Cuauhtémoc Blanco

The Mexican striker Cuauhtémoc Blanco spent a dozen seasons with Club América where he won a handful of trophies including the CONCACAF Champions League, a Liga MX . The top scorer in the 98/99 seasons with 16 goals, he netted 135 goals throughout his domestic league career. He's perhaps remembered for the so-called Blanco Trick or Cuauhtemiña, where he stops the ball amongst and uses two feet to hurl it between them to progress forward.

As a player for UNAM Pumas, the Mexican striker Enrique Borja famously denied wanting to play for Club America. Yet in 1969 he transferred to Club America and the rest is history. He finished as the league's top scorer for three consecutive seasons, ending the tally with 103 strikes and a collection of silverware.
