Justo Villar

Date of birth30 June 1977
Place of birthCerrito
NationalityParaguayan
Weight80 kg
Height1.80 m
PositionGoalkeeper

Villar made his international debut in March 1999 against Guatemala and, like the other Paraguay goalkeepers over the years, found his appearances restricted because of the dominance of Jose Luis Chilavert.

He began his career at Sol America and signed for Libertad in 2001. More recently, Villar has played in Argentina for Newell's Old Boys.

He is a dominant goalkeeper, a good shot stopper and good on crosses. He was injured and had to be replaced at the beginning of Paraguay's first game in the 2006 World Cup finals, against England.
