TIJUANA - Club Tijuana Xoloitzcuintles de Caliente got an important, confidence boosting victory over one of the best Mexican clubs in recent times; Club America. United States Men’s National Team forward Herculez Gomez was once again in the starting lineup for
the Xolos but he feels there is still more to what he can offer.
“Personally I take these opportunities as a revenge or redemption for last season. Last season I was injured a lot and did not have many opportunities to play.
“I’m barely starting to show what I can do, and I feel there is more to it. People have only begun to see what I can do.”
Gomez feels that it was important to get the win over one of the better teams in the Mexican Liga MX.
“I feel good, it is always good to get a result against a good team. They’ve been one of the regular teams in Mexico the last couple of years. So anytime you play against a team of that caliber it is important to showcase yourself and showcase yourself as a team.”
Looking ahead to the rest of the season Gomez feels the wins sets the Xolos on the right track for what they want to accomplish.
“I think it is always good to get things off on the right foot, especially in front of our fans.”
