Gonzalo Gabriel Choy González (born November 11, 1981 in Montevideo) is a Uruguayan football midfielder or striker who plays for Cúcuta Deportivo in the Categoría Primera A.


Choy began his career at C.A. Cerro in Montevideo, but soon made his way to Argentina. His first club in Argentina was Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata. He stayed with Gimnasia for four years, then had short spells with Olimpo and Quilmes, before joining Argentinos Juniors in 2006.

On the 18th round of the 2006 Apertura tournament, Choy scored an equalizer against Estudiantes de La Plata. In the next match his former club, Gimnasia, presented him with a plaque, as they were certain that his goal would deny Estudiantes a chance of winning the championship. However, Boca Juniors lost two straight games and Estudiantes then won a playoff match to take the championship. Choy's effort proved fruitless. In January 2010 Tigre signed the former Rosario Central midfielder on a free transfer. His period at Tigre was short-lived as he joined Arsenal de Sarandí in July 2010.[1]
