Miiko Martín Albornoz Inola (American Spanish: ; born 30 November 1990) is a Swedish-born Chilean footballer playing for Hannover 96 in Bundesliga. Albornoz started his professional career at IF Brommapojkarna in 2007 and played there until 2011 when he transferred to Malmö FF. He has also been capped for Sweden in various youth teams, the highest of these in Sweden U21. His father is Chilean and his mother is Finnish. He has chosen to play for Chile rather than for Sweden. Jorge Sampaoli called Albornoz for a friendly match against Costa Rica in January 22, after rejecting a call-up to play for Sweden at international level. Albornoz was included in Chile's 2014 World Cup and 2015 Copa América squads.

Club career
Brommapojkarna
Albornoz began his career at four years of age at IF Brommapojkarna where he played his way through various youth teams before he joined the first team in 2007. He played his first match in 2008 in Superettan, the second tier of the Swedish football league system. He played his first Allsvenskan match in 2009.

Malmö FF
Albornoz signed a four-year contract with Swedish champions Malmö FF on 14 August 2011. At Malmö FF he took over shirt number 14 from Guillermo Molins who had left the club in the same transfer window. He was presented as the clubs new player in front of a crowd of 23,180 at Swedbank Stadion before an exhibition game against A.C. Milan. Albornoz made his debut for the club in a 2–1 win over GAIS in Allsvenskan on 20 August 2011. In total Albornoz played six league matches in Malmö FF for his first season at the club and also got to play for the club in the 2011–12 UEFA Europa League group stage.

For the 2012 season, Albornoz played much of the pre-season as right-back, even though he is left-footed and had never before played to the right. Against Syrianska FC on 23 April, he started as right-back and played 90 minutes. Albornoz continued to play at the position for the following games, replacing Ulrich Vinzents who had been the starting player at the position since 2006. Albornoz played one of his best games for Malmö FF at home against AIK on 2 July when he was awarded the man of the match award. On 27 August Albornoz scored his first goal for the club, a hard volley shot from outside the penalty area, for Malmö FF in a home fixture against GIF Sundsvall. Albornoz played 27 matches and scored 3 goals in total for Malmö FF in 2012.

Albornoz changed from the number 14 jersey to number 3 ahead of the 2013 season. On 22 April 2013 he made his first appearance for the season after his suspension in a home fixture against Östers IF. He went on to play in all of the club's remaining league matches and scoring one goal in the title winning season where he played a major role. Albornoz also played all of Malmö FF's matches in the qualification stage for the 2013–14 UEFA Europa League. He was nominated as defender of the year for the 2013 Allsvenskan for his overall performance during the season.

During the 2014 season Albornoz played nine out of twelve possible matches before the 2014 FIFA World Cup and his transfer to Hannover. He also played all of the matches for the club in the 2013–14 Svenska Cupen campaign where the club progressed to the semi-finals.
