Club career[edit]

A much-travelled forward, Cubero made his professional debut on 23 March 1996 for Puntarenas against Municipal Goicochea[1] and spent the first seasons of his career at Costa Rican sides Puntarenas, Alajuelense and San Carlos for whom he scored 19 in the 2002 season[2] before moving abroad to play in Guatemala for over 10 years. He won the 2007 Clausura title with Xelajú.[3]

In June 2010 Cubero returned to his native Costa Rica[4] but in September 2010 he was released by Santos de Guápiles for alleged indiscipline.[5] He then returned to Guatemala and was snapped up by Suchitepéquez.[6]

In August 2012 he signed for Guatemalan second division side Deportivo Ayutla,[7] he joined Juventud Escuintleca for the 2013 Clausura[8] and moved to Coatepeque in September 2013.[9]

International career[edit]

Cubero has made five appearances for the Costa Rica national football team, his debut coming in a friendly against Ecuador on February 16, 2005.[10] He made two substitute appearances at the UNCAF Nations Cup 2005[11] and two substitute appearances at the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[12]
