Mexico goalkeeper Ochoa returns to Europe with Salernitana

SALERNO, Italy (AP) — Mexico goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa is going back to Europe after signing a contract with Serie A club Salernitana following a solid performance at his fifth World Cup. The southern team says Ochoa has signed a deal through the end of the season with an option for an extension. The 37-year-old Ochoa had been playing for America in Mexico. He previously played for Ajaccio, Malaga, Granada and Standard Liege in Europe. Ochoa blocked a penalty from Robert Lewandowski to preserve a 0-0 draw with Poland in Mexico’s World Cup opener last month.
