Jorge Eduardo Sánchez Ramos (born 10 December 1997) is a Mexican professional footballer who plays as a right-back for Liga MX club Cruz Azul and the Mexico national team.

Club career[edit]

Santos Laguna[edit]

Born in Torreón, Sánchez began his career with Santos Laguna, joining the team's youth academy. He made his Liga MX debut on 18 September 2016 against Pumas UNAM in a 3–1 victory, playing all 90 minutes.[3]

América[edit]

In June 2018, Sánchez joined Club América.[4]

Ajax[edit]

On 10 August 2022, Sánchez joined Dutch club AFC Ajax on a four-year contract, joining up with international teammate Edson Álvarez.[5] He was handed jersey number 19.[6] On 28 August 2022, he made his Eredivisie debut for Ajax in a 2–0 victory against FC Utrecht.[7] On 7 September 2022, Sánchez made his UEFA Champions League debut in a 4–0 home victory against Scottish club Rangers.[8]

Loan to Porto[edit]

On 29 August 2023, Primeira Liga side Porto announced the signing of Sánchez on a season-long loan from Ajax.[9] The deal reportedly includes a €4 million option-to-buy, which becomes mandatory if the right-back plays at least 45 minutes in 20 matches.[10]

Sánchez made his debut for the Dragons on 19 September, coming off the bench to replace João Mário in the 72nd minute of a 3–1 away victory over Shakhtar Donetsk, in the UEFA Champions League group stage.[11] He made his Primeira Liga debut on 8 October, coming on as a substitute for Nico González for the five final minutes of a 1–0 victory over Portimonense at the Estádio do Dragão.[12] On 29 October, Sánchez made his first start for Porto, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 league victory away at Vizela.[13]

Cruz Azul[edit]

On 4 July 2024, Cruz Azul reached an agreement with AFC Ajax on the transfer of Sánchez.[14]

International career[edit]

Youth[edit]

Sánchez was included in the final roster that participated at the 2018 Toulon Tournament.[15] He appeared in four matches and was included in the Best XI of the tournament as Mexico finished runner-up.[16] That year, Sánchez also played in the Central American and Caribbean Games,[17] appearing in two group stage matches. Mexico finished last in their group with one point.

Sánchez was in the preliminary roster for the 2020 CONCACAF Men's Olympic Qualifying Championship but did not make the final squad.[18]

In 2021, Sánchez was included in the under-23 squad for Summer Olympics in Japan. He won the bronze medal with the Olympic team.[19]

Senior[edit]

Sánchez made his senior national team debut on 26 March 2019 in a friendly against Paraguay, as a starter.[20][21] In May, he was included in Gerardo Martino's preliminary list for the CONCACAF Gold Cup.[22] On 9 June, during a friendly match against Ecuador, he picked up an injury on his right leg causing him to miss the Gold Cup.[23]

In October 2022, Sánchez was named in Mexico's preliminary 31-man squad for the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and in November, he was ultimately included in the final 26-man roster.[24]
