Jorge Echeverria was born and raised in football in Caracas Fc. After the parenthesis in the youth academy before the age of eighteen, his debut with the first team, precisely at 16 years and a few months ago, shows his great talent. At the age of 21, he made 83 appearances and 10 goals, including the Venezuelan Primera Division, Copa Venezuela and Copa Libertadores. With the national team he boasts 6 appearances and 1 goal with the Under 17 and 13 appearances and 1 goal with the Under 20, including 7 appearances in the South American in 2019 where Venezuela led by Echeverria qualified for the final phase of the tournament . This year Jorge, who has become captain and immovable starter, boasts 16 appearances, 7 goals and 1 assist between the league and Copa Libertadores, in what is to all intents and purposes his best season.
Jorge Echeverria is an attacking midfielder - attacking midfielder of FC Caracas and until last year of the Venezuelan Under 20 national team.
Jorge is the classic “number 10”, capable of doing many things and even doing well in the green playing field. Equipped with great imagination, excellent technique and very good game vision. He has to cover more roles on the attacking midfielder, even if, in my opinion, his natural role is behind the strikers where Echeverria is able to best express his physical and technical characteristics. In his team he plays either as an attacking midfielder in 4-2-3-1 or as an offensive winger in 4-4-2 (very offensive by Caracas).
Technically he has a great shot, strong, powerful but also precise. He is a player who loves to dribble, with great inventiveness, with excellent offensive movements and insertion times thanks to which he finishes numerous scoring balls. Jorge is a very generous player, he often does not give up chasing his opponent and recovering the ball, helping his teammates in the non-possession phase.
This year, after the great performances of the previous years, he has also started to have an important feeling with the goal, so much so that he has scored 7 goals and 1 assist.
Thanks to his technical qualities, Echeverria is the penalty taker and direct free kick taker of his team.
Jorge is also captain of Caracas, one of Venezuela's best-known teams, at just 21 years of age and this clearly denotes his great leadership, mental and authentic qualities as a driver of the capital's team.
Physically he is a ready player: low center of gravity, great physical strength in the legs. Jorge is endowed with speed both in the long run but also in notable accelerations in the short, thanks to which with the ball and chain it becomes difficult to steal the ball.
