Career Summary

HOW ACQUIRED: Transferred and signed from Zulia FC on Jan. 2, 2018.

Moreno is adept at reading the game, making quick transitions on both sides of the ball, and provides United with tactical flexibility with his ability to play both holding and central box-to-box midfield positions. Moreno, who has international experience in both World Cup qualification and the Copa Libertadores, was a key cog in D.C. United's midfield in each of his three seasons in the District. 

INTERNATIONAL: Moreno made his debut with the Venezuelan national team in a 1-1 draw with the USMNT in an international friendly on June 3, 2017. The midfielder provided the assist for José Manuel Velázquez in the 29th minute of the game to give the Venezuelans a 1-0 lead at Rio Tinto Stadium. Moreno has earned 24 caps for La Vinotinto and scored his first goal for his country in a 1-1 draw with Ecuador. In the 2018 CONMEBOL World Cup qualification campaign, he started and played 90 minutes in the 1-1 draw against Argentina and the 0-0 draw with Uruguay. He also came off the bench as a substitute in the 1-0 win over Paraguay.

OUTSIDE MLS: In 2012, Moreno made his professional debut for Asociación Civil Deportivo Lara before moving to Zulia FC in 2015 where he scored three goals and recorded three assists in 64 appearances in the top tier of Venezuelan soccer. Moreno helped lead Zulia FC to their first Copa Venezuela victory in club history in 2016 by beating Estudiantes de Caracas 2-0 on aggregate over two legs.
