Daniel Osorno Calvillo, (born March 16, 1979 in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico) is a retired Mexican football player.


Osorno made his debut on January 11, 1997 in a game against Tecos UAG[1] and quickly became one of the main goal scorers for Atlas. During this time, he was one of several players in the Atlas youth system to eventually join the Mexican national team, along with teammates such as Rafael Márquez, Juan Pablo Rodríguez, and Miguel Zepeda. Under the direction of head coach Ricardo Antonio Lavolpe, Atlas became a leading contender, with Osorno regularly starting on the left wing. In the Verano 1999 competition Atlas reached the final, but lost on penalties to Toluca. For seven years Daniel was a symbolic player for Atlas. However, his form began to deteriorate after dealing with some injury problems. Osorno was loaned out to Monterrey for a year in 2003.[1] He made his return to Atlas in 2004, but did not manage to return to his old form.

After the 2006-2007 season was concluded, Osorno declared his departure from Club Atlas, with CF Monterrey and Santos Laguna showing interest in acquiring his services. On August 1, 2007 it was announced that Osorno had signed with the American team Colorado Rapids.[2] He played only 3 games with the team.[3]

Osorno returned to Mexico and was signed by Puebla F.C., where his career experienced a recovery.

International career[edit]

Osorno was called up for the U-20 Mexican national team in 1999. Later in that year he made his debut with the Mexican national team, against Croatia on June 16, 1999.[4] He has played in several international tournaments with Mexico, including the Copa America competitions of 1999, 2001, and 2004. Osorno was a member of the team that beat Brazil in the 1999 FIFA Confederations Cup, but saw no playing time in that tournament. He also missed out on the 2002 FIFA World Cup, where he was one of the last players cut from the squad by coach Javier Aguirre.

Osorno also represented Mexico at the 2003 Gold Cup, where he scored the tournament-winning Golden Goal in the final match against Brazil.[5] Osorno's final international appearance came against South Korea on February 15, 2006.[6]

He also has a regional Mexican music band called Banda Pura Caña de Daniel Osorno.
