Luis Jan Piers Advíncula Castrillón[1] (born 2 March 1990) is a Peruvian footballer who plays as a right back or winger. He currently plays for Vitória Setúbal, on loan from Hoffenheim and the Peruvian national team.


Advíncula started in the lower divisions of Juan Aurich, the club that made his professional debut in 2009. He was transferred in January 2010 to Sporting Cristal, in an effort not only to play international trophies at club level, but also with the intention to earn a spot in the upcoming payrolls.

On 25 January 2011, an article said that Advíncula could go to the Universidad de Chile of the First Division, not on the recommendation of current Peru national team coach Sergio Markarian. On 17 April 2012, the Houston Dynamo from the United States submitted a bid for Advíncula, but the deal fell apart at the last minute. On 19 July 2012, his move to SC Tavriya Simferopol from Ukraine was confirmed, but he returned to Sporting Cristal after only one month because the club did not meet the quota for Advíncula.

On 5 January 2013, Advíncula signed a four-year contract with German club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim of the Bundesliga. In 19 August 2014, he joined Vitória Setúbal on a 1 year loan.[2]

National team[edit]

Advíncula has been capped for the U-20 Peruvian national team where he played in the South American U-20 in 2009. His senior team debut was on 4 September 2010, in a friendly against Canada. His second match was against Jamaica in another friendly match on 7 September of that same year. He was also summoned by coach Sergio Markarian to play the Copa America 2011 in Argentina.
