Rafael Marquez began his career at Mexican club Atlas after playing in his youth there. He spent three years there from 1996 before joining French side Monaco. In 2003 he signed with Spanish giants Barcelona where he has made over 160 appearances.

Marquez made his international debut for Mexico in 1997 but was overlooked for the World Cup 1998 squad. Since then he has become one of the national side's most important players.

He is a versatile player who can at right back or defensive midfield, but is best positioned in central defence. He has great vision and is very able at reading the game.
