Mexico’s National Team, El Tri, stormed their way into the Gold Cup Final, trouncing Jamaica 3-0. As the dust settled and the euphoria began to spread among the players, they found an unexpected participant in their victory celebration – Eduin Caz, the famed vocalist of Grupo Firme. In the wake of this victory, Caz took to social media, inspired by the team’s custodian, ‘Memo’ Ochoa.
Eduin Caz took to Instagram to share a humorous video where he dons a goalkeeper jersey named Guillermo Ochoa. The video, shot in his home, showcases his mimicking of Ochoa’s goalkeeping prowess. His friend tosses a pillow his way, and Caz dives spectacularly, stopping the pillow goal in a spirited display. “Ochoaaa,” he exclaims after his acrobatic save, emulating the legendary goalkeeper’s style.
At the Allegiant Stadium, Caz got a photo with the celebrated goalkeeper, which he proudly shared on his Instagram. His living room stunt was an impressive imitation of Ochoa, the five-time World Cup participant.
A Shared Journey: From Hotel to Field
Caz had been part of the pre-semifinals excitement, accompanying the team at their hotel and even seen singing along with Israel Reyes, the well-known defender of Club América. His engagement with the team continued as he accompanied them to the Allegiant Stadium, the battlefield for the key match of the CONCACAF competition. Following El Tri’s remarkable victory, the energetic vocalist went to the locker room to revel in the triumphant atmosphere with the players.
The singer took the chance to snap photos with Edson Álvarez, Ángel Malagón, Israel Reyes, Henry Martín, and, of course, Guillermo Ochoa. He even secured an autograph from the América goal-scorer, posing for pictures with him and the rest of the El Tri squad. In particular, his brief interaction with Ochoa sparked his imaginative video on Instagram, where he imitated the team’s stalwart goalkeeper.
Caz had made the trip to Las Vegas, famously known as “La Ciudad Del Pecado” (Sin City), especially to watch the National Team lock horns with Jamaica at the Allegiant Stadium. Post the match, Caz, the leader of Grupo Firme, joined the victorious team in the locker room. With the high spirits of a 3-0 win, Caz got to enjoy some quality time with players like Israel Reyes Romero, Henry Martin, Luis Angel Malagon, and Uriel Antuna. They even belted out “Qué Onda Perdida,” a popular track from his band, a collaboration with Gerardo Coronel, “El Jerry.”
Eduin Caz, a recent father for the third time, documented this memorable experience through various stories on his Instagram. One particular moment he shared was when he received a signed shirt from the Club America striker along with a note reading, “Thanks for the shirt of the goal carnal @henrymartinm.” Not to mention, his fan moment with goalkeeper Memo Ochoa was also worth capturing for his followers.
In a separate development, Grupo Firme stirred controversy by announcing the cancellation of their upcoming concert on July 20 at the Estadio Olímpico Metropolitano in San Pedro Sula, Honduras.
