Pachuca: The 4 youth squads from Tuzos who have gone to Europe
The Pachuca team has stood out for its homegrown players, some have even gone to Europe. The work of the Tuzos in their basic forces has been hard and here is a count of 4 players emerged in the inferiors who have gone to the old continent.
1. Hirving Lozano
Better known as the ‘Chuky’ Lozano, the Mexican winger emerged in Pachuca. In fact, they recently met 8 years after his debut in the Mexican first division. Since that match, a promising future was predicted for himas he scored the winning goal for his team, at the Azteca Stadium, against America, in the last minutes.

2. Hector Herrera
The Mexican midfielder was with Pachuca all his life, debuted in 2011 and was sold two years later. In 2013, Porto bought Herrera’s letter for 11 million euros.
Since then, the player built a long career with the Portuguese team. He spent six years with the ‘Dragons’ and then came to Atlético de Madrid as a free agentteam where he currently plays.
3. Erick Gutierrez
Gutiérrez played much of his career in Mexico with Chuky Lozano. Both were part of the 2016 champion team. Although Erick’s participation was not to score goals, the player stood out for his play creation in midfield.
Thus, in 2018, PSV Eindhoven showed interest in the young Mexican. The Dutch team signed the player for 6 million dollars. Unlike Lozano and Herrera, Gutierrez’s involvement in Europe has been more intermittent.
4. Eugenio Pizzuto
It is the most recent case of a player from Pachuca arriving in the old continent. The young Mexican stood out for his participation with Mexico in the U-17 World Cup in Brazil 2019. In that contest he was captain and figure of the Aztec team.
This earned him to arouse the interest of teams in Europe. Pizzuto didn’t even debut in Liga MX. The 19-year-old player went free to LOSC Lille in France in 2020.
Two years later and without being able to debut in Ligue One, the player embarks on a new adventure with SC Braga from Portugal.
