Memo Ochoa – Malaga (Spain)

Ochoa was subbed into Malaga’s match against Deportivo as starting keeper Carlos Kameni, was subbed out with what looks to be a serious leg injury. The game ended 3-3, but Ochoa will look to be the starting keeper for the foreseeable future.

This is huge news, as his run in Spain had been underwhelming since he was never given a spot to play. If he can tackle this opportunity, we may see Ochoa suited up in the Copa América.
