Ex-Chivas USA midfielder Francisco Mendoza featured in Club Deportivo Guadalajara's (Chivas) opening game of the new Mexican league season. The high-intensity game ended 3-3 with Mendoza featuring for the final 15 minutes.

Mendoza's move as a Chivas USA original from MLS back to the Mexican top flight is being observed closely by professionals and fans of the game in the US as his success could lead the way to more trades between Mexican and American teams.
