Darío Lezcano Mendoza (born 30 June 1990[1]) is a Paraguayan footballer who plays for FC Ingolstadt.[2]

Club career

During the winter break of the 2010–11 Swiss Super League season Lezcano transferred from FC Wil to FC Thun.[3] He scored his first goal for the club during his first appearance on 6 February 2011 in the 3:2 home defeat against FC Basel.[4] During the winter break of the 2011–12 Swiss Super League season Lezcano transferred to Luzern. He played his team debut on 19 February 2012 in the goalless draw away against Lausanne-Sport. In his second game on 25 February he scored his first two goals for his new club in the 2–0 home win against BSC Young Boys.[5] He signed for FC Ingolstadt on 15 January 2016.[6]


While playing for Luzern, Lezcano was banned 8 matches[7] for assaulting referee Fedayi San, who showed him a second yellow card. The player then pushed the referee's chest, knocking the red card out of his hand. Imposing the ban, the league said in a statement that "respect for referees is a fundamental part of the game."

International career

Lezcano played the Sub17 Sudamericano 2007 in Ecuador for the Paraguay national under-17 football team.[8]

He was selected for the Paraguay senior squad by Ramón Díaz and made his debut for the senior team in the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Argentina on 15 October 2015.[9]
