Finding Consistency

As mentioned prior to this game the overarching theme for Club America was and is consistency. Especially regarding this Concacaf Champions Cup competition. In which this side has struggled to string along two good consistent games in where they close out the series looking sharp. Hiccups against Chivas in the last round and Real Esteli before that showed this team had much to improve. Which is exactly what they did in this series and demonstrated their prowess in both legs. Even after winning the first leg 4-0 on the road, America did not get complacent and achieved just as good of a result at home.

Historical Night For Henry Martin

As if the eccentric scoreline wasn’t enough to boast about, club captain Henry Martin reached a very impressive milestone with the team. After scoring in this game Henry officially scored 98 goals with Club America. Making him the ninth top goalscorer in the team’s history. Equalizing club legend Salvador Cabañas goal tally and now only two goals away from 100. An impressive achievement from Henry who celebrated by paying tribute to Cabañas with his iconic celebration.

Defense Lapse of Concentration

Club America played two very impressive games in this series. Scoring goals and demonstrating tactical superiority over New England. Yet if there was one thing to nit pick at this game was the lapse in concentration from the defense. Typically America’s strong suit this season, it seemed that the defense checked out of this match late in the game. And how can you blame them really? Up 8-0 in the aggregate scoreline the game was already over, but for a team that prides themselves on how well they’ve defended this season these two goals will be a blow. Maybe not a big one, but it surely will leave a bitter taste to both the defenders and the goalkeeper.

With consistency now part of their arsenal and a record-setting captain leading the charge, America’s ambitions soar higher than ever.
