Darwin Daniel Machís Marcano (born 7 February 1993) is a Venezuelan footballer who plays for Spanish club Granada as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Machís started his career with AC Mineros de Guayana, making his official debut on 21 August 2011, coming on as a substitute in a 1–1 away draw against Estudiantes de Mérida, for the Venezuelan Primera División championship. He scored his first professional goal ten days later, in a 5–1 home routing over Minasoro FC. Machís appeared regularly for the side, scoring 16 goals during the campaign (eight only in Copa Venezuela), and was awarded a prize from the Venezuelan Football Federation.

On 7 July 2012, Machís joined Udinese,[1] but signed a five-year contract with fellow Giampaolo Pozzo's club Granada CF.[2] He appeared in the pre-season with the latter, scoring three times in only five games.

Machís made his La Liga debut on 20 August 2012, as a late substitute in a 0–1 loss at Rayo Vallecano.[3] He appeared in further three matches for the Andalusians, all from the bench.

On 31 January 2013, Machís moved to Vitória S.C. on loan until June.[4] However, he appeared sparingly with the main squad, appearing with the reserves in the second level. He made two late substitute appearances in the 2012–13 Taça de Portugal semifinal matches, with Vitória eventually winning the Cup.

He returned to Granada in the 2013 summer, being assigned to the B-team in Segunda División B. On 8 May 2014 he joined Hércules CF in a month's loan.[5]

On 6 August 2015, Machís moved to SD Huesca, in a season-long loan deal.[6] Roughly one year later, he joined CD Leganés in the top tier, again in a temporary deal.[7]

International career[edit]

Machís debuted with the Venezuela national team on 22 December 2011, starting in a 0–2 loss against Costa Rica.[8] He later appeared with the under-20s in 2013 South American Youth Championship.
