MIAMI, Florida – One would be hard-pressed to find a more accomplished and prolific goal-scorer in the Concacaf region than Oribe Peralta.

Currently a member of Chivas, the Mexico FW has been a star for both club and country, having scored in all top competitions.

At the national team level, Peralta notched 26 goals in 67 matches with El Tricolor, including goals in a FIFA World Cup, Concacaf World Cup Qualifying, Concacaf Gold Cup, FIFA Confederations Cup, Concacaf Cup and the Summer Olympics.

During the calendar year 2013 when he earned Concacaf Player of the Year honors, Peralta scored eight goals in seven World Cup Qualifying appearances, including five of Mexico’s nine goals in their 9-3 aggregate victory over New Zealand in the Concacaf/Oceania Intercontinental playoff, which secured Mexico’s berth to Brazil 2014.

In the 2014 World Cup, Peralta scored a goal in four matches to help Mexico advance to the Round of 16.

Two years prior, Peralta would form part of the Mexico squad that competed at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London and was instrumental in helping Mexico take home the Gold Medal, with four goals in six matches, including a brace in Mexico’s 2-1 win over Brazil in the Gold Medal Match.

Peralta posted those same exact numbers at the 2015 Concacaf Gold Cup, once again leading to a trophy-raising moment for Mexico, including a score in a 3-1 win over Jamaica in the Final.

After scoring a goal in Mexico’s 3-2 win over the United States in the 2015 Concacaf Cup, Peralta would tally another score at the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup, as Mexico would finish the tournament in fourth place.

It is a similar story for Peralta at the club level, too. A two-time champion of the Scotiabank Concacaf Champions League with Club America in 2014-15 and 2015-16, Peralta’s stellar play in the SCCL began as a member of Santos Laguna.

With seven goals scored in the 2011-12 SCCL, not only did Peralta claim the Golden Boot, but he also earned the Golden Ball as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player despite Santos falling to Monterrey in the Final.

Three years later in the 2014-15 SCCL, Peralta would once again score seven goals during the tournament to win the Golden Boot, tying Javier Orozco as the only two-time winner of the SCCL Golden Boot.

All told, Peralta has 22 career goals in the SCCL, just two behind all-time leader Orozco.

A four-time Liga MX champion, two titles with Santos and two with Club America, Peralta has scored 166 goals in Mexico’s top-flight and at age 36 still has plenty left in the tank to continue transcending at club level.
