Bruno Soriano Llido (Spanish pronunciation: [ˈbɾuno soˈɾjano ˈʎiðo]; born 12 June 1984), simply known as Bruno, is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Villarreal CF as a defensive midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Artana, Castellón, Valencian Community, Bruno was a product of Villarreal CF's youth system. He made his debuts for the first team on 1 October 2006, in a 2–1 La Liga away win against RCD Mallorca;[1] his first appearances as a senior were made with the reserve side, which operated in Tercera División.

Bruno made a permanent switch to the main squad in the 2007–08 season, and was a regular fixture in the side's callups throughout the campaign, though not an undisputed starter. The same occurred in the following year as the Yellow Submarine qualified for the UEFA Europa League, as fifth.

In 2009–10 Bruno became an automatic first-choice for Villarreal, finally winning the battle for starting duties over Uruguayan Sebastián Eguren. He only missed one game in 38 in the following season, with the club finishing fourth and returning to the UEFA Champions League.

International career[edit]

On 5 August 2010, Vicente del Bosque named Bruno as one of the three new players for the Spanish team after the victorious FIFA World Cup in South Africa, for a friendly with Mexico.[2] On the 11th he made his debut, playing 71 minutes in the 1–1 draw in Mexico City.
