A bunch of randomness for Wednesday.
Herculez Gomez likes scoring goals for Puebla and he scored another one last night in a 2-1 win in Copa MX action (highlights). I was also able to find some highlights of Devann Yao’s goal from the weekend (highlights).
Also scoring earlier this week was Jake Keegan in Galway United’s win in Irish League Cup action (highlights). Here is the post-game press conference with Keegan and his manager. Around the 2:50 mark, his manager talks about Kevin Garcia joining the team soon. I am guessing he is waiting for a work permit as I believe it took Keegan a while to get a new one for this season.
Staying in Ireland, St Patrick’s Athletic has signed midfielder Morgan Langley. Langley played in one game for the Philadelphia Union in 2011, but has mainly played his professional soccer with the Harrisburg City Islanders.
In case you missed it from yesterday, we found out that Conor O’Brien is going to be out three weeks with a broken rib.
Jerome Kiesewetter made his Bundesliga debut this past weekend and here is a photo of him in action.
Joe Corona started at left back for Tijuana this past weekend in replace of the injured Greg Garza and played well enough to make ESPN’s Liga MX Team of the Week.
Cameron Carter-Vickers played up with Tottenham’s U-21 team yesterday against a Manchester United U-21 team which featured Radamel Falcao and Victor Valdes. And it sounds like he did well.
However, Bongani Khumalo and Cameron Carter-Vickers kept Falcao quiet all night and Carter-Vickers came closest to a winner in the second half when his header came back off the crossbar.
If you haven’t already, time to buy a lot CCV stock.
