In front of his home fans at Estadio Azteca, Miguel Layun put in the performance of a lifetime.
The Club America right back played the kind of game fullbacks dream of, scoring all four goals in America’s 4-1 romp over Santos Laguna. While three of the four came from inside the box, Layun’s second was a sensational 45-yard chip on a first-touch half-volley with the goalkeeper way off his line.
The Mexican national team defender beat out Lionel Messi, Atletico Madrid’s Koke and Cagliari’s Alkin Egdal for this week’s honors.
