Early career[edit]

Hector was part of the youth academy of Deportivo Cali. After making his debut in 2010, he played with them for a single season where they won the Copa Colombia in his debut year. Eventually, he transferred to Junior de Barranquilla where he became a stand out, attracting foreign scouts. Which led to being signed by F.C. Porto during the winter transfer in 2012.

After 10 appearances, on 23 February 2013, Quiñones made his first performance, for Porto's first team. It was a game against Rio Ave, which Porto won by 2-0. Despite making only one appearance for the 2012-13 season, Porto went on to win the league title.

Hector went to newly promoted Penafiel for a one-season length loan for the 2014-15 season in Portugal. On 13 December 2014, Quiñones scored his first league goal for Penafiel in a 2-1 win over C.D. Nacional.


He was a member of the Colombia national under-17 football team that finished 4th place at the 2009 edition of the U-17 FIFA World Cup. After successful performance representing Colombia, he took part in the 2011 Toulon Tournament representing the Colombia national under-20 football team. He scored his first goal against Italy in a 1-1 draw, during the group stages and eventually won the Tournament with Colombia.
