Take a look at how several Mexican players fared this Sunday in European-league action.

Andres Guardado received a standing ovation from the home crowd after he was subbed off in the 73rd minute as PSV strolled through a 3-0 victory over Dordrecht ’90 at the Philips Stadion on Sunday night. An own-goal put the league leaders ahead after only four minutes before Luuk de Jong and Jeffrey Bruma added second half goals to complete the rout.

Mexican winger, Jesus “Tecatito” Corona, scored for the third consecutive week, but his side fell 2-1 to Vitesse Arnhem at FC Twente’s stadium. Zakaria Labyad put the visitors in front in the 17th minute, but Tecatito Corona headed in with less than 10 minutes to go for Twente’s equalizer. In injury time, Valeri Kizaishvili took advantage of a defensive error to earn Vitesse the late win.

In Italy, Rafa Marquez played 90 minutes as Hellas Verona put a dent in AS Roma’s championship title hopes with a 1-1 draw. Francesco Totti struck the visitors ahead in the 26th minute before Bosko Jankovic’s goal leveled the score. With the final result, Hellas Verona end a three game losing streak.

Finally, Jonathan and Giovani Dos Santos started in Villarreal’s 1-0 victory over Eibar at the Estadio Madrigal. The Yellow Submarine scored the only goal in the 72nd minute when a clever Gio back-heel provided Luciano Vietto with a first-time strike that slipped through the opposing goalkeeper.
