    According to the Mexican Fed, a '96 from San Diego named Fernando David Arce Juarez moved to Xolos this year after a couple of seasons in the Santos Laguna system. He appears to be a midfielder.

    I was wondering this too... meaning Arce was 16 when he had him which is possible.

    Fernando Arce started and went 53 minutes today, picking up a yellow card, as the Club Tijuana U-20's started the 2013 Apertura with a 3-1 loss to Atlas. During the 2013 Clausura he made 9 starts for the Club Tijuana U-17s and played 18 minutes in 1 substitute appearance for the Club Tijuana U-20s.

    I find this interesting because his father is a Mexican international and has been playing in Mexico his entire career so I would guess his Mexico connections are stronger than the American ones. I'm going to assume he was born in the USA or maybe his mother is American.

    Soccerwise - he made his first team debut a few days ago in a friendly vs. Tigres.

    Bit taller than his dad too. :D

    He must have an American relative, probably his mother. His father is only about 5'7, so he must be about 5'10 by my estimation. My estimations on heights are pretty bad though.

    Doesn't look like the mother is American actually. She tweets only in spanish. I'm stumped. How could this kid be eligible for the USA? Was he born in the USA? Maybe on vacation?

    at first i thought it was referring to the original fernando arce. now you're telling me it's his younger, taller, better looking son? if he has any of the wizardry of ol' papa he'd be a great player.

    Arce went the distance as the Club Tijuana U-20s opened the Clausura with a 2-2 draw against Atlas.

    The Mexican Fed lists his place of origin as San Diego.

    Credit to @Clint Eastwood on the YNT board for posting this nice story, which includes a quote from Paul Arriola:

    In the final seconds of the Tijuana Xolos’ 3-3 draw against Club América in a preseason exhibition at the StubHub Center on Dec. 28, Tijuana coach César Farías called for a substitution.

    Fernando Arce, a 33-year-old Tijuana native and long-time Liga MX midfielder, was summoned off the pitch. The player taking his place? Arce’s 17-year-old son, Fernando Arce Juarez.​

    We should just have a Tijuana Xolos thread up in here to keep track of all their AmerMex players.

    I have no idea. Still has nothing to do with being American.

    But anyway it looks like he was born in San Diego, so that answers that.

    This is one to keep a very close eye on. Getting first team minutes, even in garbage time, is a big deal at 17.

    Not to mention he said himself that he was born in San Diego.

    I think he just scored vs Puebla...I didn't know he was American....watched the match on Azteca America, pretty good game with assists from Castillo and Beasley and the final goal by someone who may or may not have been this Arce fella....


    Gotta be his father, right? Isn't he on the MexNats? He looks pretty dang familiar.

    Regardless, Gomez also had the assist that led to the might-be American dad's goal.
