Alberto Medina Briseño (born May 29, 1983) is a former Mexican footballer. He is known as El Venado (The Deer).
Association football, more commonly known as football or soccer, is a team sport played with a spherical ball between two teams of eleven players. It is played by 250 million players in over 200 countries and dependencies, making it the world's most popular sport. The game is played on a rectangular field called a pitch with a goal at each end. The object of the game is to score by moving the ball beyond the goal line into the opposing goal.
Medina made his professional debut for Chivas on 8 August 2000 at 17 years, and won an award for most promising player. Alberto "El Venado" Medina (at time of reporting) had seven goals in the Apertura 2006, alongside his partners Adolfo Bautista and Omar Bravo, and he was a major factor in Chivas' Championship win for the Apertura 2006 Tournament.

Beto (Medina) had a tremendous start to the Clausura 2007 Tournament, he scored six goals in eighteen games in the league. One of his more amazing goals came in the Super Clasico game against rivals America. A lob pass came from Diego Martínez which Medina controlled in the box and with a perfect technique, cut and finished excellently with a powerful shot over America's goalie Guillermo Ochoa. Chivas went on to win 2-0 at home. Medina is part of attacking duo in the pitch alongside his teammate Omar Bravo, often switching sides on either wing to confuse the rival team. Alberto has shown that he is an important part of Chivas with his blistering speed, ball control and accurate crosses.
