As a professional, 'The chief of Tepito' made his debut with America's first team at the age of 15 on December 2, 1992 at the Nou Camp de Leon Guanajuato.
But the boom of his career occurred when head coach Leo Beenhakker came to Coapa and brought out the best from him.
After passing through the Necaxa he made the Mexican team for the World Cup in France in 1998 where he scored once against Belgium and was born the 'Cuautemina' or "the Kangaroo Azteca.
