Dario Veron - Pumas UNAM (Tomás Fregoso)
Dario Veron started ten of Paraguay’s 18 World Cup qualifiers and despite being a centre back by trade, fills in at right full-back for his country. Veron’s versatility is vital to Martino’s team, he often tucks in to form a 3-man central defence allowing Morel Rodriguez on the other flank to push on and form an expansive 3-5-2. If you see Veron tucking in this summer, you will know that Paraguay are going for it.  

After bouncing back and forth between the delightfully named Club 12 de Octubre and Guarani in his homeland, and a very brief stay in Chile with Cobreloa, Veron joined Mexican side Pumas in 2003 where he has played his football ever since. Racking up over 250 appearances for the club, he has won three Mexican league title during his stay at Olimpico Universitario.
