Raimundo Aguilera Solís (born 7 January 1949 in Itacurubí de la Cordillera, Paraguay) is a retired football goalkeeper. He was a very skilled player, known for his agility and ball-handling, which helped him achieve the record of not conceding a goal in 1000 minutes twice during his career.[1] Aguilera was known as the "Arquero de América" (goalkeeper of America).


Aguilera started his career in the youth divisions of Club Guaraní and eventually made it to the first team in 1965 after starting goalkeeper Isidro Alonso got injured. He was part of the "golden era" of Club Guaraní in the 1960s, where the team won most of its 1st division championships (a total of three, Aguilera was part of two in 1967 and 1969). In 1971, he signed for Brazilian club Portuguesa and eventually transferred to Europe in 1975 where he played for Valencia CF. In 1976, he was back to Brazil to play for Botafogo before returning to Paraguay to play for Atletico Colegiales and retire.

Aguilera played for the Paraguay national football team a total of 11 times between 1967 and 1970.[2]
