Club careerEdit

He has played for and skippered several leading Nicaraguan clubs including hometown club Diriangén, Parmalat,[1] Real Estelí and Masatepe. He started the 2007 season with second division Managua.[2]

ControversiesEdit

When with Parmalat in 2001, he was controversially banned for six months for allegedly attacking referee Fidel Bonilla in a game against Diriangén, despite Bonilla claiming it was only an accident.[3] In 2004, Solórzano signed a contract with Diriangén while still tied to Estelí but then made a U-turn and declared himself committed to Estelí.[4]

International careerEdit

Solórzano made his debut for Nicaragua in a March 1999 UNCAF Nations Cup match against Guatemala and has, as of September 2014, earned a total of 49 caps, scoring no goals. He has represented his country in 9 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[5] and played at the 1999,[6] 2001,[7] 2003,[8] 2007,[9] 2009,[10] 2011[11] and 2013 UNCAF Nations Cups[12] as well as at the 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[13]
