To mark Club America’s centennial season, club legend and current mayor of Cuernavaca Cuauhtemoc Blanco was brought back to play one final Liga MX match 11 months after he retired from football. Wearing the №100 shirt, Blanco started Morelia on Saturday and dazzled the crowd with flashes of his unique skills, including his signature move, the Cuauhtemiña.
Blanco only played 38 minutes, but he very nearly scored a spectacular goal. Watch this…
America went on the win 4–1, but even bigger than the result, Blanco has to be the first sitting mayor to play a first division match, right?
