Club career[edit]


Carbonero began his career in in the Categoría Primera B with Academia. Due to his impressive performances, he was sold to first division team, Atletico Huila.

In the month of January 2011, it was confirmed that Carbonero would join Once Caldas. This meant that he would dispute the 2011 Copa Libertadores. His consistency and high potential would be taken notice by Argentinian side, Estudiantes de La Plata.


Eventually, he signed for Estudiantes in 2011. He would only make 10 league appearances before going on loan to Arsenal de Sarandí.

He noticeably scored a goal for Arsenal in the 2012 edition of the Copa Libertadores, the match being a 3-0 triumph against Zamora. This was his first goal for the club in all competitions. Finally, he netted a goal in the 2012 Tornero Clausura against San Martín in an away game that ended 4-1 favoring Arsenal. Carbonero would be a fundamental part of Arsenal, helping them earn their first league title in history as they won 2012 Tornero Clausura. In the 2012 Supercopa Argentina, Carbonero failed to score in the penalty shoot-out against Boca Juniors. Despite this, Arsenal were still able to beat Boca 4-3 thus claiming the title.

On June 4, 2013, it was confirmed that Carbonero would go on loan once more, this time to play for Argentine giant River Plate.

International career[edit]

Carbonero made his first appearance for Colombia in 2011. In 2014, he was named the surprising late replacement for Aldo Leão Ramírez for Colombia's 2014 FIFA World Cup squad by José Pékerman. He played in one match (45 minutes versus Japan).[1]
