Tigres debut with victory over San Luis;  Jenni Hermoso will wear number 10

With world champion Jennifer Hermoso as witness in a booth, champion Tigres UANL made its debut this Saturday in the Clausura 2024 tournament of the Mexican Women’s Football League with a 1-0 victory over São Luís.

On the first day of the championship, Stephany Mayor scored for the Cats, led by Spaniard Milagros Martínez, who contributed the first three points to defend the title.

Minutes before the match, Spain’s Jennifer Hermoso was introduced to Tigres fans, her new team, along with South African international Thembi Kgatlana and Mexico’s Alison González, Mila’s other signings.

Tigres took over the first half, in which San Luis did not fire a single shot.

Martínez’s side tried it first in the 10th minute Auction from Jacqueline Ovalle, and then in the 13th, with another from Maricarmen Reyes, but both hit the post.

After these failures, the cat’s goal failed. On the 22nd oval, right, he crossed a powerful shot into the penalty area, which Mayor headed to make it 1-0.

In the second half, San Luis continued to lose and Tigres remained the hosts of the game, but some deflected shots from Ovalle at 50 and 52 and another against the post in stoppage time prevented the score from rising.

During his lecture, Jennifer Hermoso announced that he will wear the number 10, printed on the shirt he wore in his new team.

Hermoso, who arrived in Mexico on Saturday, entered the pitch of his new stadium Universitário together with the other two new signings, the South African international Thembi Kgatlana and the Mexican Alison González, a few minutes before his new team’s debut in the tournament . from 2024.

None of the three spoke and they only listened to a presenter summarizing their careers. The one who received the most applause and shouts was Hermoso.

“This is crazy, coming to Tigres is one of the things I wanted most. “I hope I can enjoy this wonderful hobby,” Hermoso said as he landed in Monterrey, the capital of Tigres, a few hours before his presentation at Universitario.

The 33-year-old from Madrid is participating in her fourth tournament in Mexico. Upon his arrival in June 2022, he moved to Tuzas del Pachuca, with whom he scored 26 goals and provided 10 assists. In addition, Hermoso came second with the Tuzas in Clausura 2023.

Arriving in Monterrey from Madrid, the Iberian was welcomed by dozens of fans, some carrying banners in support of the midfielder and others carrying bouquets of flowers given to the Spanish player.

“I didn’t expect this reception. It’s something you have to experience to express how you feel. Tigres is one of the best teams in Mexico, their fans are among the best and I want to have fun and win titles,” Hermoso added at the airport.

After introducing him to the monarch’s fans, Jenni sat on a box to enjoy Tigres’ match against San Luis on the first day of Clausura 2024.

Spanish cat trainer Milagros Martínez realized last Wednesday that the vacationing Hermoso has no date for its debut in Clausura 2024, in which the Cats dream of winning the seventh league title in their history to establish themselves as the biggest winners from Mexico.
