Edgar Gerardo Lugo (born 31 December, 1984) is a Mexican footballer brought up in and currently playing for Cruz Azul. His debut in Mexico was on January 27, 2007 against Atlante when Cruz Azul lost 1-0. His impressive offensive tendencies and capabilities are only held back by his own irregularity in energy levels.

His father Gerardo Lugo played for Mexico in the late 1970s as well as Cruz Azul where he is still remembered for his services.

Edgar Gerardo Lugo also played in Ykkönen, the second division of Finland, when he was 18 years old where he was champion before returning to debut in Mexico.

Mizrahi's Era

Once in Mexico it did not take long for him to be noticed by the then coach of Cruz Azul, Isaac Mizrahi. Mizrahi is known for being very cautious and not very confident with young players which could have caused him to give Edgar Lugo very limited time to show his talent in only 6 games Primera División Clausura 2007.

Markarian's Era

The year-long reign of Uruguayan coach, Sergio Markarian, brought more opportunity for the young Mexican. The next tournament, Primera División Apertura 2007, Edgar Lugo seemed to be one of Markarian's favorite substitutions. Edgar Lugo participated in 15 games (3 as a starter, 12 as a sub) in which he scored his first goal in Mexico against Puebla F.C.. As much as he had progressed in the first tournament under Sergio Markarian, his progress took giant steps in Primera División Clausura 2008 in which Edgar Lugo was an integral part of Cruz Azul's first championship team in 10 years. He participated in all 23 games (15 as starter, 8 as substitute) his team took part in of the tournament. He made his presence known in the back of the goal net 4 times, scoring memorable goals from outside the goalkeeper's box against CF Monterrey and finishing combination plays from other players against CF Pachuca and UAG Tecos. Edgar Lugo and Cruz Azul managed to be runners up against a strong Santos Laguna.
