:Not to be confused with Rafael Martín Vázquez.

Martin Vasquez (born December 24, 1963 in Yahualica) is a Mexican-born American former professional soccer player. He was most recently the head coach of C.D. Chivas USA in Major League Soccer.

As a player, Vasquez enjoyed a long career in both the Mexican and American leagues, playing in the early years of Major League Soccer. He also played for the national teams of both the United States and Mexico, the first player to do so, although he only appeared "unofficially" for the latter, in friendly games not fully recognized by FIFA, which allowed him to make the nationality switch later.
