Antonio Pacheco d'Agosti (born 11 April 1976) is an Uruguayan retired footballer who played as a forward. He also held an Italian passport.

He started his 21-year professional career with Peñarol, appearing in more than 200 official games for the club. Additionally, he played abroad in Italy, Spain and Argentina.

Club career

Born in Montevideo, Pacheco was signed by Inter Milan in January 2001 after stellar performances at local giants C.A. Peñarol, with a contract running until 30 June 2005. However, he made only one Serie A appearance with the Italians, and served consecutive loans in the following years, with Peñarol but also in Spain, first with RCD Espanyol then Albacete Balompié, with the latter buying the player permanently afterwards.

In January 2006, as Albacete was now in the second division, Pacheco wanted out, and was eventually loaned to Deportivo Alavés until the end of the season. The move was a disaster individually (no La Liga appearances) and collectively (relegation).

After a brief spell in Argentina with Club de Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata, Pacheco returned in 2007 for a third stint with Peñarol: he scored 12 league goals in the 2008–09 campaign, including twice against city rivals Club Nacional de Football on 24 May 2009, one through a penalty kick.

After reaching the 2011 Copa Libertadores final, 35-year-old Pacheco signed with Montevideo Wanderers FC. In June 2012, he returned to his main club Peñarol, retiring three years later at nearly 39 even though he still received offers to continue.[1]

International career

During seven years Pacheco gathered 12 appearances for Uruguay, scoring three times. His debut came on 12 October 1997 in a 0–0 in Argentina for the 1998 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Afterwards, Pacheco was summoned for the final squad at the 1999 Copa América, playing three matches for the eventual runners-up.
