Rhu-endly Aurelio Jean-Carlo "Cuco" Martina (born 25 September 1989) is a professional footballer who plays as a right back for Everton. He has previously played for Feyenoord, RBC Roosendaal, RKC Waalwijk, FC Twente, and Southampton.

Born and raised in the Netherlands, he represents Curaçao at international level, for whom he is captain.

Martina was born in Rotterdam. He grew up in the south of the city with his mother, brothers and sister. Martina did not know his father, and states his elder brother was instead like a father to him. His brother Javier is also a footballer. Derwin is not related to him, despite media reports to the contrary.

Martina played youth football with Feyenoord. He then spent his early senior career with RBC Roosendaal, RKC Waalwijk and FC Twente.

He signed a two-year contract with English club Southampton on 7 July 2015. An unused substitute in the first leg, Martina made his Southampton debut in their UEFA Europa League third qualifying round second leg away to Vitesse Arnhem, playing the full 90 minutes of a 2–0 win on 6 August. Three days later, he made his league debut as a half-time substitute for fellow new signing Cédric Soares in a 2–2 draw against Newcastle United. Martina became the first-ever Curaçao international to play for Southampton and the second to play in the Premier League after West Bromwich Albion's Shelton Martis in 2009.

On 26 December 2015, on his first start, Martina scored his first goal for the Saints, a long-range strike to open a 4–0 win over Arsenal. He became the first Curaçaoan to score in the Premier League. He was released by Southampton at the end of the 2016–17 season.

On 17 July 2017, following his release from Southampton, Martina joined fellow Premier League side Everton on a three-year deal.
