Jorge Lobo Carrascosa (born 15 August 1948 in Valentín Alsina) is an Argentine former footballer who played as a left back. He played club football for Banfield, Rosario Central and Huracán and represented the Argentina national football team.


El Lobo (The Wolf) started his career in 1967 with Banfield. He made his debut for Argentina in 1970 and was signed by Rosario Central, where he was part of the squad that won the Nacional 1971.

In 1973, he joined Huracán where he won a second Argentine championship in his first season, the Metropolitano was the clubs first championship since the professionalisation of Argentine football in 1931.

Carrascosa was a member of the 1974 World Cup squad, but the Argentine team fared poorly, finishing bottom of their 2nd round group.

Carrascosa played for Argentina until 1977, making 30 appearances and scoring one goal.[1] He resigned from the national team, while he was its captain, for not agreeing with the dictatorship of Videla, one year before the World Cup organized in Argentina.[2] He played for Huracán until his retirement in 1979.
