Facundo Hernán Quiroga (born 10 January 1978 in San Luis) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for All Boys in the Argentine Primera División. Mainly a central defender, he can also play in the right flank.
Quiroga began his footballing career at Newell's Old Boys in the Argentine League in 1997. The following year he was signed by Portuguese club Sporting Clube de Portugal, which he represented six seasons, with a season-long loan at Italian side S.S.C. Napoli in 2000–01. He was relatively important in the Lisbon club's 2000 conquest of the national championship, playing alongside another Newell's graduate Aldo Duscher who also signed in 1998; at Napoli he played with former Sporting teammate Luís Vidigal, as the club was eventually relegated from Serie A.
In 2004 Quiroga was signed by VfL Wolfsburg, a team that signed a number of Argentine players in that timeframe (Diego Klimowicz, Andrés D'Alessandro, Juan Carlos Menseguez and Oscar Ahumada). A regular in the lineups during 2004–07, he only appeared in 12 Bundesliga matches in his last year, subsequently returning to Argentina and joining Club Atlético River Plate.
32-year-old Quiroga moved to Club Atlético Huracán in 2010.
