Carlos Alberto Cáceda Ollaguez (born 27 September 1991) is a Peruvian footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Melgar.[2] Cáceda is known as a secured goal-stopper with quick reflexes and a speedy pace to rush off his line. He played all games when Universitario under-20 squad won the 2011 U-20 Copa Libertadores.[3]

Club career[edit]

Cáceda began his senior career with Alianza Atlético in 2008.[2] He was given his Torneo Descentralizado league debut by manager Teddy Cardama in Round 14 (Apertura).[4] Cáceda entered the match for the sent-off Jorge Rivera in 22nd minute but could not help his side avoid the 1–4 defeat at home to Coronel Bolognesi.[4] The match was his only league appearance with the Sullana club.[2]

Then in January 2011 Cáceda joined Universitario de Deportes' first team. However, in his first season he mainly played in the reserves. Cáceda also featured for the Universitario U20 side that won the 2011 U-20 Copa Libertadores.[3] He played in all the matches including the final against Boca Juniors.[3] Later that year he made his league debut for the senior team on 5 November playing from the start in the 0–0 draw at home against Inti Gas Deportes.[5]

International career[edit]

In November 2012 Cáceda received his first call to join the Peruvian national team led by then manager Sergio Markarián.[6] At the time, however, he did not participate in the friendly match against Honduras.[7]

In May 2018 he was named in Peru’s provisional 24 man squad for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.[8]
