Roberto Junior Fernández Torres (born 29 March 1988 in Asunción) is a Paraguayan football goalkeeper who plays for Cerro Porteño in the Paraguayan Primera División.

He is known as Gatito (English: little cat) for being the son of former Paraguayan 1986 World Cup goalkeeper Roberto Fernández, nicknamed Gato (English: cat).



Fernández started his professional career with Paraguayan Primera División club Cerro Porteño in 2007. He became Paraguayan champion with the club in the 2009 Apertura. Following the achievement, he joined Argentine Primera División side Estudiantes de La Plata. After a season in the club without any first team appearance, he joined Racing.[1] In August 2011, Utrecht announced to have signed Fernández on loan for one year to cover a possible departure of Michel Vorm. [2]


He debuted with the Paraguayan U20 national team in the 2007 South American Youth Championship replacing injured Blas Hermosilla. He was selected for Paraguay senior squad for the 2011 Copa América. He was an un-used substitute for the squad as they finished the tournament as the runner-up.
