Alejandro Guido is the latest American heading to Club Tijuana.
The U.S. Under-20 attacking midfielder will join the contingent of Americans at the top-flight Mexican club after signing his first professional contract on Wednesday. According to Yanks Abroad, the 18-year-old Guido signed a three-year deal with Xolos, where he'll team with Joe Corona, Edgar Castillo and Greg Garza.
Guido, who was reportedly on trial with Dutch side Vitesse over the summer, is one of the rising stars in the U.S. Under-20 player pool, and he starred for the United States in last summer's FIFA U-17 World Cup. He started every match in the tournament, scoring in the opening win over the Czech Republic. He was part of the most-recent U.S. U-20 training camp held in Florida, his first appearance at that level after advancing from the U-17s.
