Edwin Rolando Tenorio Montaño (born 16 June 1976 in Esmeraldas) is an Ecuadorian football midfielder who currently plays as a defensive midfielder for Deportivo Quito.

Club career[edit]

Before playing for his current club, Tenorio played for Sociedad Deportiva Aucas, Barcelona Sporting Club and LDU Quito where he was part of the squad that won the 2007 league championship. On June 26, 2009 he signed for Colombian club Deportivo Pereira.

International career[edit]

Between 1998 and 2007 he won 78 caps for Ecuador[2] and was called up to the squad to participate in the 2002 FIFA World Cup and the 2006 World Cup. In both tournaments, he formed part of the starting line up. He was named deputy captain for the national side in an August 2006 friendly against South American rivals, Peru. The game ended in a 1–1 draw. He made his debut for the national squad on October 14, 1998 with a loss (1–5) in a friendly against Brazil.

Tenorio is known for his combative spirit on and off the field. While he never scored for the senior team, he has displayed on occasion a tremendously powerful shot and set up a few goals for his offensive teammates.
