Brayan Josué Cortés Fernández (born 11 March 1995) is a Chilean footballer that currently plays for Primera División club Colo-Colo as goalkeeper.

Club career

Deportes Iquique

Born in Iquique, Chile, he played as goalkeeper since he was five and joined hometown Deportes Iquique youth set-up aged fourteen.[1] He was promoted to the first adult team in 2013 and his professional debut came one year later on 30 March 2014, where conceded three goals in a 3-0 away loss with Ñublense.[2]

After completing the 2013-14 with two appearances and a Copa Chile (as back-up), Cortés was chosen as the coming season first-choice keeper by Héctor Pinto after Rodrigo Naranjo injury.[3] He played the tournament's first five matches, highlighting his performances against powerhouses Colo-Colo (2-0 loss)[4] and Universidad de Chile (2-2 draw)[5] that kept him some games more in the goal after returning the bench with Naranjo fully recovered.

He completed the 2014-15 season with eight appearances.

International career

Chilean under-20 team

Cortés participated for Chile at the 2013 South American Youth Football Championship, where the U20s reached its qualification to 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup. He played one game during the contest in a 3-2 group stage win over Paraguay, being chosen as the man of the match.[6]

Prior the Youth World Cup held in Turkey, Cortés played some exhibition games, highlighting a 4-4 draw with Uzbekistan where he performed well during the ninety minutes and saved a shoot during the penalties which bring to Chile the victory.[7] On 31 May 2015, Cortés was included by Mario Salas in the 23-man roster to face the category's World Cup.[8]

In 2015, he was included again in a Chilean national under-20 team roster, after being nominated by Hugo Tocalli to the South American Youth Championship in Uruguay.[9] Cortes played in the Estadio La Corregidora in Querétaro, Mexico for the Chile national team against Mexico.
