There is no doubt that the legendary goalkeeper Jorge Campos was a historic one for the Mexican soccer and world soccer also, he met the best players in the world, did commercials for the best clothing brands and was an inspiration for many young goalkeepers of his time. Jorge Campos was so decisive in his position and so great at world level that in 1993, he received the award for the third best goalkeeper in the world, competing with the legendary Peter Schmeichel of Denmark and Sergio Goycochea of Argentina.

The eccentricity of the Mexican goalkeeper was such that everyone enjoyed the spectacle he generated for the fans, all of this was reflected in the 90s, when his multi-colored uniforms were sold all over the world. Something very similar to the famous bulldog jerseys that Paraguayan goalkeeper Chilavert wore.

But goalkeeper Jorge Campos was not only great under the goal, but he also had an impressive quality, he was an excellent striker and always looked for a way to play half time as a goalkeeper and half time as a forward, something that many coaches did not like, but they had to put up with it as it was a show that drove the fans crazy. Even many fans even said that Jorge Campos was a better forward than a goalkeeper.

Today most people agree that the best goalkeeper in CONCACAF history is the Tico, Keylor Navas, but without a doubt the goalkeeper who would be on a par with him is the Mexican Jorge Campos.
