Hermanni Vuorinen (born 27 January 1985) is a Finnish former footballer. He played as a striker.

Club career[edit]

He began his career at FC Jazz but at the age of 18, he tried out for German side Werder Bremen, but got homesick.[citation needed] For the 2005 season he joined FC Honka and helped them gain promotion to the Finnish Premier League (Veikkausliiga). Few thought that they would survive but at the end of September, the team was at the top of the league, receiving top-scoring from Vuorinen with 16 goals in 18 games.

Because of his success, it was announced in August 2006 that Fredrikstad FK had purchased the tall forward, turning down clubs from Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Slovenia. However, he returned to Finland in July 2007. On 31 August 2010 he was signed by R. Charleroi S.C. for two-year contract with an option for third. He scored his first goal for Charleroi on 16 October 2010 in a 1-2 loss against Lokeren.

He returned to Honka in August 2012.[1]

International career[edit]

On 18 January 2010 Vuorinen made his first appearance to Finland national football team at Málaga, Spain in friendly match against South Korea after Stuart Baxter decide to call him.[2]

Trivia[edit]

  • He is nicknamed "Heavy" because of his interest in heavy-music.
