Rafael Edgardo Burgos (born June 3, 1988 in La Paz, El Salvador) is a Salvadoran footballer who currently plays for Minnesota United in the American second division North American Soccer League on loan from Austrian Bundesliga club SV Ried.

Club career[edit]

Burgos started his career at Alianza but moved to Second division side Santa Tecla to get some more playing time. In 2010 he returned to the highest level to play with UES. In 2011 he rejoined his old club Alianza.

In 2012, he transferred to Deportivo Petapa scoring his first goal and victory on February 12, 2012 against Municipal. He scored another goal on March 3, 2012 against Suchitepequez,and his last goal for the end of his 2011–12 season on May 4, 2012 against Juventud Retaleca. Even though he started late in Petapa's season he managed to score five goals in nine games.

On August 8, 2012, Burgos signed a loan deal with Baník Ostrava on loan from Austrian Bundesliga club SV Ried. On the 31st, he moved on loan to Kecskemét of Hungary after Baník did not reach an economic agreement with the player.

After spending a season with Kecskemét, he went on a second loan to Hungarian champions Győri ETO, where he appeared in nine league games scoring one goal.

He was loaned out again until the end of 2014 to Minnesota United.

International career[edit]

Burgos received his first appearance with the El Salvador national football team in a game versus Panama, with the game ending in a loss of 1–0. In his second cap with the El Salvador national football team, Burgos scored his first goal, on Costa Rican soil. A feat that did not happen since 1991 when Raúl Díaz Arce, in the first edition the UNCAF tournament, scored on Costa Rican soil.[1] Burgos was called up by José Luis Rugamas to train with the senior team in preparation for the 2011 Central American Cup on January 2010. Burgos scored the first goal for El Salvador for the year on January 14, 2011 in a 2–0 victory against Nicaragua. On January 16, 2011, he scored two goals against Belize helping his team out with a 5–2 victory. On February 11, 2011, he scored another goal in a 2–3 loss in a friendly against Jamaica. Burgos scored his first goals in the World Cup Qualifications on November 15, 2011 against Suriname. His two goals in that game and the two goals Osael Romero scored lead to a 4–0 victory. Burgos scored two goals against the "Oceania leader" New Zealand in a 2–2 draw.[2]
