Selvin Hernán González Morán (4 July 1981 - 26 May 2006) was a Salvadoran footballer.

Club career[edit]

González played for Salvadoran premier division side Alianza[1] and second division outfits Coca Cola, Once Municipal and Real San Martín.

International career[edit]

Selvin González was part of the Salvadoran 2002 Central American and Caribbean Games gold medal-winning squad.[2] He scored the decisive spot-kick of the penalty shoot-out in the final against Mexico.

He then made his senior debut for El Salvador in a January 2003 friendly match against Guatemala and had earned a total of 3 caps, scoring no goals. His final international was a November 2003 friendly match against Jamaica.

Death[edit]

Accompanied by three friends, González was in his girlfriend's house on 26 May 2006, when he was shot by armed men. He died of internal bleedings a few hours later in a medical centre. He was buried in Soyapango on 29 May 2006.[3] Witnesses suspected the attackers to be members of the gang of the Colonia Los Ángeles.[4]

A minute silence was held before the 2006 Clausura championship final between Águila and FAS, two days after González died.[5]
