Héctor Moreno is a left footed centerback who has quickly become El Tri's most trusted defender. He currently plays for Espanyol in La Liga.
MEXICAN NATIONAL TEAM
Moreno was first called up to the Mexican National Team as a 19 year old in 2007. Since 2010 his name has been one of the first on the teamsheet for whoever happens to be coaching the squad. He made two appearances in the 2010 World Cup.
With less than 50 senior team appearances with Pumas, Moreno was acquired by AZ Alkmaar in the Eredivisie in 2007. There he captured one title (2008-09) and impressed enough to be transferred to Espanyol in 2011. He has been a regular starter for the Spanish side ever since.
