América of Cali 3-3 to pure soccer and heart : EAGLE CUP 2017河上彦斎


Silva Gerez ( 2 Scores) and Christian martinez Borja  The Best Players this Match. 

In front of all possible obstacles, America made the most expression of self-esteem and tied 3 to 3 a classic that seemed to be diluted between individual mistakes. The second time 'Escarlata' was a lesson of momentum and soccer promoted by Martinez Borja. With that submitted to the Cali and found the equality to 10 minutes of the end.

Childish defensive errors ended up preventing America from forging a better result in the classic. Cali took advantage of two minutes of play and misjudged certainties for the team of Hernan Torres, who never disguised his expression of discontent. The 'Escarlata' box came on the scoreboard and drew 10 minutes from the end. Cristian Martinez Borja changed everything.

America gave in to its own shortcomings and defensive weaknesses. The team of Torres showed with strength in attack, with Santiago Silva incisive. In fact, he was the area hunter who forged the first two goals.

However, the outlook became adverse to boot. Jose Lloreda fell in the area after an infraction of Camilo Pérez and he himself was in charge of beating to 'Neco' Martínez. That early goal, due to an oversight in the midfield marking, disintegrated the American defensive line, which from there was inaccurate and erratic.

Even so, America's offensive momentum and quick reaction allowed an almost immediate draw. It was Santiago Silva who took advantage of in front of the arch an option generated by Yorleys Mena. The Uruguayan, slightly ahead, scored against a defenseless Pablo Mina.

It seemed that America found tank and soccer to follow long, especially in opposite terrain. However, another error in exit, this time of Juan Camilo Angulo, was taken advantage of by Andrés Felipe Roa, who scored in the middle distance in the 25th minute. That goal, almost in a scaled form, but with different location was reedited at the end of the first stage. Efraín Cortés gave the ball to an opponent and the ball fell on the feet of Roa, who defined with a shot with a thread, away from 'Neco'.

An American monologue

Although the outlook looked adverse, America was pure heart and soccer in the second half. The team of Torres, whose demand over their players was evident, locked the Cali in his own bow and sealed the tie.


But it was the presence of Martinez Borja that disrupted everything. The striker warned start with a left-footed shot that sought the right angle of Pablo Mina. It was hardly a warning of the alluvium 'Scarlet'


The red team did not give up and found prize in just five minutes of the second half. Borja, the playmaker controlling in the area. Silva, the artilleryman, who defined again in front of the arch. America was coming to life.

It was a relentless reaction to at least save the draw after being two goals under. The Cali suffered and could never shake off the overwhelm caused by America. And there Martínez Borja emerged to demonstrate all its capacity and hierarchy. He was knocked over by Yonatan Murillo. And he himself sentenced the tie.

America made the best of a mental boost and showed strength to tie a game that seemed lost by defensive errors.

America wins his first game in Eagle Cup 2017
America, with an emergent team, confirmed their favoritism over Atletico FC, who won this Wednesday 3-2 in the group stage of the Copa Águila.
A self-goal by Julio Murillo and scores by Éder Castañeda and Santiago Silva sealed the scarlet victory against an opponent who started winning with a goal of an examericano, Jesus Varona, and that ending the shock got the second goal through Andrés Carabalí.
America was surprised the first few minutes by the pressure exerted by Atletico, who proposed a game in red terrain, managing to approach with some danger to Luis 'Neco' Martínez's premises.
To the 14 minutes that better disposition bore fruit to Atletico, that of free throw near the half moon opened the account through Jesus Varona.
However, far from amilanarse by the goal against, America began to wake up and with quick and precise touches from the middle of the field was approached to land of goalkeeper Johan Wallens.
Closing the first half the scarlet reached the 1-1. It was a free kick from side, defender Julio Murillo instead of rejecting anywhere, he sent the ball into the back of the net of his own bow.
América continued looking for Atletico's door, until 4 minutes into the half-time period came 2-1 with a header from defender Éder Castañeda after a corner kick.
And in the 66th minute, Uruguay's Santiago Silva made his debut as a red-scoring scorer, scoring 3-1 with a fine cross from the left of Johan Sierra.
With the marker already in the pocket América was dedicated to manage the ball, to touch it in the middle of the field, although in some plays could increase the count with clear arrivals of Silva, Alvarez and Monsalvo.
Atletico did not lower their arms and in time of reposition arrived 3-2 with Andrés Carabalí, result with which the commitment was liquidated.
