Just before beating Club América with a late free kick off the bench, red-hot Puebla forward Herculez Gomez divulged that U.S. coach Bob Bradley is taking note of his recent goal-scoring exploits. "There has been contact," he stated.
"I have a small possibility of being called," said Gomez, now tied for second in the league with seven goals despite playing just 556 minutes. "They know what I am doing here. The media and fans are showing support for me (to be called up) because at this moment I am the one forward from my country that is scoring goals."
