Diego Orlando Suárez Saucedo (born October 7, 1992 in Santa Ana del Yacuma, Beni) is a Bolivian professional football player who currently plays for Blooming on loan from Ukrainian club FC Dynamo Kyiv.

Career[edit]

Although Suárez did not make his debut in the Liga de Fútbol Profesional Boliviano with Blooming, he became the youngest footballer to play in the Copa Libertadores when he came on as a substitute for his club against Brazilian side Santos. In late March 2007, the Bolivian media claimed that Diego was about to be given a trial by famous English football club, Chelsea. These rumors were quashed that any contact was made by Chelsea giving him a trial.[1] The young Bolivian did make his way to Europe and in late November was signed by Ukrainian club Dynamo Kyiv.[2][3]

International career[edit]

During January 2009, Suárez played in the South American Youth Championship for the Bolivian U-20 team, later in the year, he joined the Bolivian U-17 squad in Chile for the FIFA U-17 World Cup qualifiers.
