Mexico Primera Division 2819 43 Mexicans Abroad: Nov. 29 - Dec. 3 31976559 Looking forward Looking+forward Mexico Primera Division

The meeting between Espanyol and Real Sociedad on Sunday offered a glimpse at the potential infrastructure of the Mexican side at next summer's World Cup. Héctor Moreno provided the defensive solidity and the set piece menace for Espanyol. Carlos Vela supplied the cutting edge for Sociedad down the other end. Vela remains an outcast for El Tri, but the influence of both players on the day suggested the former Arsenal man could strengthen the outfit considerably if included.

 

The meeting between Moreno and Vela drew top billing for Mexicans Abroad this weekend, but they weren't the only internationals to take the field across Europe. Read on to learn more about Giovani dos Santos' return for Villarreal and another difficult encounter for Ajaccio and Guillermo Ochoa:

Both Mexican internationals prompted goals in Sociedad's 2-1 victory at El Prat on Saturday. Moreno arranged Jhon Cordoba's opener just after the half-hour mark to give Javier Aguirre's side the lead at the break. Vela responded when he set up Antoine Griezmann's equalizer after 69 minutes. Christian Stuani turned into his own net with two minutes remaining to allow Sociedad to escape with the full complement of points.

The beleaguered goalkeeper spent another afternoon picking the ball out of the back of the net in a 4-0 defeat at Bordeaux on Sunday. Jussiê proved the tormentor-in-chief as he scored the first and last goals to ensure a comfortable afternoon for the home side. Ochoa could not do anything to prevent his relegation-threatened side from slipping to a second straight defeat in league play.

Weligton pounced in second-half stoppage time to lift Malaga to a 1-1 draw at El Madrigal on Friday. Villarreal consolidated its first-half advantage when Bruno swept home shortly after the half-hour mark to open the scoring. Giovani entered the fray just after the hour mark to help Aquino and the Yellow Submarine see out the encounter, but the Brazilian center back headed home in the late stages to claim a point for the visitors.

United manager David Moyes waited 73 minutes before throwing Chicharito into the fray in the 2-2 draw at Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday. Hernández replaced Danny Welbeck for the final quarter of an hour, but he could not find a way to turn the match in United's favor. The result left United nine points behind Arsenal in the race for the Premier League title.
