Video: USA's Sammy Ochoa scores winning goal for Tecos in 2-1 victory over Atlas

Two minutes after entering, American forward Sammy Ochoa powers in an eight-yard header to lift Tecos to a 2-1 victory over Atlas in the Mexican league Friday night. Ochoa, 24, played for the United States at the 2005 U-20 World Cup in the Netherlands. He was born in Mexico but grew up in Riverside, Calif. (Ochoa's goal is at the 2:30 mark of the video clip -- great audio too.)

Pablo Hernandez scored? Pablo Hernandez scored?!?1 Pablo Hernandez scored!!!

Oh wait. It's the guy who plays for Valencia and just got capped by the Spanish national side. Not our Pablo Hernandez...

Nice goal, off a no-look centering pass to put Valencia on top of Barca, 1-0.

How soon until the JF Torres lovers transfer their love to Sammy? Can't happen soon enough for me...

Ochoa? He could play for the US, Mexico or the Basque "national" team.
