Pachuca was en route to dropping points to Pumas UNAM on Sunday, but an American centerback soared high to head home the equalizing effort.

The 27-year-old U.S. Men’s National Team defender has started in all five games for the Liga MX club since transferring from the LA Galaxy in December.
Pachuca sits in second place on the Liga MX Clausura table with 11 points through five games, and will head back home to host Puebla next Saturday.
