Egidio Raúl Arévalo Ríos (Spanish pronunciation: [eˈxiðjo aˈɾeβalo ˈri.os], January 1, 1982), nicknamed El Cacha, is an Uruguayan professional footballer who plays as a defensive midfielder for Liga MX club Atlas de Guadalajara on loan from Tigres UANL and the Uruguay national team.[2] He holds Mexican citizenship.[3]

Club career

Nicknamed El Cacha[4] and occasionally referred to as El pequeño gigante,[5] is a product of the Paysandú Bella Vista youth team. Arévalo has played for Paysandú Bella Vista, Bella Vista, Peñarol, Monterrey, Danubio, San Luis, Botafogo and Club Tijuana.[6]

On July 23, 2012, after weeks of speculation, it was announced he had signed a three-year contract with Serie A club Palermo.[7] On August 9, 2013 Arévalo was loaned to Chicago Fire for the remainder of the 2013 MLS season.[8] On August 14, 2013 Chicago Fire announced they signed Arévalo Ríos outright.[9] He was not retained following the season.[10]

In December 2013, Arévalo was reportedly bought by Mexican outfit Tigres de la UANL, and was loaned to Monarcas Morelia for six months.[2] In April 2014 it was revealed that Tijuana still owned the Arévalo's rights when Tigres stated they were in negotiations with Tijuana to acquire the player, the following month it was announced that Tigres signed Arévalo.[11][12] Two days after his participation with the Uruguay national team on the 2014 FIFA World Cup ended, he started training immediately with Tigres, what coach Ricardo Ferretti praised and said that Arévalo is "not an idol, but an example of what a player must be".[13] On July 9, 2014, Arévalo made his official debut with Tigres against former team Monarcas Morelia for the 2014 Supercopa MX.

In December 2015, it was announced that Arévalo would be joining Atlas on loan for 6 months without a buying option.

International career

Arevalo played all of the games at the 2010 FIFA World Cup and the 2014 FIFA World Cup. In 2011, he won the Copa América in Argentina. He was chosen by Óscar Tabárez as one of the three over aged players for the London 2012 Olympics Uruguayan squad.[14] He was chosen captain of the national team.[15]
