Horacio Casarin is one of Mexico’s most influential and famous players. Casarin controlled the ball in style because he started his career as a defender. However, he was quickly moved to the striker position. He was a goal machine and grabbed a total of 236, 15 of those with El Tri.
Salvador Reyes played in three World Cups (1958, 1962 and 1966) and became the top scorer of Mexican club Chivas de Guadalajara with 122 goals to his count. He was very quick, accurate and a superb dribbler.
Francisco Palencia represented El Tri in three Gold Cups, two World Cups and two Confederations Cups, including the 1999 edition that Mexico won. He had a powerful long-distance shot with the right foot. El Gatillero scored 12 times in 80 appearances.
Ricardo Pelaez was a specialist when it came to headers. He was always in the right spot inside the box when the team had a corner kick. A quick and intuitive player, Pelaez sent the ball away 16 times in 43 games, including two in the 1998 World Cup against South Korea and the Netherlands.
Luis Flores was one of the first Mexican footballers to join a Spanish club. In 1986 he left Pumas for Sporting de Gijon and two years later he wore the Valencia jersey. Flores played 62 times with El Tri and scored 29 goals, three of them in the 1994 World Cup qualification. He could shoot with both feet and solve a play from inside or outside the box with ease.
