Bio

A mainstay in Mexico's backline capable of playing centrally or on the left, Salcido is one of the nation's most established defenders. He's accumulated 69 appearances while scoring six goals for Mexico since making his debut in 2004. Salcido went on to play all four games for Mexico at the 2006 World Cup, as the team lost to Argentina in the round of 16. He parlayed that success into a contract with Dutch Eredivisie side PSV Eindhoven. He's helped PSV to two league titles and became a staple in the team's defense until this season when he's become a reserve. Salcido's strong play for Mexico helped it qualify for a fifth consecutive World Cup. While Salcido is a smooth defender, he lacks height and that makes him a target on set pieces. That could pose a problem at South Africa with Mexico matched up against teams capable of scoring through the air.
