Lorenzo Fernández (May 20, 1900 – November 16, 1973), nicknamed El Gallego (The Galician), was a Spanish-born Uruguayan footballer. During his career, he played for Capurro, River Plate, Montevideo Wanderers FC and C.A. Peñarol. Fernández also played 31 times and scored 4 goals for the Uruguay national football team, with which he won the 1930 FIFA World Cup, the gold medal at the 1928 Summer Olympics, and the 1926 and 1935 Copa Americas. A center-half in the 2–3–5 footballing system, he once replaced Jose Pedro Cea as an inside-left forward against Peru for the 1929 South American Championship (the then Copa America) and scored a hat trick.

In 1941 and 1942, he coached Peñarol.[2]
