Jhasmani Campos Dávalos (born May 10, 1988 in Santa Cruz de la Sierra) is a Bolivian football midfielder who is currently playing for Muaither SC for the Qatar Stars League.

Campos is known for his long distance shots, play-making, technique and high penalty kick conversion rate.

It is a well known fact that he has never missed a penalty kick in his professional career to date.

Club career[edit]

He began his career at an early age with the well-known and prestigious Ramon Tahuichi Aguilera Academy. While playing at a youth football tournament in Uruguay with the academy in 2005, he was spotted by a talent scout from Brazilian club Grêmio, who brought him to Porto Alegre to join the youth team later that year. After six months of negotiations, Grêmio didn't come to a mutual agreement with Tahuichi to acquire Campos, and he returned to Bolivia in 2006. That same year, he signed with first division club Oriente Petrolero and in short time he earned his place in the starting line-up. As the season developed Campos proved to be a vital part of the team. He displayed such a great technique, that with only 18 years of age he turned into one of the most significant players in the league. In May 2009, Brazilian team Bahia was close from signing Campos, but due to some economic disparities among parts his transfer was frustrated.[1] Campos is currently the most expensive player in Bolivian Football where he receives $750.000.[2] He recently scored a brace in Bolivar's 2-1 round of 16 victory against reigning Copa Libertadores champions Santos. In July 2013 Campos was loaned to Qatari first division club Muaither SC for one year.

International career[edit]

During 2007, Campos joined the Bolivia U-20 squad for the South American Youth Championship held in Paraguay, where he scored two goals in four games. He also received his first call-up to the senior Bolivian national team for a friendly match against South Africa on March 28. In June of that year, he played for Bolivia in Copa América 2007, where he scored his first international goal against Peru.
