Herrera helps earn a dramatic victory; Lozano claims his first Eredivisie title
From ESPN - April 16, 2018

The good times keep rolling for several high-profile Europeos. In recent weeks, there seems to be no lack of goals and noteworthy performances from some of the most prominent El Tri names.

Looking back at the past few days, it was easy for Mexican soccer fans to continue to feel positive after watching Hector Herrera score a dramatic match-winner and Hirving Lozano secure his first Eredivisie title.

There's plenty to cover this week, so without further ado, here's the latest edition of the Heroes and Villains list for the Mexicans in Europe.

Heroes

We have to start with Hector Herrera. During Sunday's much-anticipated O Classico between Porto and Benfica, Herrera stepped up as the undeniable game-changer. The match remained scoreless until the Porto captain stepped up with a goal in 90th minute that clinched an invaluable 1-0 away win. With the victory in hand, Porto have now leapfrogged Benfica in the Primeira Liga table and moved back into first place with a two-point cushion. Keeping in mind that only four match days are left this season, Porto's race to a league title has now become much easier after Herrera's goal.

Over in the Netherlands, there's no overlooking what Hirving Lozano and PSV have just accomplished. Thanks to a 3-0 win over Ajax, Lozano and his club secured the Eredivisie championship for the 2017-18 season. With 15 goals and eight assists so far in the tournament, the Mexican winger has undoubtedly been a dominant attacking leader in PSV's title run.
