7/29/2010: Peruvian Striker Trialing With Columbus. Andres Mendoza Would Make Sense

From Crew Xtra:
--The Crew has declined to reveal the identity of the Peruvian striker set to trial with the team but he is expected to arrive soon pending approval of a visa. Warzycha said the Crew still has some other lines in the water, as well, and hopes to land a forward during the current transfer window.

From all I have looked at, scanning names of Peruvian strikers, someone such as Andres Mendoza would make the most sense. 32 years of age, 6'2, 351 appearances in Peru, Belgium, France, Mexico, Turkey, with 128 goals. 44 appearances with 8 goals for Peru. Did well in 2008-2009 with Morelia of Mexico with 13 goals in 27 appearances, only 5 goals in 15 appearances this year for Diyarbakırspor in Turkey. Likely, one year contract with Diyarbakirspor and moving on to the next place. Would fit the mold of someone needing to trial first before the Crew signs them; as that usually means the Crew are not looking at a top, top player. But, someone who could still be resourceful.

Here's some video on El Condor:

Hat trick for Morelia:

2 goals in a minute for Morelia, some game changing ability there:
