Edwin Enrique Aguilar Samaniego (born 7 August 1985) is a Panamanian professional footballer, who plays as a striker for Tauro.

Club career[edit]

In August 2008, Aguilar was sent on loan to Ukrainian side Karpaty Lviv for 6 months coasting $80,000. After the loan, Tauro F.C. could sell Edwin for around $500,000.[1] However, he missed his flight to Ukraine and was sent back to Panama.

He did, however, have spells abroad in Colombia with América de Cali, whom he left in May 2010 after being unpaid for half a year,[2] and Real Cartagena[3] as well as in Venezuela. Aguilar became the Venezuelan league's top goalscorer in the 2014/15 season after netting 23 times for Deportivo Anzoátegui.[4]

Aguilar returned to Tauro in September 2015.[5]

International career[edit]

Aguilar made his debut for Panama in an October 2005 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Trinidad and Tobago and has, as of 15 March 2015, earned a total of 33 caps, scoring 10 goals. He participated in the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship[6] and was a member of the squad, but did not play, in the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[7] Aguilar was also part of the team that won the 2009 UNCAF Nations Cup in Honduras.
