Jared Borgetti

Mexico 2017 Co-Captain

Borgetti is considered one of the greatest Mexican players of all time. He built a reputation as one of the most clinical the Liga MX has ever seen, and was known for his quality finishes. He spent the majority of his time in Mexico with Santos Laguna, where he became record scorer and won two league titles. He was Mexican Player of the Year on two occasions and when he moved to Bolton aged 31, he was the first Mexican to play in the Premier League. On the international stage he won the CONCACAF Gold Cup and played at both the 2002 and 2006 World Cups, and by the time he retired had become their record scorer.
