Garcia Goal Helps U.S. Earn Draw Against Tecos
GUADALAJARA, Mexico (Jan. 27, 2008) -- Felix Garcia's second goal in two days helped the U.S. earn its second consecutive draw at the Copa Chivas in Guadalajara, Mexico with a 1-1 final against Tecos.
A long throw in from Sheanon Williams was flicked on by Steve Bimbaum to the foot of Garcia, who found the back of the net.
Goalkeeper Abdul Hamid was forced to leave the game with an injury, and will return to Virginia to treat a separated shoulder. Zac MacMath will head to Guadalajara on Sunday evening to replace him.
