Career[edit]

Club career[edit]

Silva began his career in the youth ranks of Club Cerro Corá. In 2000, he made his professional debut with Club Cerro Corá, and was signed by Club Libertad in 2003. During the 2004 Copa Libertadores, Silva helped Libertad to a famous 1–0 win over Argentine club River Plate in a match played at Defensores del Chaco on April 7.[5] Argentina's Clarín raved about Silva's performance, stating: "The goalkeeper Anthony Silva was the big star: he closed off all roads to the Argentines."[6]

After being primarily the reserve goalkeeper for Libertad, Silva joined General Caballero on loan during the 2005 season. Silva's rights were purchased by Italian club Genoa but never officially joined the Italian side.[7]

In 2006 Silva signed with Club 2 de Mayo and established himself as the teams' main goalkeeper. After an impressive season with the club, Harry Redknapp brought Antony Silva on trial at Portsmouth.[8] Silva could not agree to terms, and decided to sign for Club Tacuary of Paraguay.[9] After an impressive season with Club Tacuary in which he played in the Copa Libertadores, Silva left Paraguay and was signed by Argentine side Talleres de Córdoba. Silva only played 7 games for Talleres in 2008, and in 2009 moved to Brazil to play for Marília Atlético Clube.[10]

After a brief spell in Brazil, Silva returned to Paraguay and signed for Club Rubio Ňú and quickly established himself as the main goalkeeper. On 29 January 2010 Silva was suspended by the Paraguayan Football Federation for doping, which Silva denied.[11] Following the suspension it was reported that New York Red Bulls was interested in Silva.[12][13]

Afterwards Silva signed in June 2010 with Deportes Tolima of Colombia, with which Silva played 140 matches. Silva was signed by Club Atlético 3 de Febrero in mid-June. For 2015, Silva returned to Colombia where he played with Independiente Medellín.

He signed with Cerro Porteño as a reinforcement for the 2016 Copa Libertadores.[14]

International career[edit]

Silva has represented Paraguay at various youth levels. In 2001 Silva participated for Paraguay in the Under-17 World Cup and in 2003 participated in the Under-20 World Cup helping his nation reach the knock out stages. He played 3 matches in the 2003 Pan American Games. He was part of the squad that played in the 2015 Copa América, where he played 2 matches.
