Erick ‘Cubo’ Torres moves to Club Tijuana


After a rough season with Liga MX side Pumas, Erick ‘Cubo’ Torres is making a switch within the Mexican league.

The 25-year-old Mexican has moved to Club Tijuana after making only five league appearances with Pumas last season.

Torres failed to score a goal with Pumas after a move from MLS’ Houston Dynamo in 2017. Torres scored14 goals in 49 appearances with Houston.

Torres began his career with Guadalajara in 2010 before being loaned to Chivas USA in 2013-14. After unsuccessful loans back to Guadalajara and Cruz Azul, Torres returned to MLS with the Dynamo ahead of the 2017 season.

Cubo has seven caps for the Mexican National Team, and has also represented them at the U-17, U-20, and U-23 levels in the past.


  1. XoloPass holder here and we just laughed at Cubo when he was warming up. After finally getting his attention, the people in front of yelled so many obscenities at him that any visiting GK would have felt more at home. Diego Cocca said that Xolos like to “take chances” on players, but for what we have lost (Aguilar, Malcorra, Iturbe and possible Bou), this will not fix the problem. We are hoping this gives more playing time for Rubín, who has looked great when he plays.
