Johan Vesquez started his journey in Italy’s Serie A with the right foot, by starting and scoring, to give his side Genoa a 2-2 draw against Sassuolo.
The Mexican witnessed his first minutes in the Italian League in the eighth round of the tournament, where he finished third in the last place, waiting for the conclusion of the date.
Previously, the defender, a bronze medalist at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics, was unable to celebrate matches in Italy due to the injury he had been pulling since the summer tournament. Then it was just a natural adaptation process.
Johan Vesquez’s goal
The Mexican defender played the entire match, his first since arriving in Serie A. It was in the 89th minute when he lifted the entire stadium from his seat to celebrate the agony.
It was at a corner kick as the former UNAM Pumas defender got up to head one of his majors to finish the fall and unmarked inside the area. The shot was impossible for the goalkeeper, who made a movement only with his hands, but without being able to respond.
The Mexican national team player was congratulated by his colleagues who watched closely his progress in the team, his adaptation and the effort he made to overcome injuries and get a place in the team’s main defense.
What’s next for Johann Vesquez?
On the next day 9 of Serie A, Genoa visits Turin, a meeting in which the Mexican defender is expected to start and play his second match for the team that took him to Europe.
In addition, with this annotation, it is possible that Gerardo Martino will again call him up for the Mexican national team for the two CONCACAF World Cup qualifiers bound for Qatar 2020, when they visit the United States and Canada in November.
