    USULUTAN, El Salvador – Forward Cristian Bautista has reached an agreement to join Luis Angel Firpo, the Salvadoran club announced Monday.

    The El Salvador international joins from Guatemala’s Mictlan, where he scored 2 goals in 17 games, all during the recently completed 2013 Apertura. 

    Luis Angel Firpo won the 2013 Clausura, but followed it up with a last-place finish in the 2013 Apertura, scoring only 12 goals in 18 games.  In the CONCACAF Champions League, however, it went 2-1-1, conceding only once in two group outings against Group 7 winner Club Tijuana.

    Bautista, who played with Isidro Metapan from 2010-2013, is expected to provide a boost to the Pamperos’ offense.

    He scored two goals – one each against the Dominican Republic and the Cayman Islands -- in five World Cup Qualifying appearances for Brazil 2014.  In 2011, the 26-year-old, netted his lone CONCACAF Champions League tally during a 2-0 win over Mexican power Santos.
