Former Mexico international Omar Bavo completed a deal with the Carolina RailHawks of the North American Soccer League and made his debut for the club in a friendly against West Ham on Tuesday night.

Bravo, 36, came on for the last ten minutes of the match, just two days after scoring the goal that sealed Chivas a place in the Copa Libertadores with a 2-0 win over Veracruz in the SuperCopa MX game.

Fox Sports contributor Fernando Fiore was the first to break the news on Monday night, with several other news outlets later confirming the move.

Bravo is highly regarded at Chivas, where he is the club's current all-time leading goalscorer with 159 goals to his name. But time took a toll on Bravo, who saw his playing time decrease as he lost his starting spot in the team.

Bravo's move to the RailHawks would mark his second spell in the United States after playing one year at Sporting KC of MLS.

The RailHawks would go on to rescue a 2-2 draw against West Ham in the final result of the night.
