Enzo Prono (born 27 June 1991) is a Paraguayan footballer who plays for Arsenal de Sarandí, on loan from Sol de América, as a striker.

Career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Born in Asunción, Prono started his career with lowly Fernando de la Mora, and subsequently joined Libertad, playing here until 2010.[1] After one year with Libertad he moved to Europe, and had trials with Italian and Belgian clubs.[2]

Sol de America[edit]

In 2011, Prono returned to his native country and joined Club Sol de América. He made his debut on 24 April, coming on as a late substitute in a 0–2 loss at Olimpia.[3] He scored his first professional goal on 20 August, netting his side's only of a draw at Tacuary.[4] He was an ever-present figure during the campaign, as Sol de America narrowly avoided relegation.

Olimpia[edit]

On 12 January 2013, Prono joined Club Olimpia in a one-year loan deal with a buyout clause.[5]

Arsenal de Sarandí[edit]

On 27 June 2014, it was reported that Prono had joined Argentine Primera División club Arsenal de Sarandí on an 18-month loan deal.[6]

International career[edit]

On 10 February 2012, Prono was called up to Paraguay national football team.[7] Five day later, he made his international debut, coming off the bench to replace José Ortigoza in the last 3 minutes of the 2-0 victory against Chile.[8]

Playing style[edit]

Prono is one of the greatest prospects of Paraguayan football. He is compared with Radamel Falcao and Lucas Barrios.[1] His main ability, despite being a 178 cm tall, is his headers. This began in the Libertad youth system, when the youth coach told Prono to throw a ball in a wall and head it every day.[2]
