America, without official reinforcements
America wants to win a title in Mexican soccer again; however, the outlook does not look encouraging. The eagles have not officially incorporated reinforcements, although there are several rumors about ups and downs.
Jrgen Damm is the main novelty in the whole of Coapa, although in reality it is on trial. Last Sunday he came on as a substitute in the second half and left minutes later, during the defeat against Pumas in Chicago.
