Without a doubt, it was a true pride and pleasure to be able to share the pitch with you and there is nothing left to do but thank all the joys you gave us. Success in everything that comes HERMOSO Peralta!Hernández wrote in an Instagram post, which he happily accompanied with an image of both during a training session for the Mexican team.

The “Hermoso” scored 36 goals with the Mexican jersey, and secured his place in history after winning the gold medal at the 2012 London Olympics. In addition, he never played outside of Mexico, which made his footprint in the country even greater.
This was the farewell from one historical to another.
