Paulo Cezar Magalhães Lobos (born December 14, 1989, in Porto Alegre, Brazil) is a Brazilian-born Chilean footballer. He currently plays as a defender for Brazilian club Internacional.

Club career

Deportes Antofagasta

Magalhães began in the youth system of Chilean club Deportes Antofagasta. He played on the under 17 and under 19 sides in 2006 and 2007 respectively.[2] In 2006, he made his debut with the adult side under coach Fernando Diaz.


Magalhães signed for Cobreloa on a one-year contract in June 2008.[3] He scored his first professional goal on May 2, 2009, against the next club he would sign with, Colo-Colo.


Before the 2009 Clausura Tournament, Colo-Colo lost starting defender Luis Pedro Figueroa. In order to fill the void, Colo-Colo signed Magalhães to a one-year contract. He played regularly in his first tournament with the team and scored two goals and the team went on to win the 2009 Clausura Championship.

National team

Magalhães, who has double nationality (he was born in Brazil of a Brazilian mother and a Chilean father), has participated on several different levels with the Chilean national team. In 2007, he was part of the Chile Sub-18 side that won the João Havelange tournament which was held in Mexico.[4]

After showing good form in Antofagasta in 2007 and with Cobreloa at the beginning of 2008, Magalhães was named to the Sub-23 national side coached by Eduardo Berizzo. The tournament which took place in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, saw he scored one goal against Togo.[5][6] The same year Magalhaes participated in the Milk Cup, in which Chile took a sub-19 team. Chile made it to the final losing to Northern Ireland 2-1.

In 2009, Magalhães was part of the sub-20 Chile team in the 2009 South American Youth Championship held in Venezuela, which was unable to surpass the group stage. In the same year, he again participated in an international tournament with the Sub-21 Chilean side in the 2009 Toulon Tournament. Finally Magalhães won an international tournament when the team was crowned champions. His good performance in the tournament caused him to sign with Chilean side Colo-Colo.
