Monterrey’s Alonso Hernandez has been forced to be patient since returning from the FIFA Under-20 World Cup, but that did not stop him from making an impact on Tuesday.

Hernandez showed the skill that made U.S. Under-20 head coach Tab Ramos aggressively recruit him to the U.S. set-up for on Tuesday, dribbling past two players before slotting a perfect through ball to Monterrey teammate Luis Madrigal for a 48th-minute winner in a 1-0 victory over Puebla in Copa MX action.

Hernandez started for the third time in the Apertura Copa MX, going the full 90 in the victory. The El Paso, Texas-born forward has regularly made the Monterrey bench for their Liga MX matches, though he’s only made one appearance this fall, a 12-minute cameo off the bench against Puebla in a 1-1 draw.

Here’s the video of the assist (after the jump):
