Player to watch: Uriel Antuna

To Cruz Azul’s fans’ delight, Antuna bagged a 94th-minute winner last week when his team faced Puebla at Estadio Cuauhtemoc. Sure, it was just a penalty shot, but he still managed to turn it into a goal, and in the end, it’s the three points that matter, right?

Antuna key for Anselmi

The only player with more goals for Cruz Azul than Antuna is Angel Sepulveda. This speaks volumes regarding Antuna’s importance to Martin Anselmi.
