Delgado's nine goals in the 2002 qualifying campaign were a major factor in Ecuador reaching their first World Cup finals. He was the joint top scorer with Argentina's Hernan Crespo in the CONMEBOL qualifying section.

Having started his career with El Nacional and Barcelona de Guayaquil, he came to prominence with Necaxa in Mexico, more so during the 2000 World Club Championship. He earned a £3.5million move to Southampton in November 2001 so becoming the first Ecuadorian to play in the Premiership. He was soon followed by Cleber Chala to St Mary's.

With his powerful build, he is good in the air and has the pace to beat most defenders.

Although it came in a 2-1 defeat by Mexico, Delgado holds the honour of scoring Ecuador's first-ever goal in the World Cup finals.

Augustin scored Ecuador's second goal in the 2-0 win against Poland in the 2006 World Cup - only their second-ever win in the finals. He scored again in the next game as Ecudor beat Costa Rica 3-0 to progress to the knockout stages of the World Cup for the first time.
