Mexico’s Oribe Peralta scored the only goal in their 1-0 victory over Cameroon in their opening match of group play last Friday.

While many on the international soccer scene may not be familiar with Peralta, he has been scoring in the biggest moments for Mexico for years now.

Peralta scored two goals in the 2012 London Olympic Gold Medal game the last time El Tri played Brazil, securing the victory and the gold medal for his country.

In arguably the biggest game(s) Mexico has played in since that day in London, Peralta scored a remarkable 2 goals in a two game do or die playoff vs. New Zealand that sent Mexico to the World Cup.

“I was just in the right place at the right time,” he told reporters on Monday. “It falls to me to put the ball in, because I’m the closest player to the goal, but comes as a result everybody’s hard work.” The humbly modest striker said.

If El Tri has any chance of repeating recent history against Brazil on Tuesday, Peralta will once again have to play the part of the hero.
