Carlos Vela is a Mexican fella, used to drink tequilla, now he's on Stella. He is only 20 and yet has scored 6 goals in 18 full international games for Mexico and is seen as the wonder kid of Mexican football. He recently starred in the 5-0 demolition of Team USA in the 'Gold Cup Final' in the summer of 2009, 2009/10 should be a his year.

Not sure if there are any threads on this fella, and thought I'd offer one up just in case anyone is keeping tabs.
Is he getting any games? Goals?
Anyway, this thread is created so that we don't miss the news when he bangs in a hat-trick againt Real Madrid.
Played 5 games so far this season, started one and come on 4 times as sub. Played 117 minutes, no goals, 1 assist, 2 shots on target, both with his left foot. Commited 2 fouls and has had 6 made against him. Caught offside twice.
Think that sums it up!
