Sebastián Javier Rodríguez Iriarte (born 16 August 1992) is a Uruguayan footballer who plays for Nacional as a central midfielder.


Club career

Born in Canelones, Rodríguez began playing youth football with Danubio, and made his professional debut with the first team on 4 December 2010, starting in a 4–2 home win over Central Español. He finished the season with nine appearances (six starts, 551 minutes of action).

On 27 July 2011 Rodríguez was transferred to Spanish club UD Almería, being initially assigned to the reserves in Segunda División B. Five days later, he was called up for pre-season with the first team squad. He still continued to appear regularly for the B's, however.

On 9 August 2012 Rodríguez reverted to his old name (in his first season abroad he was called Iriarte). He subsequently fell out of the pecking order, appearing only in 12 matches in 2013–14.

On 23 August 2014 Rodríguez joined KF Vllaznia Shkodër, along with compatriot Sebastián Sosa. On 25 September he switched teams and countries again, joining FC Locarno in Switzerland.

International career

Rodríguez played for national team in 2009 U-17 World Cup, with the 8 jersey.
