Biography and Career

Guillermo Ochoa was born on July 13, 1985 in Guadalajara, Jalisco. He is a Mexican football goalkeeper. At the age of 17 years old, he made his debut with Club America, during the Clausura 2004 tournament against CF Monterrey. He quickly demonstrated his skill and talent as a goalie, and the young goalkeeper was thrust into the spotlight to replace injured veteran Adolfo Rios.

He would then share the starting job with Rios after he recovered from his aforementioned injury. When the Apertura 2004 season began, Ochoa was thought to be the heir apparent to Rios, who had retired. However, new coach Oscar Ruggeri brought new goalkeepers with him, among th em Argentine Diego Sebastian Saja.

Ruggeri's stay at the club was marred by controversy and unpopular decisions. He was fired after only six games into the season and Ochoa was soon reinstated by new coach Mario Carrillo. Since then, along with club and international teammate Jose Antonio Castro, he has started every game for Club America barring incidents involving injuries or national team duty. Under Carrillo, he won his first championship with America following the Clausura 2005 season.

At the age of 20 he was called up by Mexico's former manager Ricardo LaVolpe for the 2006 FIFA World Cup as the third choice goalkeeper. After the World Cup, newly appointed manager Hugo Sanchez called Ochoa into the national side as a deputy to Mexico's then-number one, Oswaldo Sanchez.

In addition to the World Cup, he has participated in the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup and the 2007 Copa America. He was voted the 11th best goalie in the world in 2008. He made his 2010 World Cup qualification debut on 28 March 2009 against Costa Rica. Ochoa kept a clean sheet as Mexico won the match 2-0 with goals from Omar Bravo and Pavel Pardo. Another clean sheet soon followed against Guadalupe.
