Mario Yepes 2

Mario Alberto Yepes Díaz is a Colombian professional footballer who plays as a defender. Yepes was well known for his time in Paris Saint-Germain where he was considered to be one of the best defenders at the time dubbing him as 'Super Mario' before moving to Chievo. He has also been the captain of the Colombian national team since 2008. Yepes is one of the last active players of the original members of the Colombian golden generation during their dying years where they won the 2001 Copa América. Thus, with the current golden generation, he's played in both the '90s golden generation (that ended in 2002) to the present golden team, along with Faryd Mondragón.
