Campos Josè

Things to Know:

This is one of the most Jorge Campos known shirts. It is a World Cup shirt and it was as usually designed by the player himself. But what makes this shirt so special is the fabric and its unique style. While Campos was usual to own design his uniforms, all of them were completely handcrafted by authentic craftsmen. But obviously all of his shirts, also if of the same style, were all different because they all had small details different from each other. This shirt was also hand sprayed in all of its colorful details. The fabric is not printed but all of the colors were hand sprayed making this shirt extremely raw and heavy as you can also see while fit by the player.

Did you Know?

On the international stage, Campos started as goalkeeper for Mexico in two FIFA World Cup tournaments: 1994 and 1998. He would eventually collect 130 caps. At the 1999 New Year’s Cup in Hong Kong, in which Mexico was invited as well as Egypt and Bulgaria, Campos’ father was kidnapped in Mexico and Campos returned to Mexico to attend to the matter. Campos was invited several times to play with the Rest of the World Team against clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, and Milan. His last game with Mexico was in 2004 in a friendly against Tecos.

Blanco Cuauhtémoc

Did you Know?

Blanco has played for Mexico at three World Cups; he was part of the squad at France ’98, Korea-Japan 2002 and South Africa 2010. He was also a member of the Mexico team that won the Confederations Cup in 1999 where he was the tournament’s leading scorer with six goals, including the winning goal at the Estadio Azteca against Brazil in the final. He was awarded the “Silver Shoe” and “Silver Ball” for outstanding player of the tournament. Blanco holds the record along with Brazilian Ronaldinho as the highest scoring players in the Confederations Cup with nine goals, three in 1997 and six in 1999. In the selection for the final 23-man squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, then Mexico national team coach Ricardo La Volpe left Blanco out of the team. While the ostensible reason given was that Blanco was frequently injured and not in good form, some people considered this to be a consequence of the previous year’s constant bickering, due to on-going personal problems between coach and player. Blanco became part of the squad that played the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup, scoring one penalty goal, and the 2007 Copa América, where he scored 2 goals also from penalty kicks. On 13 September 2008, he earned his 100th cap for his country in its 2–1 World Cup qualifier victory over Canada at Tuxtla Gutiérrez, coming on with only 15 seconds left in regulation time. After the match, he announced his retirement from international football. Blanco announced his return to the national team in May 2009. He became a regular member of returning coach Javier Aguirre’s squad, playing in all the games throughout the Hexagonal of the World Cup Qualifying. Since then, Blanco has become an important factor in Mexico’s team regaining form and confidence. On 10 October 2009, Blanco provoked the first opposition own goal and scored the second goal in a 4–1 victory over El Salvador to help Mexico clinch a spot in the 2010 World Cup. On 17 June 2010, he scored a penalty in the 78th minute of the 2–0 win against France at the World Cup finals in South Africa. With this goal he became the first Mexican to score a goal in three World Cup tournaments and the third-oldest goalscorer in World Cup history. Blanco is considered by many to be one of the greatest penalty kickers of all time. He also has a penalty-taking record; out of a total of 58 taken, he has only missed two. Blanco played a tribute game in 2014 against Israel at the Estadio Azteca, which symbolized his official retirement from international football. Mexico went on to win the match 3–0.

Things to Know:

Pérez scored his first and only international goal for Mexico under-23 in a friendly against South Korea under-23, scoring at injury time as Mexico was losing by 1–0. Óscar was noted to be the best goalkeeper in Mexico from the years of 1998 to early 2002. Once Javier Aguirre left the Mexico national team, Ricardo Lavolpe became coach, and Oswaldo Sánchez took over his spot. Guillermo Ochoa was expected as starting keeper for Mexico at the 2010 World Cup but in a surprise move, Pérez was called up and played as the starting goalkeeper in the tournament.
