There are few Mexican players more popular than Oribe Peralta. Nicknamed “El Cepillo­” (“The Brush”), the Club America man hit the headlines with his Olympic gold medal-winning brace in the final at London 2012, earning himself a place in the pantheon of Azteca idols.

A player of great vision, the hard-working Peralta has a clutch of young players pushing for his place in the side, but possesses the experience and talent to cause defences problems and help his side out when the pressure is on. Now 33, Peralta has lost none of his desire to keep on scoring and gladden the hearts of El *Tri* fans, an objective he will have firmly in mind at Russia 2017.
