Héctor Raúl Mancilla Garcés (November 12, 1980) is a Chilean footballer who plays as striker for Liga MX club Monarcas Morelia. A true striker, Mancilla is not "the fastest or most skillful striker but his true threat is his ability to finish the play in short spaces."[1]

Club career[edit]

Mancilla made his professional debut with the Chilean club Huachipato in 2000. He spent six seasons with Huachipato scoring 37 goals in 106 appearances. Before the 2006 Apertura in Chile, Mancilla was sold to popular Chilean club Colo-Colo. That season, Mancilla scored twelve goals on the way to a championship. Subsequently, Colo-Colo sold many of their players and Mancilla was one of them. He was sold to CD Veracruz for $800,000. He was sold on June 16, 2008 for an undisclosed price to CD Toluca. He is now one of the top scorers of The Mexican league with 11 goals. He won the Apertura 2008 golden boot for most goals scored. He also became the top scorer in Clausura 2009 with 14 goals.[2] On 2011, he became a key player for the Apertura 2011 championship of Tigres UANL. On 2012, he was sold to Atlas de Guadalajara. On 2013, he was transferred to Monarcas Morelia

International career[edit]

Mancilla was part of the Copa America 2004 squad of Chile. After leaving Chile to play in Mexico, he lost his spot in the national team of Chile due to the lack of playing time in Mexico. His great form at Toluca earned him a recall to the Chilean national football team. He came in as a replacement in the 2–0 victory against Paraguay on 6 June 2009, earning his 4th cap with the national team, and his first in almost five years. He also played three days later against Bolivia.
