Sebastián Ignacio González Valdés (Spanish pronunciation: [seβasˈtjaŋ ɡonˈsales]; born 14 December 1978) is a Chilean footballer that currently plays in the Chile Primera División club Deportes Temuco as striker.
He began his football career at Colo-Colo of the first tier of his country, in where scored 27 goals in 77 appearances during four seasons. In June 2002, was sold for an undisclosed fee to Mexican Primera División club Atlante, believed high. In his first season with that club, the Apertura Tournament of the same year, Chamagol scored 13 goals in 19 appearances and in the following, the 2003 Clausura Tournament, he netted 16 goals in the same number of games, becoming the league's top scorer.
There were rumors saying that Gonzalez was asking for more money from Atlante, and that he was not happy to be there. They did give him a raise but that still did not help him want to stay in the team. He was sold to Tigres for about 3.5 million if not 4 million dollars. In the press conference he claimed that his goal was to score over 20 goals in the season. When asked why he had chosen such a high amount of goals by a reporter. He responded by saying "Last season I set a number of goals as my goal, and I beat that number. So I want to beat my goal of 20 goals this season."
After a successful pass at the club of Cancún, which back then played at Estadio Azteca as well as Neza 86 Stadiums, both at Mexico City, Chamagol was sold on January 2006 to UANL Tigres of the same league and country. In the next season, was loaned to Tiburones Rojos de Veracruz and the Argentine Primera División club in that moment, Olimpo de Bahía Blanca. In 2008, he signed for Liga de Ascenso of Mexican side León, in where was received by several fans in his first training of the club. In January of the next year, he returned to Colo-Colo on loan, being presented like the European style by the team's captain Arturo Sanhueza. In his third game for the club, González scored a goal in an historic 3–1 away win over Palmeiras at Parque Antártica.
He joined to Cypriot First Division side APOP Kinyras FC, after an unsuccessful season in Colo-Colo, returning on mid year to Mexico for play in Atlante's filial team Potros Neza, scoring eight goals in 27 games for the Liga de Ascenso tournament. Despite of his performance and the will of the Chilean to play again for the first team and stay at Mexico, Atlante did not consider Chamagol for the first squad due to his lack of form according that club's coach, and he signed for the Bolivian giants The Strongest. He's now signed to Venezuelan club Caracas FC after a successful stint in Bolivia. After just playing 9 matches without scoring for the Venezuelan giants despite beiong considered one of the most promising signings of the club, Chamagol returned to Chile to play for Palestino in the Chilean Primera División arguing his will to end his career scoring 7 goals that would leave him at 200 goals in his career. Despite his will to either retire at Atlante or Colo-Colo, where he is considered historic, González said that he was thankful of being received by Palestino as he was willing to return to Chile. He is currently training to be a coach as well.
González was part of the squads of the Chilean national football team in the 2000 Summer Olympics at Sydney, winning the bronze medal also, and in the 2004 Copa América celebrated in Peru. He has scored six goals for his national team, being two of those officials against Paraguay and Peru.
