Club América

I’ve been casually following soccer in Mexico for a few years and in that time I became enthralled by an attractive and highly competitive league.  A lot of my friends were (and still are) supporters of Club América, a giant club from the nation’s capital which holds the second most domestic titles and the most international titles of any team in Mexico.  Though their form in recent seasons has not lived up to their legacy, América remains a dangerous team in attack.

Summer acquisition Christian “Chucho” Benítez has been threatening, scoring 5 goals despite the team only amassing 8 points from 7 games.  At this point in the season, América find themselves in 16th place out of 18 teams; terrible by any but especially their high standards.  But consider that the team has a game in hand, their match against San Luis was postponed, and if they win this game they could springboard up to 6th place.  I think that is a testament to the competitive nature of the Mexican Primera, seeing as the Apertura is at its halfway point.

Have a look at the attacking potency América is capable of producing, from a match at home against Atlas in the 6th round of the Apertura.  Goals for América at 1:30, 2:55, 4:25, 5:50, and 8:15.
