Giovanni Andrés Moreno Cardona (Spanish pronunciation: [ɟʝoˈβani moˈɾeno]; born 1 July 1986) is a Colombian footballer who plays for and captains Chinese Super League club Shanghai Shenhua F.C. where he primarily operates as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Moreno started his career with Colombian second division side Envigado. After achieving promotion and playing half a season with Envigado in the first division, Moreno was transferred to Atlético Nacional. Later on, the Colombian footballer joined Argentine Primera División side Racing Club for the 2010-11 season. Atlético Nacional received 4.3 million US dollars for 75% of Moreno's rights, half being paid by Racing and the other half by a third party entrepreneurial group.[1] In the summer of 2012, Shanghai Shenhua of the Chinese Super League signed Moreno. Moreno extended his stay in China by signing a two-year contract extension with Shanghai Shenhua in July 2015.[2]

International career[edit]

Moreno was given his international debut by Eduardo Lara in a friendly against Nigeria on 20 November 2008 coming on as a substitute in a 1-0 victory.[3]

In May 2018 he was named in Colombia’s preliminary 35 man squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.[4] However, he did not make the final cut to 23.[5]
