A lethal forward, Luis Tejada certainly lives up to his nickname '*El Matador', *and is able to pounce on the smallest of openings. He is the country's all-time top scorer alongside Blas Perez, leading to a fierce rivalry that only can only spell good news for the national team.  

Tejada earned his first cap for *Los Canaleros *in 2001 and enjoyed his finest moment on the international stage at the Gold Cup in 2005 when he finished as top scorer and was named best player of the tournament. His club career has taken him to several countries, and one of his most eye-catching seasons arrived in 2011, when he was top scorer in the Peruvian top flight at Juan Aurich.
