Pablo Herrera Barrantes (born 14 February 1987, in Alajuela) is a Costa Rican professional footballer who currently plays for Cartaginés.

Club career[edit]

After playing for Alajuelense, Herrera joined Norwegian club Aalesund in August 2009.[1] After the 2011-season, Aalesund and Herrera decided to terminate the contract, as Herrera never managed to recover from an injury.[2] In September 2012, he was snapped up by Uruguay de Coronado[3] and in summer 2013 he joined Cartaginés.[4]

In December 2014, Cartaginés declared they could lose the player over a legal battle with former club Alajuelense.[5]

International career[edit]

Herrera played at the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup in Canada.[6]

He made his senior debut for Costa Rica in a friendly against Peru on 22 August 2007.[7] He scored his first goal in a 2010 FIFA World Cup qualifying match against the United States on 3 June 2009.
