Carlos Heber Bueno Suárez (born 10 May 1980) is a Uruguayan professional footballer who plays as a striker for Salvadoran club Santa Tecla FC.

Club career[edit]

Born in Artigas, Artigas Department, Bueno started his career at C.A. Peñarol. He moved abroad in 2005, signing for French club Paris Saint-Germain F.C.[1] and being rarely used during the season.

In July 2006, Bueno was loaned Sporting Clube de Portugal.[2] His biggest moment of the campaign occurred when he scored four goals (all of his Primeira Liga ones) in 20 minutes in a match against C.D. Nacional on 3 February 2007 – the Lisbon side won 5–1, and the player was just featured in the final thirty minutes.[3]

In August 2007, PSG sold Bueno to Argentina's Boca Juniors, where he played until the end of 2007, returning to Peñarol early in the following year. For 2009–10 he moved to Real Sociedad in the Spanish second division, following the departure of countryman Sebastián Abreu who left for Aris Thessaloniki FC; on 5 June 2010 he scored a hat-trick in a 3–1 win at Cádiz CF,[4] as they eventually returned to La Liga after an absence of three years, as league champions.

In August 2010, Bueno moved to Club Universidad de Chile, making his debut against Municipal Iquique in a 2–0 away success which qualified for the Copa Sudamericana. On the 15th he scored his first goal for the team, against Everton de Viña del Mar in a 5–1 triumph (also away), coming off the bench at Estadio Francisco Sánchez Rumoroso in Coquimbo; nine days later he also found the net against Oriente Petrolero of Bolivia, in a 2–2 home draw and 2–3 aggregate loss.

In early December 2010, Bueno agreed to join Querétaro F.C. after playing for Universidad in the qualifying rounds for the following year's Copa Libertadores.[5] However, his agent denied any transfer had occurred by saying that the player would respect his contract until 2012,[6] but he finally signed a three-year deal with the Mexican club.[7]

After leaving the Estadio Corregidora in late 2012 at the age of 32, Bueno went on to represent in quick succession Club Deportivo Universidad Católica, Club Atlético Belgrano, San Martín de San Juan, Club Atlético Sarmiento, Argentinos Juniors (all four in the Argentine Primera División), Liverpool F.C. (Montevideo) and Santa Tecla FC.[8]

International career[edit]

Bueno's international debut for Uruguay came against Argentina on 16 July 2003, in a 2–2 draw played in La Plata. Subsequently he played for the national team in the 2004 Copa América, scoring three goals in four matches.[9]
