Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Romero made his first team debut in a 2-0 away defeat to Newell's Old Boys on 11 April 2008. In his second season with the club he scored his first goals for the club including 2 goals in a 5-0 win over Estudiantes de La Plata. Romero's playing time at Argentinos started to diminish since the appointment of Claudio Borghi as manager in June 2009. He was still part of the Argentinos Juniors squad that won the Clausura 2010 championship, although he only played in 2 of the clubs 19 games during their championship winning campaign.

In 2012 Romero joined Brazilian club Criciúma and played at the club briefy before joining Náutico. In 2013 he joined his third Brazilian club Tombense. He was sent on loan to Montreal Impact in Major League Soccer for the 2013 season. In his first season with Montreal, Romero made 30 league appearances and scored 2 goals. He also helped the Canadian club win the 2013 Canadian Championship, scoring 1 goal in 4 matches.

On 5 January 2014 the Montreal Impact officially purchased Romero from Tombense.[1]

International[edit]

In January 2009 Romero was selected to join the Argentina under-20 squad for the 2009 South American Youth Championship in Venezuela, and featured in most of the games as a late substitute. Romero did start the final two matches, a tie versus Venezuela and a loss to Colombia.[2][3]
