An attacker, he has played 6 matches for the Paraguay national football team. He currently plays for Borussia Dortmund. He joined Werder Bremen in December 2001 from Atletico Tembetary in Paraguay. He spent the first two seasons in the Regionalliga with the reserve team, but became more regular. In the 2003/04 season he helped Werder Bremen become German league and cup champion. Valdez is an explosive goalscorer and playmaker, and scored some very important game-winning goals for Werder in Bundesliga and especially international competition the last two years. During his years at Werder Bremen, Valdez didn't often receive the opportunity to start since he was stuck behind Miroslav Klose and Ivan Klasnić, the Bundesliga's top striking duo at the time. He often entered the game in the 70th minute or later as a sub for one of them, or for a midfielder if Werder was losing. In May 2006, Valdez signed a four year contract with German side Borussia Dortmund, where he has been able to start on a regular basis.

He was selected in Paraguay's squad for the 2006 World Cup. He had a good game against England but failed to score.
