24 Under 24: Jose Correa

By Olivia Cervantes

Just last April, Colombian forward Jose Erik Correa was the top goal scorer in his native country’s Liga Postobon with his now former club Boyacá Chico FC. Then, he joined Chivas USA. In his first two games, 19 year-old Correa began demonstrating the type of player he is when he scored one goal each game. But we’re not talking about just any goals, but he notched the winning goal in the first SuperClásico of the season, a win that took four years to come to the Goats. Aside from action within MLS regular season, Correa became the top goal scorer for the Red-and-White in the 2012 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup run.
