Luis Ángel Landín Cortés (born 23 July 1985 in Zamora)[1] is a Mexican footballer, who plays for Malacateco in Guatemala.



Landín began his career in the youth development system of the Pachuca football club. Landín made Primera División de México (Mexico First Division) debut in 2004 with the Pachuca senior team and played with the club until 2007. For the Apertura 2007, Landín was sold to Monarcas Morelia where he served as a forward. For the Clausura 2009, he was loaned to Cruz Azul.

Landín signed with Major League Soccer side Houston Dynamo on 20 August 2009, as the club's first Designated Player.[2] Landin was released by the Houston Dynamo on 14 July 2010 after less than one season with the team.[3] Landín signed with Atlante on 14 July 2010 and was on loan two days later.[4]

After a few years playing at Ascenso MX, Landin signed with Brownsville Barracudas as a designated player for the MASL 2015-2016 season on September 2015. He resigned on January 24th.[5] ending his indoor soccer venture with 15 goals and 23 points (goals & assists).

He signed with Costa Rican club Pérez Zeledon on May 2016.[6] After a poor first season where he scored only 2 goals, he ended as second best scorer at the Campeonato de Verano 2017 in the Costa Rican Primera División with 13 goals, just below Erick Scott. He didn't extend his contract becoming a free agent.

Landín signed with C.S. Herediano on 27 April 2017.[7]


Landín made his Mexico national team debut on 1 March 2006, in a friendly against Ghana in Frisco, Texas. Landín was called in to replace the injured Jared Borgetti in the 2007 Copa América, where he made two appearances. He also played for Mexico U-23 in the 2008 CONCACAF Men's Pre-Olympic Tournament as Mexico failed to qualify for Olympic medal competition.


In 2009, Landín married his girlfriend.[8]
