Jose Torres has World Cup experience on his resume after taking part in the 2010 tournament in South Africa, and he looks to determined to play in another.
For the second time in three games, Torres found the back of the net for Tigres UANL in a 6-0 Copa MX mauling of Atlante on Wednesday night. Torres scored a stunning beauty in the 24th minute to give Tigres a commanding 3-0 lead, rifling a shot from a tight angle to the top corner of the far post.
The splendid strike came just 10 days after he netted in a 3-0 triumph over Cruz Azul and ahead of next month’s U.S. Men’s National Team’s friendly with Mexico, which could serve as a launching pad for Torres (assuming he is called in) to make it onto the Americans’ World Cup roster this summer.
Fellow American Jonathan Bornstein started and played 68 minutes for Atlante in the match.
Here is Torres’ goal:
What do you think of the goal? Think he is making a good case to be on the USMNT’s World Cup squad? Hoping to see him called in and earning a start in the upcoming friendly against Mexico?
