Saragosa is one of the Five Soldiers of the Aztec Sun, the group of 5 midfielders and forwards of Mexico Youth, along with López, Suárez, Alvez and García. The 5 have their own way of playing soccer, the aerial Lucha Soccer Style, combining Mexican wrestling and soccer.
Along with Ricardo Espadas, the quintet spent their childhood in poverty. During those days, Espadas and the quintet once attempted to steal soccer balls and equipments from a store. However, they were badly beaten up by the guys that the store owner hired. The turn of events was, coincidentally, that very same day. A charitable institution of Japan came and donated some toys, including soccer balls and equipment. The six of them had been practicing with the ball they were given since then.
Saragosa, along with the rest, eventually become part of the Mexican youth team, participating in the World Youth. At some point before the tournament, Mexico had a training match with Uruguay, in which they lost 1-5.
World Youth Tournament
Mexico faces Japan as their first opponent in the group stage. The Five Soldiers have some chances, but because of Jun Misugi's offside traps, Ken Wakashimazu's saves, and mainly the Tachibana twins' Skylab techniques, their aerial Lucha Soccer Style is rendered ineffective.
The first half ends 0-0. The situation remains the same for most of the second half, until the 75th minute, when Garcia purposely injure the twins and receives a red card in return. Without the twins, the four remaining Soldiers successfully reach the goal with their aerial technique, and even though Wakashimazu repels Lopez's shot, Espadas manages to follow and score with a trick shot.
Japan ultimately scores 2 goals during the last minutes however, reversing the score. After that, with a draw against Italy and another loss against Uruguay, Mexico is eliminated.
Rising Sun ArcEdit
Suarez and Saragosa are parts of the Mexican olympic team, while Garcia, Lopez and Alvez had stopped soccer to practice lucha.
Before the Olympic tournament, Olympic Japan has a training camp in Mexico, and Olympic Mexico is their last opponent.
At the beginning of the match, thanks to Espadas' cross, Suarez and Saragosa have a chance to score. Their twin shot is stopped by Genzo Wakabayashi, however.
Later, Espadas gets injured and is subbed out midway, therefore Mexico lose 0-8.
In the Olympic tournament, Mexico manages to get out of the group stage as second in group B, qualifying for the quarter-finals where they will face Spain.
