Player profile

A strong, mobile defender, Victorino featured in both play-off matches against Costa Rica following a three year-absence from the national side. He made his debut in 2006 and will provide back-up in the centre of defence for the more established Lugano, Scotti and Godin.

Victorino started his career with Plaza Colonia in 2004, moving onto Nacional the following year.

He spent four seasons and won two league titles with the Montevideo giants either side of a season in Mexico with Veracruz. He is now in his second season at Universidad de Chile.
