José Orlando Martínez Peña (born September 30, 1979 in El Salvador) is a retired Salvadoran football player, who most prominently played as a forward for Luis Ángel Firpo.

Club career[edit]

Nicknamed Chepe, Martínez came through the Instituto Nacional de Apopa to earn himself a contract with Atlético Marte in 2000. He then had a short spell at San Salvador F.C. before joining Luis Ángel Firpo with whom he spent a couple of years. In 2007 he moved to Alianza, only for him to return to Marte two years later.[1]

In 2010 he apparently finished his career to take up cycling,[2] but in 2011 he took up coaching youth players.[3]

He has represented his country in 7 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[4] and played at the 2007 UNCAF Nations Cup[5] as well as at the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[6]
