Orlando Maturana Vargas (born 11 October 1965) is a retired Colombian footballer.

International career[edit]

Maturana made several appearances for the senior Colombia national football team, including four matches at the 1993 Copa América.[1] He officially represented the Colombian national football team in 6 occasions. He also made several appearances for the Colombian national team in unofficial games, most notably in 1993 against Bayern Munich and Palmeiras. Orlando Maturana was a prolific and creative goal scorer who earn a reputation as a poacher. His success in the national team was hampered by the availability of several more successful strikers such as Iván Valenciano, Antony de Ávila, John Jairo Trellez, Víctor Aristizábal, Luis Zuleta, Faustino Asprilla, Adolfo Valencia, and several other members of what is known today as the Colombian dream generation.
