‘The Red One’ has teamed up with Chile’s premier English language media group ‘I Love Chile‘ to provide even more news and comment on Chilean football.
“Chupete” notched two goals for Monterrey to break the all-time goal scoring record of the Mexican club, Daniel Boyle reports.
Humberto Suazo became Monterrey’s highest goal scorer of all time, scoring his 96th and 97th goals in the thrashing of Chorillo FC in the CONCACAF Champions League. The Mexican team cruised to victory, scoring six unanswered goals. The defending champions were a level above their opposition and barely broke a sweat to blast the Panama team off the field.
Suazo’s 97 goals have come in all competitions for the club. Considering only Mexican league games, “Chupete” is ranked second, with Brazil’s Mario de Mota Souza Bahía. The veteran forward missed Chile’s last two games with injury.
Suazo needs nine more goals to overcome the record for all Mexican clubs of Tomás Boy (105). Boy captained the Mexican national team and played his career with Tigres de la UANL, Monterrey’s local rivals. The legendary goalscorer is now coach with Atlas.
While at club level, Suazo has been dominant, the top goal scorer of Chile’s 2010 World Cup qualifying campaign has struggled to find the back of the net for La Roja.
Claudio Borghi will be hoping Suazo can bring this form back to the national team as Chile attempt to climb back up the standings when the qualification process begins again next year.
