Did you Know?

Jorge Bermúdez played at the club level for several teams in Colombia including Deportes Quindío, América de Cali, Deportivo Quevedo, Deportivo Pereira and Independiente Santa Fe. He started his career with Deportes Quindio which was also the team he finished his career with 17 years later. Bermúdez also played for a number of clubs outside Colombia including Benfica (Portugal), Boca Juniors (Argentina), Olympiakos Pireus (Greece), Newell’s Old Boys (Argentina) and Barcelona Guayaquil (Ecuador). During his time with Boca Juniors he won a number of major titles including the Copa Libertadores and Copa Intercontinental in 2000 and three league titles (Ap 1998, Cl 1999 & Ap 2000). He was a participant at the 1992 Summer Olympics and went on to play 56 times for the full international squad including appearances at the 1998 FIFA World Cup and in three editions of the Copa América in 1995,1997 and 1999.

Things to Know:

Higuita would often take set-pieces for the Colombian national team, in all, he scored 7 goals in his 68 international appearances. Higuita’s scorpion kick trick earned him considerable media attention when he successfully used it in a friendly game against England at Wembley Stadium on 6 September 1995, clearing a cross by Jamie Redknapp, although the linesman had already flagged for offside. It ranked 94th in Channel 4’s 100 Greatest Sporting Moments in 2002. Higuita’s unorthodox playing style caused a mistake by him that knocked Colombia out of the 1990 World Cup, when he seemingly dithered with the ball at his feet near the halfway line enabling Cameroon striker Roger Milla to dispossess him and score, putting Cameroon through to the quarter-finals. Higuita described it as “a mistake as big as a house”. As a result of such behaviour, Higuita was nicknamed El Loco (“The Madman”). Higuita is friends with Diego Maradona and played in the Argentine’s farewell match in 2001.
