Edwin Alberto Villafuerte Posligua (born 12 March 1979) is an Ecuadorian goalkeeper who currently plays for Club Deportivo Quevedo.
Once dubbed ‘Ecuador’s New Hands’, goalkeeper Villafuerte found it difficult to sustain a first team spot at Barcelona SC behind Jose Cevallos. In order to get more regular football, he moved to Deportivo Quito in January 2006.
With Villafuerte in goal, Ecuador beat Brazil and Argentina at home in their 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifying campaign, keeping clean sheets on both occasions.
He has 15 international caps as of June 15, 2006. Since the 2006 FIFA World Cup, it appeared coach Luis Fernando Suarez had completely discarded Villafuerte. However, he was called up for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers against Paraguay and Peru, the latter of which he made an appearance against.
