Oribe Peralta prides in World Cup on home soil


Former El Tri striker speaks about his World Cup memories, what visitors can expect from his homeland in 2026 and winning Olympic gold at London 2012.

  • Peralta played in the 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cups
  • Scored both Mexico goals in 2012 Olympic final against Brazil
  • Featured for clubs from 2026 host cities Monterrey, Guadalajara and Mexico City

Whenever his side needed a big goal, it seemed like Oribe Peralta was always there to deliver. The former Mexico striker enjoyed a prolific career at club level, winning domestic and Concacaf titles, in addition to participating in two editions of the FIFA Club World Cup™ with Liga MX giants Club America.

Peralta also represented the Mexico national team at the highest level in both the FIFA World Cup™ and the Men’s Olympic Football Tournament, winning a gold medal in the latter at London 2012 thanks to his two goals against Brazil in the final.

Having played for clubs in Mexico’s three FIFA World Cup 26™ host cities of Monterrey, Guadalajara and Mexico City, there are very few who can speak more to what it will mean to have the World Cup back on Mexican soil for a third time.
