Michael Jackson Quiñónez Cabeza (born June 21, 1984[1] in Pedro Carbo, Guayas), is an Ecuadorian football attacking midfielder who plays for Aucas.[2]

Club career[edit]

Quiñónez played for Ecuadorian clubs Quevedo and Espoli before moving to Santos.[1][3] Santos signed him in February 2008,[4][5][6] along with Colombian Mauricio Molina.[7] He made his debut on February 13, 2008, starting against Cúcuta Deportivo of Colombia in the Copa Libertadores 2008.[8] Michael Quiñónez scored his first goal for Santos on April 1, 2008, when his club beat Bolivian club San José 7–0 for the Copa Libertadores.[9]

On January 6, 2009, he signed for 13-time Ecuadorian champions El Nacional.[10]

International career[edit]

Despite his attention-gaining move to Brazilian football in 2008, Quiñonez was not noticed by national team coach Sixto Vizuete until March 2009, when he was called up for a friendly game against El Salvador. He made his debut as a left-side midfielder in the 3-1 loss to the Salvadorans. His prolific performances with El Nacional, however, have earned him another chance with the Ecuadorian national team, and he was called up to the squad to replace injured forward Carlos Tenorio for the extremely important last two 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying fixture against Uruguay and Chile.
