Jesus Molina has developed into one of the most effective defensive midfielders in the Mexican league in recent years. The 25-year-old started out at Tigres, but has blossomed since moving to Club America, where his performances have earned him a place in the national squad.


Although Molina is not yet an automatic choice in the Mexican team, he has acquitted himself well whenever called upon, which has so far tended to be in friendly games.


With the FIFA Confederations Cup Brazil 2013 around the corner, the industrious midfielder will be determined to show he is cut out for life at the very top.
