WATCH: Uriel Antuna nets again for Mexico in Nations League

Tuna’s on a roll!

MLS: Montreal Impact at LA Galaxy Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Tuna’s on a roll! It seems the LA Galaxy attacker has settled into the Mexican National Team with ease: The on-loan Manchester City midfielder scored Mexico’s opening tally in their 5-1 CONCACAF Nations League victory over Bermuda Friday night.

Hirving “Chucky” Lozano escaps the challenges of two opponents before gliding into the final third unimpeded and playing a pleasantly timed through ball for Antuna who easily rounds the keeper with a single touch before passing into an empty net. Tuna now has six goals in eight appearances for El Tri. (Additionally Antuna has six goals and five assists in MLS, picking up his production since the arrival of Cristian Pavon)

Antuna thriving at the national team level bodes well for the Galaxy organization, who would love to see Uriel return next season while he continues to develop and refine his game.

On the flip side, that transfer fee is steadily riding.
