Dorny Romero (born 24 January 1998) is a Dominican professional footballer who plays as a forward for Mexican club Venados and the Dominican Republic national team.[2]

Early life[edit]

Dorny Romero was born in Santo Domingo on 4 September 1995. He lived in El Seibo and studied at Sergio A. Beras High School. He began playing football at age 14 at Jean Anubi Football School.[3] Although he had first aspired to be a baseball player, Romero developed a passion for football and pursued it professionally.


Romero signed his first professional contract with Delfines del Este FC in 2017 and within that same season, he signed with Cibao FC. He played two friendly games against Cuba, putting in outstanding performances and scoring both winning goals.

Romero made his professional debut for the Dominican Republic national football team in a 1-0 friendly win over Guadeloupe on 15 February 2019.[4] He wore the Cibao shirt until the summer of 2020, when he played the first phase of the Caribbean Club Championship in Jamaica, a tournament that gives access to the most important cups on the continent such as the CONCACAF Champions League and the CONCACAF League.

On September 4, 2020, the striker was announced by Venados of the Mexican soccer Liga de Ascenso, as his new acquisition to reinforce the attack of the entire state of Yucatán. Romero signed a two-year contract with the option of a third with the Mexican squad.[5]
