Player profile

A centre-back by trade, Veron could also feature at right-back this summer. While Claudio Morel will push forward on the left, Veron tends to hold position and cover when he plays full-back.

A regular in qualifying, starting 10 games, he was sent off in the win against Brazil after collecting two bookings.

Veron, full name Darío Anastacio Verón Maldondo, has been playing for Mexican side Pumas since 2003, having made his name in Paraguay with 12 de Octubre.
