Aldo Sebastián Corzo Chávez (born 20 May 1989) is a Peruvian footballer who plays as right back. He currently plays in the Descentralizado for Universidad San Martín de Porres and the Peru national team.

Playing style[edit]

Corzo mainly plays at right back and is naturally right-footed, but he can also play at left back. He is known for his great stamina, his strong willingness to help in the attack, and his aggressive style of defending. He also has good speed and control of the ball.[1]

Club career[edit]

Alianza Lima[edit]

Corzo got to Alianza Lima after playing for Club de Regatas Lima when Jaime Duarte saw him. He was promoted to the first team in 2008 by Richard Páez. He made his official debut against Sport Boys in Matute.[2] After that match Corzo was a regular in the initial 11, being an important key and saving Alianza from playing in the second division.

Universidad San Martin[edit]

On 7 January 2010 signed a two years contract for Universidad San Martín de Porres.[3]

International career[edit]

He was part of the Peru U-20 team in the 2009 South American Youth Championship, being eliminated quickly by losing 4 games.

On February 2, 2009, he was called to the senior team by the then current coach Jose 'Chemo' del Solar to play a friendly against El Salvador losing 1–0.[4]

In June 2011 the new Peruvian national team coach Sergio Markarian decided to give Corzo a chance to play in a friendly against Senegal. The friendly took place on June 28, 2011 in Lima, and it was the last friendly before the start of the Copa America. Corzo played the entire match against Senegal which finished in a 1-0 victory in favor of Peru.[5]

2011 Copa America[edit]

His consistent performances convinced Markarian to include him in Peru's squad for the 2011 Copa America.[6] He made his Copa America debut by starting against Chile in the groupstages. Despite the loss, Corzo put in a strong performance at left back by not allowing chile, with Alexis Sanchez, to score.[7] His second game in the Copa America was against Venezuela in the third-place match. Corzo again played from the start of the match and gave another solid performance this time at right back. In the end, he helped Peru claim the Bronze medal by winning the match 4-1. This is Peru's best result in the Copa America since they last won Gold in 1975.
