Club career

Parra scored his first and only league goal for the Pericos on 17 October 1948, in a 5–0 home win against Celta de Vigo. He retired in June 1960 at nearly 35, after a spell with Cartagena FC.

International career

Parra gained seven caps for Spain, during one year. His first came on 9 April 1950, in a 2–2 away draw to Portugal for the 1950 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.

Selected by manager Guillermo Eizaguirre for the finals in Brazil, Parra played five times during the tournament to help to a final fourth place.


Parra died on 29 February 2016 in Terrassa, at the age of 90. He was the last survivor of the team that appeared in the 1950 World Cup.
