Jared Francisco Borgetti Echeverría (born 14 August 1973) is a Mexicanmarker footballer who currently plays for Puebla. Borgetti is the all-time leading goal scorer for the Mexican national team, with 46 goals. A prolific goal scorer at club level, Borgetti is renowned for his heading ability.

Club career

Borgetti began his young career with Atlas in the Primera División de México on 6 March 1994 debuting in a 3–1 loss over Club América. After two successful seasons, he signed with Santos Laguna, where he claimed three golden boot titles for most goals in the season in his seven year participation with club. With Santos, he won two league championships. Borgetti later signed a one-year contract with promoted team Dorados de Sinaloa, where he stated he wanted to play in his home team, before joining Pachuca, where he had little activity due to the qualifying games for the World Cup.

In the summer of 2005, Borgetti signed with English club Bolton Wanderers in the FA Premier League. He became the first Mexican player to play for an English club.

He made his official English debut in a 2–0 win over Newcastle United on 24 August 2005 and scored his first goal for the club during Bolton's first-ever UEFA Cup tie against Lokomotiv Plovdiv on 15 September 2005, and scored again in the competition against Besiktas on 20 October 2005. He went on to score in the FA Cup against Watford and in the Carling Cup against West Ham and Leicester City. Having also scored two league goals against Manchester City and Charlton Athletic, Borgetti ended the season with seven goals in all competitions.

After the 2005-06 season, Borgetti was released by Bolton. He eventually signed with Saudi Arabianmarker club Al-Ittihad. He made his debut on 9 September 2006, scoring two goals in a 3–2 victory over Saudi team Al-Ta'ee. In December 2006, Borgetti left Al-Ittihad under a clause stating that he could leave at any time if his family was unable to adapt to Saudi Arabianmarker culture. Teams from the leagues of France, England, and Spain showed interest in signing the player.

Return to Mexico

Shortly after the 2006 World Cup, Borgetti expressed his desire to retire from the international stage. He stated that he wanted to make way for the new and younger players that would contribute to the Mexican national football team in the future. However, he has been contacted and reconsidered by the Mexican Federation due to his outstanding play in Monterrey.

In mid-December 2006, Santos Laguna showed interest in signing Borgetti and Francisco Fonseca, but unfortunately, days later, Club América signed Vicente Matias Vuoso on loan to Santos. Borgetti and Fonseca turned down the club's offer and later announced that he would return to Mexico as a member of Cruz Azul under a one-year contract. In 2007, Borgetti was called upon by Hugo Sánchez to represent Mexico in a series of international friendly matches and tournaments.

On 21 December 2007, it was officially announced that Borgetti would play for Monterrey for the next six months in the Mexican Clausura 2008 tournament. Borgetti scored his first goal with the Rayados in the Clásico Regiomontano against UANL Tigres, where Tigres won 3–2.

Chivas de Guadalajara

Starting on 14 January 2009, Borgetti played for Guadalajara for six months. He was brought especially to play in the 2009 Copa Libertadores. He always stated that he had accomplished one of his dreams as a footballer, to be on a team where all of the players were Mexican-born and to be on a team with more championships in the Primera División. Borgetti played seven games in the Torneo Clausura 2009 as a starter and six as a sub, barely recording 220 minutes for the club. In the Copa Libertadores, he played six out of the six games, three as a starter and three as a sub, playing a total of 366 minutes.

Puebla

Since his departure from Guadalajara, Borgetti has gone on to sign with Puebla as of 13 June 2009 in time for the Apertura 2009 Tournament. In a pre-season game, Borgetti suffered a broken ribcage and had to sit out for the first four weeks of the Apertura Tournament. He scored his first goal on 9 August 2009 against Querétaro. He continued his good form by scoring a header on 22 August 2009, in a 2–1 win against Pachuca.

International career

On the international stage, Borgetti first played with Mexico on 5 February 1997 against Ecuador. He would not make his mark internationally, however, until the qualification campaign for the 2002 FIFA World Cup began in late 2000. After the qualification campaign proved successful for Mexico, Borgetti became a regular starter within the squad and went on to score goals for his country at the 2001 Copa América, the 2002 World Cup, and the 2004 Copa América.

Borgetti's most successful tournament was the 2005 FIFA Confederations Cup. He scored three goals against Brazil and Germany and helped Mexico to a fourth place finish, and his skill of scoring from headers drew the attention of football pundits worldwide. He also provided a memorable moment of the tournament when he had to retake a penalty twice against Brazil due to various infractions. It was blocked on the third attempt, but he later scored the winning goal that resulted in a 1–0 upset. After these performances, Borgetti attracted attention from many foreign clubs, and chose a deal with Bolton Wanderers.

Borgetti has enjoyed notable success on both the club and international level. After the qualification campaign for the 2006 World Cup ended, Borgetti became his country's top goal scorer, surpassing both Luis Hernández and Carlos Hermosillo with a record 43 goals in the 87 international appearances.

On 25 March 2007, Borgetti came off the bench, replacing Omar Bravo in a match against Paraguay. Borgetti scored two goals within 20 seconds. On 8 June 2007, Borgetti played in the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup, scoring two goals. He also scored a goal in the quarter-finals against Costa Rica. In the final against the United States, Borgetti injured himself, and could not participate in the 2007 Copa América, where the Mexican national team reached the third place in the Competition against Brazil and Argentina, beating Uruguay in the semi-finals of the Copa América.
