Player Profile

Paraguay’s third-choice keeper is the elder brother of midfielder Edgar Barreto. The two brothers were regulars for the Paraguayan side that won Olympic silver in 2004.

He impressed at youth level, playing at the Under-20 World Cup in 2001, but has not quite translated that promise to senior football.

After making his name with Cerro Porteno, his career stalled between 2007 and 2009 because of transfer issues, but he has been a regular since rejoining his first club.
