Jorge Campos

Date of birth15 October 1966
NationalityMexican
Weight70 kg
Height1.75 m
PositionGoalkeeper

A surprise recall into the squad he is one of the few players to have won over 100 caps for his country. He began his career as a centre forward at the Acapulco Dolphins and then at Cruz Azul before signing for the Pumas UNAM making his debut in December 1988. He converted to goalkeeper where his appearances earned him an international debut in November 1991 against Uruguay. A successful career for UNAM led to a move into the fledgling MLS and he signed for the Los Angeles Galaxy in 1996. He moved to the Chicago Fire in 1998. After the 1998 World Cup Finals he moved back to play for UNAM and earned his 100th cap in June 1999 against Argentina. Ignored by new coach Javier Aguirre after playing most of the qualifiers before his appointment, he was only recalled for the last match against Honduras. He is a competent goalkeeper but his preference to parrying rather than catching the ball can lead to some panic in the defence. He is a more than adequate replacement and will challenge Oswaldo Sanchez to be second choice.

Appearances in World Cup Qualification: 8.
