FutMexNation is here to bring you your weekly update about our Mexicans abroad. With a debutant scoring his first goal in Europe to the rest of the Mexicans Abroad returning to club play after the international break, here are some key points you might have missed about our favorite Aztecas:
After having an impressive showing at this year’s Olympic games, Johan Vasquez’s name might suddenly gained traction once again after having an impressive debut on Sunday with Genoa. Vasquez started the match against Sassuolo and was able to put up an impressive showing during the full 90 minutes, including the leveling goal he delivered in the 89th minute of play — the first of his European career.
Johan’s goal came off a corner kick, where he was able to sneak in near the first post and put a strong header past the Sassuolo goalkeeper. As impressive as that goal was, some of the stats for him from this game are also very noteworthy, having a 95 percent accuracy on his passes, along with eight recoveries, two interceptions, and seven duels won. A promising debut for Johan Vasquez should hopefully continue as his European career progresses and will help him become a reliable defender for El Tri for future international competitions.
