Rodrigo Huescas is one of the most promising players in Cruz Azul, having already been champion with the U-15 team and runner-up in the U-20 final. After his great performances with the youth academy teams, Juan Reynoso, the coach of the senior Cruz Azul team, has called up the young player for a few matches. The Mexican player was in the starting eleven against Mazatlán on Matchweek 13 of the Clausura 2022 tournament.

He is capable of taking the ball from the flank, faking out opponents, and crossing or shooting depending on the situation. He has great offensive versatility and knows how to attack the spaces. His ball control allows him to go with the ball glued to his foot and if that were not enough, he has an eye for the goal.

Huescas has shined since the age of 16

For the past couple of years, Huescas has been the talk of the Cementero club. The attacker plays on the left flank but can also play in the box as a striker or midfielder. Despite his youth, he is a player who is not afraid to be a protagonist.

He was already champion in the U-15 category, being the undisputed figure of the team. And in December 2021 he fought for the U-20 Liga MX title, which they lost against Santos Laguna, but he was chosen as the Best Player of the First Leg Final.

His ability in the final third of the field has made him one of the favorites of the Celeste fans. He is not an individualistic striker looking to shine at every opportunity. On the contrary, Huescas knows how to lift his head and look for the best-positioned teammate so that the play ends in a goal.

When did he make his debut with the first team?

He has already made his debut with the first team under Juan Reynoso. The first time he was considered was in a Concacaf Champions League match, where he came on as a substitute and was able to achieve some successful dribbling on the right flank. He also made his first appearance in Liga MX on June 26, 2021, against Mazatlán.

A player like Rodrigo Huescas could be the ideal player for the first team, as he has all the characteristics to win an important position. He started his training in the U-13, was champion in the U-15, played more than 70 games with the U-17, and now he is undisputed in the U-20 and sometimes plays with the first team.
