Fernando Rodríguez Ortega (born 11 May 1987), known simply as Fernando, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Filipino club Ceres–Negros F.C. as a striker.

Football career[edit]

Born in Pilas, Province of Seville, Fernando spent the vast majority of his career in the Spanish lower leagues. His professional input in his country consisted of two La Liga games with Sevilla FC, as well as 16 in Segunda División with their reserves; he made his debut in the former competition on 19 October 2008, coming on as a late substitute for Lautaro Acosta in a 1–0 away win against UD Almería where he was also booked.[1]

In the 2013–14 season, Fernando scored a career-best 18 goals (adding two in the Copa del Rey) to help FC Cartagena qualify for the promotion play-offs in Segunda División B, where they eventually fell short. In 2016, with the club still in that level, he returned for a second spell.[2]

In January 2017, 29-year-old Fernando moved abroad for the first time, signing with Ceres–Negros F.C. of the Philippines Football League[3] and being officially announced on the 17th.[4]
