These footballers have been key in Mexican football, thus they deserve special mention.
Guillermo Sepúlveda: El Tigre was one of the toughest center-backs in the league. He was strong and played two World Cups with El Tri.
Javier Hernández: Chicharito has been one of the top players in the past couple of years. The striker, who plays for Manchester United, has proven to be on the right track to becoming one of the greatest.
Juan Francisco Palencia: El Gatillero retired from football in 2011 after 22 years of success with Cruz Azul, Espanyol, Chivas, Chivas USA and UNAM.
Luis Roberto Alves: Zague got the job done, he wasn't the most technical player, but managed to score 167 times in 436 appearances with América.
Pavel Pardo: After a long period without Mexicans abroad, El Bebé was one of the first footballers that succeeded in Europe. He was the first Mexican to score in the Bundesliga.
Ricardo Peláez: He was tough, fast and had a superb header. Peláez scored twice in the 1998 World Cup against South Korea and the Netherlands.
