César Osvaldo Villaluz Martínez (born July 18, 1988) is a Mexican footballer. At age seventeen, he participated in the U-17 World Cup with the Mexico national team. His efforts as midfielder assisted the team to victory against Brazil, as well as throughout the entire tournament. César Villaluz plays for San Luis in the Mexico Primera Division. Fellow team players Carlos Vela and Giovani dos Santos, both of whom are younger than he, played with him in the 2007 FIFA U-20 World Cup that took place in Canada in 2007. The Mexico national team faced off against the national football teams of Portugal, Gambia, New Zealand, in that order in the group round; Mexico was eliminated by Argentina.


Cesar Villaluz is known for his quick rapid speed and great control while dribbling the ball. What he lacks in height is compensated by his agility and ability to take on multiple players at once.


Villaluz was one of the young Mexicans that won the 2005 FIFA U-17 world cup in Peru. In 2007 most of the U-17 players gathered to try to win the 2007 Canada U-20 World Cup. César's first goal with the Mexican Senior Side was in a friendly against Guatemala which resulted in a 3-2 loss for Mexico. His second goal for Mexico came in a friendly against China.
