Template:Football player infobox Template:Spanish name 2 Nelson Antonio Haedo Valdez (born November 28, 1983 in Caaguazú) is a Paraguayan footballer. He currently plays striker for Borussia Dortmund.



He joined Werder Bremen in December 2001 from Club Atlético Tembetary in Paraguay. He spent the first two seasons in the Regionalliga with the reserve team, but became more regular. In the 2003/04 season he helped Werder Bremen become German league and cup champion. During his years at Bremen, he didn't often receive the opportunity to start since he was stuck behind Miroslav Klose and Ivan Klasnić, the Bundesliga's top striking duo at the time. In May 2006, Valdez signed a four year contract with German side Borussia Dortmund, where he was able to start on a regular basis but struggled to score, with 1 goal in 29 outings in 2006-07.

He was selected in Paraguay's squad for the 2006 World Cup but, although he put on a good performance against England, he failed to score in the three appearances.
