Keeping up with Fredy, part 2

It's been three months since my last post on Fredy (here), and since then, he's gone on to play in 15 league matches, 2 Copa Colombia matches, and 6 Copa Libertadores matches. He's scored 4 times in the league, and twice in the Copa Colombia. Unfortunately, Millonarios were eliminated from Copa Libertadores, with only one game won out of six. The Millos were shut out five out of the six Copa Libertadores matches, and Fredy didn't make it onto the scoresheet in the one match the Millos managed to win. One of the motivations for Fredy to go back to Colombia on loan was to potentially increase his profile through the Copa Libertadores. It's yet to be seen whether this has actually been achieved or not. (I'm wagering not)

On the other hand, despite not bagging goals at a rate (though 6 in 17 matches isn't terrible) he did while he was still in rave green (17 goals in 37 matches in 2012, and 15 in 35 in 2011), one interesting thing popped out. Fredy has only scored twice with his feet so far. Though it's a small sample size, 2/3rds of the shots Fredy finishes are with his head. And interestingly enough, each time Fredy scores with his head, Millos win or at least draw. Each time he scores with his foot, Millos loses. Of course, this means nothing really, but it's interesting nonetheless.

I'm not sure how this compares to the percentage of his headed goals in MLS (2 out of 15 in 2011, but I don't know about the other years), but I'm pretty sure it's higher.

If nothing else, it's worth a "huh?!" moment.

Check out the clips:

The first goal in their latest 3 goal romp over Juniors:

His first for the Millos:

And his second...(the celebration comes before the goal in the video for some strange reason):

The brace against bogota (first one's the header, a nice one too):

And last, Fredy decides to finish with his foot against Deportivo Pasto:
