Pérez was the starting goalkeeper at the 2002 FIFA World Cup for Mexico, where, overall, he delivered some good performances. Something unexpected happened at the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

In fact, Guillermo Ochoa, who is another legendary Mexican keeper, was expected to be the starting goalie at the tournament. By the way, at 1xBet you can always wager on the FIFA World Cup too. However, coach Javier Aguirre had other ideas. He selected Óscar Pérez in a move that shocked Mexican fans. Okay, maybe he was going as 3rd keeper. But no, Aguirre decided to trust Pérez the starting goalkeeper spot, where he performed quite well.
