Äl Chentzansio-Herä is a Craitish former-footballer who last played for Sverige Tiem FC, with whom he spent his entire professional career. Playing primarily as an attacking midfielder, but capable of sitting deeper and also being used as a striker, Chentzansio-Herä played 27 times internationally.
At the age of 20, Chentzansio-Herä's professional career began upon signing for Sverige Tiem FC prior to the start of the first season of CrFA League 1. After being given the number 10 jersey, he established himself as the team's attack-minded central midfielder as part of a partnership with his cousin Hjaņ Herä in the club's first few campaigns, and helped achieve five successive fourth-placed finishes and a King's Cup final appearance in 2006. While the 2008 season was a poor one for the club, as they finished bottom of the league for the first time, Chentzansio-Herä found some success as a makeshift forward, scoring three of the team's four goals that season.
Following another poor season in 2009, Sverige and Chentzansio-Herä won a first league title the following year; a triumph which kick-started what was a successful period for the club. The 2011 King's Cup followed the year after, with a second league title being won in 2012, with Chentzansio-Herä a key component of the starting line-up throughout. A third-placed finish in 2013 was followed by a poor period of seventh in 2014 and back-to-back sixths in the subsequent two seasons, with Chentzansio-Herä now utilised more as part of a rotation policy with fellow attacking players Mariolino Sonetti and Danijel Đorđević. At the age of 34, and after 14 seasons with his hometown club, Chentzansio-Herä announced his retirement in the summer of 2016.
Chentzansio-Herä's first call-up to the national team came in 2006, as he was included in the squad for the inaugural FMF World Cup but failed to make an appearance, remaining an unused substitute, as the team were knocked-out in the quarter-finals. Chentzansio-Herä was used fleetingly by Craitland for the next three years, with Yaqin Senovichi cemented as the team's starting attacking midfielder, and was not included in any further tournament squads until 2010. Following Sverige's domestic success, Chentzansio-Herä was included in the 2010 FMF World Cup squad and was utilised as a substitute throughout the tournament, scoring the third goal in the 4–0 defeat of Toketi in the semi-final, as Craitland sealed a third world title.
Chentzansio-Herä received more frequent appearances into the following year, and was included in the EMU 2011 roster as a starter due to the resting of some players by the team's managers; a role in which he thrived, helping the team to the final after topping their group and scoring the third goal in a 3–0 win over Hamland to win a first confederational title. His place in the World Cup squad that year was also confirmed, and a second winner's medal—Craitland's fourth win overall—made its way to Chentzansio-Herä as he played a supporting role in the team's victorious run. The squad for the 2012 FMF World Cup surprisingly failed to include Chentzansio-Herä, with breakthrough players Jon-Jan Jónsen and Ben Viĵoa being named for his position. He did receive a call-up for the EMU Championships squad later in the year, however, and was a reserve option as the team finished in third place, before retaining his place for EMU 2013 as the side were eliminated in the group stage. Despite remaining eligible for the national team up until his retirement in 2016, Chentzansio-Herä failed to play any further part internationally, and ended his career with a total of 27 caps and four goals, having added two more strikes in exhibition matches.
Chentzansio-Herä's cousins are fellow footballers Hjaņ Herä, whom he played alongside in Sverige Tiem's midfield for 14 seasons and also for Craitland, appearing in five tournaments together, and older brother Futbólio C. Herä, who played as a defender for Cherry Trees FC.
