    MEXICO CITY – After five years with Club America, it was announced late Wednesday that team captain Aquivaldo Mosquera is returning to Pachuca, the club which launched his career in Mexican football.

    The Colombian defender, 32, made 196 appearances for the Aguilas since arriving from Spain’s Sevilla in 2009. 

    He is best known for scoring an 89th minute equalizer in the second leg of the epic 2013 Mexican Clausura final against Cruz Azul.  Club America would end up capturing the title on penalty kicks after goalkeeper Moises Muñoz netted with a stoppage-time header to level the aggregate score at 2-2.

    With the Pachuca from 2005-2007, Mosquera won a pair of domestic league titles (2006 Clausura, 2007 Clausura), the CONCACAF Champions Cup (2007) and Copa Sudamericana (2006).

    Though he took the field four times in qualifying the for the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Mosquera was not included on Colombia’s final roster.
