Ernesto Juan Álvarez was a former midfielder. Born in Gualeguaychú, Entre Ríos (1/10/1948), he started his professional career in the -then- World Champion team, Estudiantes de La Plata, where he played for three years until he was transferred to Colón de Santa Fe. In the red and black team, he became a legend scoring 43 goals in 185 games between 1972 and 1976, leaving the team in 1974 to play 12 games for Emelec, in Ecuador, and then coming back to Santa Fe. After his time in Colón, he left for Colombia to play for Deportivo Cali, where he would also become a very important player. "Cococho", -as he was called-, played two times for Deportivo Cali: once in 1976, and then again from 1978 to 1982. Álvarez scored 35 goals in 226 games for the Azucarero. He also played for Huracán in 1977, and for Deportes Quindio and Cúcuta Deportivo in 1978 and 1983, respectively. "Cococho" made history in football, as he holds the record for "the most Olympic goals" (directly from a corner kick) ever, with 11. This midfielder had an exquisite left foot, was extremely effective in free kicks (he was considered the best set-piece taker in Colombia in the late 70s), and also was a great distance passer. Of his Olympic goals, 9 were for Deportivo Cali, 1 for Colón, and 1 for Emelec. His most memorable goal was during a Copa Libertadores match against Quilmes on March 20, 1979.
