Luis Jan Piers Advíncula Castrillón[2] (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈlwis aðˈβiŋkula]; born 2 March 1990) is a Peruvian professional footballer who plays for Rayo Vallecano and the Peru national team as a right-back.

A quick and offensive right-back, he can play as a right winger. Advíncula recorded a top speed of 36.15 km/h during a game against Chivas in Mexico.

Club career[edit]

Advíncula started his career in the lower divisions of Juan Aurich and made his professional debut for the club in 2009. He was transferred in January 2010 to Sporting Cristal, in an effort not only to play international trophies at club level, but also with the intention to earn a spot in the upcoming payrolls.

On 17 April 2012, the Houston Dynamo from the United States submitted a bid for Advíncula, but the deal fell apart at the last minute.[3][4] On 19 July 2012, his move to SC Tavriya Simferopol from Ukraine was confirmed, but he returned to Sporting Cristal after only one month because the club did not meet the quota for Advíncula.

On 5 January 2013, Advíncula signed a four-year contract with German club TSG 1899 Hoffenheim of the Bundesliga. On 19 August 2014, he joined Vitória Setúbal on a one-year loan.[5]

On 11 March 2018, Advíncula was pronounced the fastest player in the world. He was clocked at 36.15 Km/h against Chivas, breaking Gareth Bale’s previous record of 35.7 Km/h. On 29 July 2018, Advíncula returned to Europe, this time to La Liga's Rayo Vallecano on loan for one year.[6] A year later, after a good season at Rayo Vallecano, it was said that club had decided to redeem the players buying option, especially after a very well played Copa America with Peru. However, because Rayo was relegated from La Liga in the season he was at the club, it was said that he would be sold from Rayo after they had redeemed him.[7][8]

International career[edit]

Advíncula has been capped for the U-20 Peruvian national team where he played in the South American U-20 in 2009.[9]

His senior team debut was on 4 September 2010, in a friendly against Canada. His second match was against Jamaica in another friendly match on 7 September of that same year. He was also summoned by coach Sergio Markarian to play the Copa America 2011 in Argentina.

Advíncula also took part in the starting eleven in the second leg of the intercontinental play-off against New Zealand on 15 November 2017. He played a crucial part in the outcome of the 2–0 victory over New Zealand, helping Peru qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Peru's first World Cup since 1982.

In May 2018, he was named in Peru’s final 23-man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[10] He played all three group matches as his side were knocked out of the tournament.

On 9 September 2018, he scored his first international goal in a 1–2 friendly loss to Germany.
