Nery Castillo Makes Chicago Fire Debut

On Sunday, August 8, 2010, Mexican international Nery Castillo made his much-anticipated debut for the Chicago Fire against the New Jersey Metrobulls at Toyota Park.

Castillo was inserted into the lineup by coach Carlos de los Cobos in the 56th minute with much fanfare (including a league-first fireworks display to mark a substitution). Despite missing the first 16 games of the season, Castillo has already assumed the team lead in offsides calls.
