Mexicans Abroad

Mexicanas Abroad in the Americas: Recaps & Previews – Week 52

While most of the attention on the Americas has been focused on the National Women’s Soccer League in the United States, Karina Santana had a great game for Suva Sports in Costa Rica, giving the previously winless club their first of the season thanks to her goal in the 22nd minute. And while some NWSL teams (and the teams in Guatemala where Perla Morones and Verónica Jiménez play) were off, there were other games played that included Mexicanas Abroad in the Americas.

Karina Santana scored a goal and Zoe Tapia was subbed off in the 68th minute for Darlin Arce as Suva Sports picked up a 2-1 win over Pérez Zeledón on Sunday, May 8th.
