TECOS DECISION LOOMS FOR OCHOA
EXTRA TIME
CHAD WINGER - Tuesday, June 14, 2005
US Under-20 striker Sammy Ochoa is set to make a decision on his future following the completion of the World Youth Championship in Holland.

Ochoa, 18, has been strongly linked to join his brother Jesus on the books of MLS side Club Deportivo Chivas as well as a return to Mexico to rejoin Tecos.

"I'm just going wait until [after the tournament] and see what happens," Ochoa told YA. "But I still gave Tecos my first option."

Ochoa gained his American citizenship in November 2004 and was a surprise starter in the US' tournament opening 1-0 win over Argentina.

Prior to the Championships, Ochoa had reportedly turned down a two-year offer from Tecos.

Ochoa and the U-20's get back into group stage play this evening as they square off against European power Germany at the Arke Stadion in Enschede.
