Club career

Born in Asunción, Torres began playing professionally with hometown's Club Olimpia, winning back-to-back Primera División titles with it. In 1991 he also helped the team reach the final of the Copa Libertadores, lost on aggregate to Chile's Colo-Colo (0–3). During that year he was crowned the domestic competition's topscorer in 1991, at 12 goals.

After that Libertadores tournament Torres moved to Argentina, where he would represent three clubs with different individual success (he scored nearly 50 official goals for Racing Club de Avellaneda and Argentinos Juniors combined, but only found the net once in the first division with Newell's Old Boys). He moved to Europe in 1995, joining Spanish second division side CD Badajoz and helping the Extremadurans to five consecutive seasons in the category whilst playing in more than 200 official games – never appeared in less than 34 in the league during his spell – and surpassing the 50-goal mark.

Aged 32, still in Spain and its second level, Torres signed for Real Jaén, being relegated in his second season – however, he had already left the Andalusians in the previous transfer window, moving to another team in the country, Ciudad de Murcia. After only a couple of months, he returned to his previous club.

Torres closed out his career in 2005, representing Tacuary in his homeland.

International career

Torres represented Paraguay at the 1993 Copa América in Ecuador, as the national team exited in the quarterfinals after a 0–3 loss against the hosts.
