hasn't been included in the lineup since his return from the Olympics. Do you have any scoop on that?

I think that Raul Arias didn't want to mess with a line-up that was undefeated until this weekend's game against Atlante.

Orozco will slowly be introduced back to the starting XI but I think Arias is of "if it ain't broken, don't fix it" school.
