Jorge Campos

Mexico 2017 Co-Captain

Jorge Campos is widely considered as the greatest Mexican keeper of all time. Despite his size, his athleticism and agility made him one of the best in the world as he would fling himself about between the sticks. He became famous for this maverick style of play and his flamboyant kits. He took sweeper keeper to the next level as he loved to adventure outside the box with or without the ball. Struggling to get a game early on in his career he often played as a striker, scoring 14 goals in one season. Once he had established himself as number one it would not be unusual for Campos to go up front when his team were losing. For Mexico he won two Gold Cups, played in two World Cups and was part of their famous 1999 Confederations Cup success.
