Cesar Delgado

Delgado played several matches for the Argentina national football team during its 2006 World Cup Qualifying campaign. However, due to injury Delgado did not make the 23-man roster for the 2006 World Cup. "El Chelito" also played for the team in the Copa América 2004, scoring one goal, and was part of the gold medal winning Argentinian team at the 2004 Summer Olympics.

Cesar Fabian Delgado Godoy born August 18, 1981 in Rosario is an Argentine footballer. He plays for Lyon. His nickname "El Chelito" is derived from that of Marcelo Delgado (known as "El Chelo") because of their same last name.

Delgado started his career in Rosario Central.
Delgado joined Cruz Azul for the 2003 Apertura, where he finished with 16 appearances and eight goals. Delgado made 21 appearances in the subsequent Apertura, again notching eight goals. In the 2004 Apertura, Delgado scored another six goals in 15 games. On 8 January 2008 he was sold to French giants Lyon for 11,000,000 euros. Delgado made his Ligue 1 debut on January 20, 2008 against RC Lens. Delgado came on as a 85th minute substitute for Lyon teammate Lisandro Lopez on October 21, 2009 against Liverpool FC in the UEFA Champions League group stage week 3 match and scored an important 90th minute winner after only being on the pitch for 5 minutes to help his team comeback from a goal down and settle the score at 2–1 to Lyon. This is an important moment for him and his team because this was Lyon's first win in the UEFA Champions League against English opposition.
