Club career

Pérez began his career in his native Panama with Panamá Viejo. He made his debut with the club in 1998 and went on to score 27 goals in 56 matches. In 2001 he joined Árabe Unido and continued his goal scoring form. In 2002 he joined top Uruguayan side Nacional. The following season he left for Colombia signing with Envigado, scoring a goal on his debut against Independiente Medellin in the process.[1] After one season at the club he joined Centauros and went on to score 29 goals in 37 matches, catching the attention of one of Colombia's top clubs Deportivo Cali. For the 2005 season he signed with Cali[2] and remained at the club for two years in which he continued with his goal scoring form. In 2006 Perez joined Cúcuta. With Cúcuta, Perez won the Copa Mustang in 2006 against Deportes Tolima. In 2007 Cúcuta and Blas Perez made their debut in Copa Libertadores, in which Blas scored 8 goals, including two against Argentina's Boca Juniors. The 8 goals were the second most in the tournament.

On 29 May 2007 Spanish Segunda División team Hércules CF signed Super Ratón on a 4-year contract in which they acquired 50% of the players rights.[3] It was valued at US$2.7 million, with Blas Perez earning 60 thousand dollars per month. Perez enjoyed a brief stay in Spain in which he scored 4 goals in 16 matches.

On 18 January 2008 he signed with UANL Tigres, his 7th club in his career and first in Mexico.[4] He played for Pachuca for the 2009 Clausura in a loan deal after Miguel Sabah's transfer to Pachuca did not work out.[5] He enjoyed a fine season with Pachuca scoring 8 goals in 15 matches.

After his impressive display in the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Al Wasl FC of Dubai was able to secure Blas Pérez services to play in the UAE League[6] based on Al Wasl's new coach Alexandre Guimarães recommendation. He stayed there only for the first half of the 2009–10 season before moving back to Mexico to play for San Luis.[7] After having played 17 games in the Torneo Bicentenario and 2 in the 2010 edition of the Copa Libertadores and having scored 5 goals in both tournaments, he was released at the end of the season.[8] He was later signed by Club León from the Liga de Ascenso in the 2010 edition of the Mexican draft.[9] he rediscovered his goal scoring form with Club León with 19 goals in 28 matches. For the second half of the 2011 season he was again sent on loan this time to Indios. For the 2012 Major League Soccer season, he signed with FC Dallas.[10]

International career

Pérez made his debut for Panama in a March 2001 friendly match against El Salvador and has, as of 11 July 2015, earned a total of 95 caps, scoring 37 goals.[11] He is Panama's third all-time record cap behind Gabriel Gómez and Jaime Penedo and second all-time leading goalscorer after Luis Tejada. He represented his country in 22 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[12] and played for Panama at the 2007 Gold Cup,[13] in which they were eliminated in the quarterfinals by the U.S. He ended up as Panama's top scorer, with three goals and one assist. Blas Perez was also named in the 2007 Gold Cup "Best XI". He also played at the 2009, 2011, 2013 and 2015 Gold Cups.

Assault attempt

On 23 July 2009, two cars chased Perez' car early at the morning while he was travelling along the La Chorrera highway. The assaulting cars intercepted his Nissan 350z when one of them collided with it forcing it to stop. Perez managed to escape from the attackers and sustained no injuries but his car was heavily damaged.[15]
