The team of Eagles of America is ready to dispute the Opening Tournament 2021. Those led by the Argentine coach Santiago Solari witnessed a tour in the United States to do preseason and start the upcoming contest in shape. The rivals he faced were Atlas, Santos Laguna and Tigres UANL.
The Azulcremas did not have a major complication to account for each of the clubs they faced. His first game was against Santos Laguna, played last Sunday, July 4. The Americanists beat the Warriors by the slightest difference with a solo goal from the Colombian forward Roger Martinez.
The second commitment was on Wednesday, July 7, against the Atlas Foxes. In a disputed match, with many emotions and back and forth, the score was favorable for the capital team 1-0. One of the new reinforcements of the club, Fernando Madrigal, debuted defending the azulcrema shirt and took advantage of a Leo Suárez center to sentence the game.
Finally, the meeting with which America closed amenities on its tour of the United States was the UANL Tigers. Last Saturday both teams took to the field of the Venue Alamodome, in San Antonio, Texas, to measure forces. In a match fought in the middle sector of the field, the goal fell on the legs of the other recent signing, Salvador Reyes, who put the victory goal for his squad.
That is how America finished their preseason for the start of the 2021 Apertura Tournament. Although it is true that most of the fans were satisfied with the performance of the team shown by getting three out of three, what is also a reality is that they won with very little, and in the commitments they only scored one goal per game. For now, it will be on Thursday July 22 when they debut in the contest, on their visit to face the Gallos Blancos del Querétaro.
