Moises Caicedo’s Career so far

Born in Santo Domingo, Ecuador’s fourth-greatest city, Caicedo began at Espoli and Colorados SC prior to joining Independiente del Valle at 13 years old.

Achievement was to come in the adolescent positions, as Caicedo and his colleagues won the Copa Mitad del Mundo and crushed Real Madrid in the Adidas Generation Cup final. He additionally captained his side to triumph against River Plate in the Under-20 Libertadores last.

Caicedo only made his first-team debut for Independiente del Valle in October 2019, but he is already looking like a key player for both club and country.

The 19-year-old has made 30 appearances for Independiente, scoring six goals and assisting a further two goals, including a goal and assist against Flamengo in the Copa Libertadores.

His record for Ecuador is pretty incredible so far, helping his country win three of their first four World Cup qualifying matches.

He grabbed a goal in a 4-2 win against Uruguay, two assists in a 3-2 victory over Bolivia and another assist as Ecuador beat Colombia 6-1.

That goal against Uruguay made Caicedo Ecuador’s youngest ever goalscorer, as well as the first player born in the 21st century to score in CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying.

Where does Moises Caicedo play?

Caicedo largely played as a holding midfielder during his youth days and is very comfortable there, picking up the ball from the centre-backs and breaking up opposition play.

In recent times, the teenager has become more of a box-to-box midfielder who can make key passes and contribute goals for his side.
