Superliga Final Group Stage Night

In perhaps the least entertaining match of the Superliga, Houston defeated DC United to win Group B and advance to the semifinals. The second match between Moriela and Club America on the other hand was very entertaining. The papers back in Mexico City have been exceedingly critical of America’s poor performance in this tournament. Moriela was reduced to ten men when a penalty was called in the box which gave America a 2-0 lead, but Moriela as has been the case throughout this tournament rallied and scored two quick goals down a man. Late in the match Federico Insua beat the ten man Moriela side to secure the win for America’ 3-2. Despite the result, and the failure to advance Moriela’s grit and determination (and 3 shorthanded goals) have to be considered one of the stories of Superliga 2007. Later today I’ll have my thoughts on what Superliga needs to do to improve as an event for 2008 and beyond.
