Jackson Martínez Football Videos
Jackson Martinez (born 3 October 1986 in Quibdo) is a Colombian
forward and the captain of the Portuguese giants Porto.
He started his professional career in Colombia playing for
D.I.Medelin where he took credits for winning Independiente’s fifth league
title, scoring 18 goals in 2009 season.
Later, it was only a question of time when he would replace
Colombia for more popular South American teams and Jaguares de Chiapas were the
fastest and the most concrete ones. Jackson will remember his time in Mexico
for his team’s brilliant 2011 Copa Libertadores campaign, where they reached
the quarter-finals being led by this stunning striker. The next season saw him
receiving a captain armband and scoring amazing 30+ goals in the season.
Logically, the next station was European football, and Martinez
made the best possible choice not going for the greatest clubs where he’d get
less minutes on the pitch. He chose the Portuguese champions, signing a $11
million deal in the summer of 2012.
ESPN awarded his performances in Porto noting him as one of the
best signings in the 2012-2013 season.
Jackson has also been very successful wearing his national team’s
shirt since 2009 and participating in 2011 Copa America and 2014 World Cup in
We can’t wait to see what will his next station be, only thing we
are sure in is that Porto will not be able to resist selling him in the next
year or two.
