Jorge Hernández González (born February 22, 1988) is a Mexican football midfielder who currently plays for Santos de Guápiles in Costa Rica.

Career[edit]

Born in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Hernández was signed along with fellow Mexican U-17 national Efraín Juárez by Barcelona in 2006 after impressing the Spanish giants during the 2005 FIFA U-17 World Championship.[1] However, due to Spanish registration rules limiting the number of non-EU players in club squads, neither of the pair were able to be registered for the Barcelona B-team, forcing Barcelona to loan them out to Tercera División team Barbate. Hernández soon grew unhappy with Spanish fourth-tier football and returned to Atlas after the 2007 CONCACAF U20 Tournament in Mexico (where Mexico qualified for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup).[2]

International career[edit]

He also played for the Mexican national team, which qualified for the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada.
