Daniel Jimmy Viteri Vinces (born December 12, 1981 in Guayaquil) is an Ecuadoran footballer.

Club career[edit]

Viteri began his club career at Guayaquil-based club Emelec. He later moved to Deportivo Quito. At both clubs, he defended their goals prolifically. In 2008, he moved to then national champions L.D.U. Quito. At the club, he was the back-up to legendary goalkeeper José Francisco Cevallos. As a result, he saw little playing time, but was the reserve goalkeeper for the squads that won the 2008 Copa Libertadores, 2009 Recopa Sudamericana, and the 2009 Copa Sudamericana. In 2010, he moved back to Guayaquil, this time to play for Barcelona. For 2011, he will return to L.D.U. Quito.

International career[edit]

He has played for the Ecuador national football team and was a participant at the 2002 FIFA World Cup. Then coach Luis Fernando Suarez called Viteri up for the first 2 matches of the CONMEBOL World Cup Qualifiers in 2007 after injuries to both Marcelo Elizaga and Javier Klimowicz. He played the full matches against Venezuela and Brazil, respectively, losing both matches. Against Venezuela, Viteri failed to reach a half-field free-kick by Jose Manuel Rey. It proved to be the game-winner in the shock 1-0 upset at home. He has not been called up since.
