Player Profile

A fast, versatile full-back who can play on either flank, Fucile has won a hat-trick of titles for Porto since moving to Portugal in 2006. The 25-year-old made his international debut in May 2006 against Romania and featured in the Uruguay side that finished fourth at the 2007 Copa America.

Fucile joined Porto on a season’s loan in 2006 from Liverpool Montevideo and did enough to earn a permanent transfer ahead of the 2007/08 season.

A hugely successful spell in Portugal has seen the speedy defender win three league titles and two Portuguese Cups in just four seasons. Porto could only finish third this season, with Fucile making 21 league appearances.
