Women's Xolos made the arrival of the first foreign player who will arrive to reinforce the team for the 2021 Apertura.
Xolos announced the signing of the first foreign player in its history.
This is the American forward Angelina Hix, who comes from the Chilean team Santiago Morning, a team with which she played the Copa Libertadores.
The American is the sixth reinforcement of Xolos for the next season.
Alejandra Gutiérrez, Annia Mejía, Stephany Mejía, Joselyn de la Rosa, Esmeralda Verdugo and Sanjuana Muñoz are the five players who complete the signatures made by the Border team.
Thanks to her performances, Hix played in the LA Galaxy Orange County UWS in 2018. In that same year, she continued her career in the Old Continent with ZFK Spartak of Serbia. She was the champion and participated in the Champions League.
The forward was born on July 27, 1993, in Irvine, California. He became known in soccer in the Californian region with Miracosta College in 2011 and three years later with the San Diego Sealions WSPL, scoring 81 goals.
However, the American was also part of the Tijuana semi-professional team that competed in the Third Division of American soccer before the Mexican league was born in 2017.
Angelina suffered an injury during her European adventure. The anterior cruciate ligament, the median collateral, and the meniscus were torn. He underwent two surgeries and recovered in about 20 years, in 2020.
After his rehabilitation, he regained confidence and level with the ball, and that is how he signed with the Chilean club for the continental cup and, after his time in Andean football, he arrived in Tijuana, where he awaits the start of the tournament with the illusion of staying a long time with the border-box.
Hix is an unbalancing, fast player with a physical presence who will seek to add all her qualities to the red and black coached by Fabiola Vargas.
Angelina has become the fourth foreigner in the Liga MX Femenil for the Apertura 2021; joins Michelle Montero (Costa Rica), who arrived with La Maquina, the Brazilian Stephany Ferrer came to strengthen the feline team, and Vanessa Montero, the American who came in Querétaro.
All the teams on the top circuit continue to add new players to their squads for the next tournament. In addition, it should be remembered that the Liga MX Femenil announced changes for the Apertura 2021.
One of the most significant is that the teams will be able to use the services of two foreign soccer players; with this, the exclusive circuit of players born or trained in our country will be broken.
In addition, the participating clubs agreed to create the Basic Forces from the Under-17 category to empower and provide experienced players to the first category teams.
Through FIFA, it was determined that if a soccer player decides to become a mother during the competition, the clubs may decide to replace or terminate the player without it being counterproductive for either party.
The women's Pumas and América will begin to play their home games on the Estadio Olímpico Universitario and Aztecafields, respectively.
The Liga MX Femenil also reached an agreement so that all teams can broadcast their matches on television.
Internationally, the possibility of contact with the National Women's League in the United States and the FA Women's Super League in England was accepted to promote expansion, in addition to establishing sponsorships for the Women's Champion of Champions, Women's Ballon d'Or, and the Campeones Cup.
