Luis Fernando Garrido (born 5 November 1990) is a Honduran footballer who plays for Alajuelense. Most often deployed as a defensive midfielder, he also plays for the Honduran national team.

Club career[edit]

Born in Juticalpa, Garrido started playing for Juticalpa F.C. in the secondary division when he was 17 years old. By the end of 2007, after his performance in the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup he signed a 7-year contract with Olimpia. He made his top-league debut in the 2007–08 Honduran Liga Nacional. He played 6 consecutive seasons with Olimpia winning 5 national titles. He spent part of 2011 playing on loan at Deportes Savio.

On January 25, 2013, he agreed to a six-month loan at Red Star Belgrade for the spring 2013 half-season.[2] On February 1, 2013, he was promoted by Red Star Belgrade after he inked his contract for a 6-month loan, with an option to sign a subsequent contract in June 2013 to stay with the club permanently.[3] However at the end of the season Red Star was unable to fulfill the financial demands of Olimpia, so his first experience in Europe came to an end, and subsequently Garrido returned to Olimpia. He played 10 matches in the Serbian SuperLiga and Red Star finished the season runner-up.

On July 25, 2014, he agreed to a loan deal with Houston Dynamo.[4]

International career[edit]

As a youth, he was also a "sub" in a 2007 international game against the United States,[5] and later that year played a game for the Honduran national under-17 team against the USA.[6] He played at the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup and at the 2012 Summer Olympics.

He made his senior début for Honduras in an October 2012 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Panama. Ever since he became progressively a key player in the FIFA World Cup qualification matches.[7]

On 17 November 2015, he sustained an horrific knee injury while playing for Honduras in a FIFA World Cup qualification match against Mexico, resulting in the rupture of both PCL and ACL ligaments of his right Knee.[8]
