Jorge Campos (born October 15, 1966 in Acapulco, Mexico) is one
of the most notable Mexican soccer players in the 1990s.
Although usually playing as a goalkeeper, he was also a
particularly good attacker, making him an especially interesting
player. Often he would start a game in goal, but transfer to the
attack later in the match. His trademark neon goalkeeper suits
made him the favorite of children.
In the Mexican league, Campos played for Pumas, Atlante, Cruz
Azul, Tigres, and Puebla. He also played in Major League Soccer
in the league's first three seasons, for the Los Angeles Galaxy
and the Chicago Fire. Amazingly, Campos scored 35 goals for his
teams, including an incredible 14 in the 1989-90 season for
Campos started for Mexico in the 1994 and 1998 World Cups and
had compiled 129 caps for his country. He was assistant coach to
head coach Ricardo LaVolpe of the Mexican national team in 2004.
