It was a very high and low week for the Mexicans abroad. Several players had outstanding matches for their clubs, while others suffered to see time and or played well below par.
Take a look at how it went this past weekend…
Things are not looking good for Marco, as he has yet to see any playing time in this season for Eintracht Frankfurt.
Carlos V managed to see some time in the second half in the 2-0 victory for Real Sociedad over Osasuna.
Moreno and Guardado went the full 90 minutes as they faced a stubborn FC Groningen side in a 0-0 final. PSV now sits at second in the table, only two points behind Feyenoord.
It was a bitter sweet day for the FC PorTri players at Porto, as Layún recorded an assist against Sporting, but Porto would fall, 1-2, against their rivals. Also, Tecatito left the match with a shoulder injury and will miss the September WCQ’s.
Diego Reyes continues to not see playing time.
With the worst result of the weekend, Memo Ochoa’s Granada was annihilated by Las Palmas, 1-5. Despite being on a new club and earning the starting spot, Ochoa might be looking at a very long season.
It wasn’t all tears this weekend, as Raúl got his second goal of the season in just his second appearance for Benfica. A brilliantly timed interception and score late in the match, as Benfica defeated CD Nacional de Madeira, 3-1.

Salcedo has been presented by his club, but did not see playing time this weekend.
- Chicharito and Jonathan dos Santos are injured, hence their omission in the report.
- Paul Aguilar has picked up an injury and will be replaced by Orbelín Pineda for El Tri this week.
- With injuries to Tecatito and Nestor Araujo, another name or two will most likely be called to replace them on the roster.
