He is regarded as one of the greats of Salvadoran football.
Magaña made his debut aged 18 against Deportivo Saprissa in Costa Rica, coming on as a sub for Humberto Pérez. He played for several Salvadoran top level sides, most prominently for hometown club FAS, and also had spells in Guatemala and Canada. He finished his career with Alianza in January 1975.
During his stay at USAC, he earned himself an economy degree.
Nicknamed Araña (spider) and even El Gran Salvadoreño (the great Salvadoran), Magaña represented his country at their first ever World Cup, the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico, the final match against the Soviet Union also being his final international. Like his idol, the legendary Lev Yashin, Magaña also dressed in black and wore caps.
He managed the national side in four different periods, making his debut against Guatemala in 1976. One of his last tricks was to lead Atlético Marte back in the Premier Division after years in the doldrums.
