He started at domestic club Defensor and was chosen as the best player in the 1997 World Youth Cup Finals. His performances earned him a move to Valencia for the 1997-1998 season but he failed to break into the first team and left after only one season for Sevilla. He broke into the national team in the Confederations Cup making his debut in December 1997 against the United Arab Emirates and has been a regular squad member ever since. He is a quick runner with the ball but struggles against quality defenders and may only play from the bench.
