Delio César Toledo Rodas (born 2 October 1976) is a Paraguayan retired football player who played as a left back.

During his professional career he represented clubs in five different countries. Toledo appeared with the Paraguayan national team at the 1999 Copa América and the 2006 World Cup.

Club career[edit]

Born in Doctor Cecilio Báez, Caaguazú Department, Toledo started his career in Club Atlético Colegiales from where, after a good season, he was transferred to Cerro Porteño. He then moved to Europe where he played briefly for Udinese Calcio (January–December 1999) and RCD Espanyol (January 2000–June 2001); with the latter he was involved in a forged passport scandal which led to a ban, in his first full season.[1]

After a brief spell back in South America with Colón de Santa Fe, Toledo returned to Spain, now with Real Zaragoza in the second division, scoring once in 31 games en route to promotion and being used very regularly in the subsequent three seasons.

He moved to Kayserispor of Turkey in July 2006, winning the domestic cup in his second year. He decided to retire from football due to injury in early 2010, but returned to football – and Kayserispor – on 29 March, in a match against Trabzonspor.

International career[edit]

Internationally, Toledo represented Paraguay on 35 occasions, playing 82 minutes against England in a group stage 0–1 loss at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.[2][3] He was also selected for the squad at the 1999 Copa América played on home soil, as the national team reached the quarterfinals.

Toledo made his international debut on 7 March 1999 in the Copa de la Paz, netting the second goal in a 3–0 win against Bolivia.
