Americans Abroad Weekend Rewind: Jonathan Gonzalez, John Brooks and more

Jonathan Gonzalez and Monterrey advanced to the Liga MX final on Sunday with yet another resounding win, booking a match against a fellow American with a trophy on the line.

After narrowly taking the first leg against Morelia, Gonzalez and Monterrey stormed to a 4-0 second leg win in Sunday’s semifinal clash. Now, Gonzalez and co. look ahead to a clash with Jose Torres’ Tigres in the finale following a 3-0 thumping of Club America over the weekend.
