We often think of pro-soccer through the lens of European fans_and sometimes Brazil. Yet now we’ve had the opportune chance to see the Mexican-hailing Club America vs. Monarcas Morelia. In this most recent match, Club America took home 2 points while Morelia scored,well, nothing. 2-0 puts Club America in the lead and proves that pro-soccer is not the province of Euro fans.
FMF State of Mind calls this a big win for Club America. It was a big enough win to push Club America to a spot in the 2019 Liga MX Apertura Final.
What came surprisingly was how close Morelia came to the Liguilla this time. Just the day before the game, USA Today Sports’ For the Win called it “a draw away from advancing”.
This game has been heavily anticipated for over a week. Now, with these results in, Goal.com states,”America moves one step closer to meeting lofty expectations” through the win that landed them the Liga spot. There is an understood prestige to the win that puts one in the final matches. This is something reserved only for the elite of the culture_and America, a continent more famous for NFL-styled football and baseball_has made its way into that culture.
Club America as a team hails out of Mexico City, Mexico. It is a representative not only of the Americas as leaders in sports, but of Latino sports culture.
Also citing Goal.com, the Club America team was lead beautifully by Michael Herrera who knew that his team was expected to make the final. They delivered as a whole unit. The results show their profound dedication.
More came from this than the expected Liga qualification. Citing the Athletic, some sources state that Inter Miami is now actively looking to sign Club America’s Roger Martinez as a designated player.
So, how do you watch the Liga Final anyway? In the US, you may require a special cable program for full viewing privileges. Sling TV has La Liga channel under their “Best of Spanish”programs.
