Wason Renteria

Wason Libardo Renteria Cuesta (born 4 July 1985 in Quibdo) is a Colombian footballer currently playing for Sporting de Braga in the Portuguese first division, as a striker.

Renteria began professionally with Chico FC, in 2004. The following year, he was included in the Colombian team that took part in the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship.

After his performances with the U-20 national side, Renteria was transferred to Internacional in Brazil. There, he showed his flair, usually coming off the bench to score goals in a series of pivotal situations, the first being one that earned a quarterfinal berth in the 2006 Libertadores Cup (which the club would eventually win), at Uruguay's Club Nacional de Football - Renteria hit the ball over an oncoming defender's head with his right foot and first timed it past the goalkeeper with his left one. Despite often playing backup to Rafael Sobis, who would then move to Real Betis, he became an important offensive element and a fan favourite, as he also engaged in energetic goal celebrations.
