A painting was given to the porter a red and black jersey with the number 100 in the back. People gave him a standing ovation that evening at the Monumental Stadium in Arequipa.

Cáceda made his professional debut in 2008 with Alianza Sullana. He then spent eight seasons at the Universitario de Deportes. In 2018 he joined Deportivo Municipal. He also went through the Red Sharks of Mexico and Real Garcilaso of Cusco. As of 2019, he wears the silks of the Melgarian outfit.

Melgar finished second behind Paranaense of Brazil.

Due to card accumulations and exclusions, he was substituted on three times by the youthful Jorge Cabezudo. What he remembers most is the red one he saw earlier River Plate of Uruguay in Montevideo. Cáceda avoided the locals’ goal by taking the ball outside his box. Eventually, that signing was won by Melgar with a goal from Archimbaud.

The Red and Black side are unbeatable with good football in all their lines and with a goalkeeper like Cáceda who inspires security and confidence.
