This time, there was no convincing Jose Torres to step aside.
Just three days after Herculez Gomez persuaded Torres to let him take the free kick that wound up being the winner in the U.S. men's national team's victory over Jamaica, Torres netted what wound up being the decisive goal in Pachuca's 3-2 win over Morelia on Friday. Torres curled in a ball from the right flank that sailed over everyone in the penalty area before nestling in the far corner.
The goal was Torres' first of the season and gave Pachuca their second win of the Mexican Apertura campaign. It was also the U.S. midfielder's first in league play since the 2010 Clausura season.
Here's the goal (at the 1:09 mark):
