International career[edit]

Banguera was called up to play against Mexico on November 2008. He played all of the ninety minutes and performed well.

After Marcelo Elizaga's retirement following the 2011 Copa America, Banguera was consolidated as the first choice Goalkeeper for Ecuador. Due to injuries, he was only able to start a few games at the 2014 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers. Eventually losing his starting spot to LDU Quito's Alexander Domínguez.

Due to his declining performances even before the 2014 FIFA World Cup, he was eventually replaced by Ecuadorian-naturalized Goalkeepers, Librado Azcona and Esteban Dreer. Subsequently Banguera was left out of the 2015 Copa America Squad.
