International career edit

Selvin González was part of the Salvadoran 2002 Central American and Caribbean Games gold medal-winning squad.[2] He scored the decisive spot-kick of the penalty shoot-out in the final against Mexico.

He then made his senior debut for El Salvador in a January 2003 friendly match against Guatemala and had earned a total of 3 caps, scoring no goals. His final international was a November 2003 friendly match against Jamaica.

Death edit

Accompanied by three friends, González was in his girlfriend's house on 26 May 2006, when he was shot by armed men. He died of internal bleeding a few hours later in a medical centre. He was buried in Soyapango on 29 May 2006.[3] Witnesses suspected the attackers to be members of the gang of the Colonia Los Ángeles.[4]

A minute of silence was held before the 2006 Clausura championship final between Águila and FAS, two days after González died.[5]
