Óscar Fabián Murillo Murillo (born 18 April 1988) is a Colombian footballer who currently plays as a defender for Mexican club Pachuca.

Club career[edit]

Murillo began his career in the youth system of famed Argentinian side Boca Juniors.[2] In 2007, he returned to Colombia to play for second division side Centauros Villavicencio. In 2008, he joined his hometown side Deportes Quindío and became a regular starter. His play with Quindío led to interest from foreign sides, particularly from Major League Soccer.[3] He was signed on loan by Colorado Rapids [4] in February 2010. His loan was terminated in July 2010 without Murillo making a single league appearance. On 20 February 2012, he played for Atlético Nacional and scored twice in their win against Millonarios FC.

On 10 December 2015, Pachuca announced that Murillo would be joining the team for the Clausura 2016.[5]

International career[edit]

In May 2018 he was named in Colombia's preliminary 35 man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.[6]
