Ever Guzmán was selected for Mexico's U-17 team over players such as Chicharito Hernández, who was not included in Jesús Ramírez's call-up.

Guzman's career looked like it would be very successful, but it was not. On the other hand, Chicharito did manage to consolidate himself to play in big teams and become the top scorer of the Mexican national team.

Éver Guzmán announces his retirement through a letter

Ever Guzmán, U-17 world champion with the Mexican national team, announced his retirement from soccer through a letter he wrote with the enthusiasm that inspired him to score the final 3-0 goal against Brazil in the final of the 2005 World Cup in Peru.

Guzmán took the occasion to thank his family for their support, as well as all the people who accompanied him throughout these 17 years, during which he collected jerseys and photographs that are now kept in a vitrine. However, he also accepted that he made wrong decisions in his career.

"Like that play that I carry tattooed on me, this career was framed by decisions, bad and good, but all chosen with conviction; seeking to fulfill what I always dreamed of."

In his letter, Ever Guzmán reviewed the teams he played for and the lessons he learned from each one. Throughout his career, he played for Morelia, Mérida, Veracruz, Lobos BUAP, Correcaminos, San Antonio, Hartford, and Antigua.
