With another two goals last Tuesday, Henry Martin confirmed that he is not only back as a ‘killer’ in the area, but in his best football moment with the Águilas del América.
The ‘Bomb’ in the course of a year has gone from being excluded and being on the cream-blue exit ramp to wear the captain’s armband and be the best player of Club America.

“With great pride. I don’t put pressure on myself when trying to reach anyone, I just work and if it’s good and if not, nothing happens (…) I think about the game that follows, about the goals I have in the short term. the rest comes alone“Henry Martín said in a rather humble and calm tone to the press after his double and achievement of entering the top-10 scorers of America.
