Justo Wilmar Villar Viveros (born June 30, 1977 in Cerrito, Ñeembucú Department) is a Paraguayan footballer who currently plays for Real Valladolid in the Spanish first division, as a goalkeeper.

Club career

Villar started his career at Club Sol de América, where he was coached by legendary Ever Hugo Almeida, also a goalkeeper, as the side also included another famed player in that position as the keepers' coach, Modesto Sandoval.

In 2001, he moved to bigger club Club Libertad, where he was reunited with Sandoval; at the club, he won back-to-back national championships, in 2002 and 2003, signing the following year with Argentina's Newell's Old Boys.

As an undisputed starter, Villar helped Newell's to the 2004 Apertura championship, also being considered by the press as the Goalkeeper of the Year; previously, he had won the Paraguayan Footballer of the Year award (2004).

In January 2008, terms were agreed upon between Newell's and Real Valladolid of Spain for Villar's transfer, effective in the summer. On July 14, he was officially presented by his new team; due to starter Sergio Asenjo's injury, he was able to appear in 15 La Liga matches in his first year.

International career

Villar represented Paraguay at the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship, and received his first full cap two years later.

Having been selected for the 2002 FIFA World Cup, backing up legendary José Luis Chilavert, he was already a starter in the 2006 edition, but had a brief participation: during the first seven minutes of the opener against England, just after Carlos Gamarra's own goal, Villar got injured, was replaced by Aldo Bobadilla, and subsequently was sidelined for the rest of the tournament, in which Paraguay was eliminated in the first round.

Additionally, Villar also appeared in three Copa América tournaments.
