It’s always exciting following the Mexicanas Abroad because you never know what will happen from week to week. Of course it’s daunting when players don’t make the game day roster, but it’s also fun seeing the progression of someone like Myra Delgadillo, who last year had trouble getting minutes to being a lock to start and contributing goals. Then there’s of course Kenti Robles, who is also an integral part Real Madrid’s starting XI, contributing assists in UEFA Women’s Champions League play. There’s always the chance something weird happens as well, like Pamela Tajonar getting an unexpected week off after Villarreal’s match against Tenerife was cancelled due to a volcano. In any case, here’s the rest of what happened for our players abroad this past weekend.
