    SANTA ANA, El Salvador – Miguel Lemus, one of El Salvador’s standouts at the U-20 World Cup this past summer, has joined FAS from second-division Turin on a three-year contract, the Salvadoran club announced Thursday.

    The left-sided midfielder was on the field for every minute of the Cuscatlecos’ three matches in Turkey, including the historic 2-1 victory over Australia, the nation’s first-ever win in an 11-a-side FIFA competition.

    Lemus also played in each of El Salvador’s five games at the 2013 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship, where it defeated Panama 3-1 in the quarterfinals to qualify for the World Cup.  The Central American side eventually topped Cuba 1-0 in the competition’s match for third place. 

    It was FAS’s first signing ahead of the 2014 Clausura after falling to Isidro Metapan, 1-0, in the 2013 Apertura final on Sunday.
