Brent Latham: Carlos Vela's Mexico withdrawal not yet a national emergency

It is safe to say that Mexican forward Carlos Vela has settled in quite nicely with Real Sociedad after finally getting a full transfer from Arsenal this past summer.

The constantly loaned forward found the net again for his new permanent home, as his 45th-minute goal pulled Sociedad level with Deportivo La Coruna and forced a 1-1 draw on Sunday. Vela bodied off a defender to run onto an errant touch, cut inside the box and blasted a left-footed shot inside the far post to score his eighth goal of the season and his sixth goal in his last eight league games.

The 23-year-old Vela, who has started 16 of Sociedad's 19 La Liga matches, is closing in on his single-season high of 12 goals. He set that mark last year while on loan with Sociedad from the Gunners.
