|*Club domestic league appearances and goals|
Basualdo won several Argentine and international titles with both Vélez Sársfield and Boca Juniors.
Basualdo played 31 matches for the Argentina national team between 1989 and 1995 and played for the Argentina national football team in the 1990 and 1994 World Cups.
At the 1990 FIFA World Cup, in the Round of 16 match against Brazil, Basualdo broke clean through on goal, only to be hacked down by Brazil's captain Ricardo Gomes, who was duly sent off.
After retiring as a player, he worked as the coach of Peruvian teams Universitario de Deportes, Cienciano, Deportivo Quito, El Porvenir, Santiago Morning and Universidad de Chile, Real Mataram.
In 2006, he had a brief spell at Club El Porvenir, in Argentina, where he was relegated after drawing one match and losing six. During his brief stay at the Gerli club, Basualdo was the protagonist of an event that would generate the total repudiation of the fans. During matchday 5 of the 2006 Clausura Tournament, his team was supposed to visit Huracán in Parque de los Patricios, but instead of being on the substitutes' bench guiding his team, Basualdo went to Brazil to play Showbol, which for many was seen as a lack of commitment to the club from the South.
