Player Profile

Most comfortable at left wing-back or on the left side of midfield, Torres helped Paraguay claim silver at the 2004 Olympics.

Though he also made his full debut that year, he did not establish himself in time to win selection for the 2006 World Cup.

The long-haired player has spent the last four seasons playing for San Lorenzo in the Argentine top flight, helping them win the Clausura title in 2007.

Torres possesses a cultured left foot with which he scored a 25-yard free-kick against the Ivory Coast in a warm-up match in May, and has also been linked with French club Lille.
