Club career

After four seasons with Club Atlético River Plate (Montevideo), Correa moved abroad to Atlético de Madrid, making his La Liga debut on 10 September 1995 against Racing de Santander. Incidentally, he would be loaned for two seasons to the Cantabria side, scoring 27 league goals in that period, enough to earn a return to the Spanish capital. There, however, he would never be more than a decent offensive backup, at least in the first division; he did form an efficient offensive partnership with countryman Diego Alonso in the 2001–02 season, as the Colchoneros returned to the top level after two years, combining for 35 league goals.

After a two-year stint with RCD Mallorca and six further games for Real Valladolid (Segunda División), Correa returned to Uruguay and River Plate, joining C.A. Peñarol after a short stint with China's Shanghai Shenhua FC.

In the 2009 summer, he rejoined his first professional club, River Plate, at the age of 35.

International career

An intermittent Uruguayan full international (one match in 1994, another in 1998 and two in 2004), Correa previously represented the nation at the 1993 FIFA World Youth Championship.

He made his debut for the national team on 19 October 1994 (aged 20), in a friendly match with Peru in the Estadio Nacional José Díaz in Lima, replacing Darío Silva in the 78th minute of the 1–0 win.[1]
