Carlos Andrés Sánchez Arcosa (born December 2, 1984) is a Uruguayan football winger who currently plays for Monterrey and the Uruguay national football team.


Club career[edit]

Sánchez started his career in his native country playing for Liverpool of Montevideo.

He joined Godoy Cruz of the Argentine Primera División for the 2010 Clausura, and was a regular starter in the team's third-place finishing campaign. He totalled 16 games and two goals during the tournament.[2]

Having been on great form for Godoy Cruz, Carlos Sánchez was ready to make his big jump in Argentinean football. Many first division clubs wanted to sign him and there were rumors about a possible move to Europe, however, he ended up signing for recently relegated River Plate as he saw it as a step forward in his career.[3] He scored his first goal for River Plate on a match against Independiente Rivadavia on August 20, 2011.

On 14 November 2015, Rayados de Monterrey announced that they had reached an agreement with the Uruguayan footballer for the next three years in an undisclosed fee.[4]

International career[edit]

On 13 November 2014, Sánchez made his debut for the Uruguay national football team at the age of 29 against Costa Rica in a 3–3 draw.[5]

Sánchez was included in Uruguay's squad for the 2015 Copa América by coach Óscar Tabárez.[6]
