Nicolás Armando Muñoz Jarvis (born 21 December 1981) is a Panamanian professional footballer, who plays as a forward.[9]

Club career[edit]

Nicknamed Yuyu, Muñoz has spent most of his career in his native Panama and in El Salvador, but also had a stint in Colombia with Envigado, whom he left for Salvadoran side Chalatenango in 2004.[10]

He also played for FAS and Águila, to whom he returned after a shortlived loan spell in Portugal with Belenenses,[11] and in summer 2008 he signed with Alianza.[12]

He moved on to Vista Hermosa in January 2009[13] and after a second spell at Águila he returned to Panama in February 2010 to play for Árabe Unido.[14]

In 2012, he signed for Isidro Metapán his contract was extended with a year in May 2013.[15] Muñoz, who had scored seven of Isidro Metapán's previous nine CCL goals, continued his amazing touch.

On October 24, 2013 he became the third ever player to score 4 goals in a CCL match against Los Angeles Galaxy, all which Nicolás Muñoz scored solo.[16]

In January 2015, Muñoz rejoined Águila, after Isidro Metapán declined to renew his contract[17] and in April he scored the club's 1000th goal in Salvadoran league history.[18]

In 2017, Nicolás Muñoz joined Luis Ángel Firpo for the Clausura 2017 tournament, after being released by Águila the previous tournament.[19][20]

In 2018, Muñoz signed with Pasaquina for the Clausura 2018 tournament.

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Panama in a November 2006 friendly match against El Salvador and has, as of 10 June 2015, earned a total of 13 caps, scoring 1 goal. He represented his country at the 2007[21] and 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cups.[22]
