    The club's website doesn't work for me, but enough evidence seems to point to this guy being at CD Municipal Limeño in the first division, and a Yank, to be worth posting.

    Here's some news from September on his expected signing -- it has him as American with Salvadoran and Honduran blood:

    Con la confirmación de la salida de Britez, la dirigencia oriental espera inscribir al estadounidense Wilfredo Cienfuegos, un volante ofensivo de 20 años, hijo de padre salvadoreño y madre hondureña, pero sin pasaporte cuscatleco.

    Cienfuegos hizo la pretemporada con el equipo de Santa Rosa de Lima y el equipo quería arreglarle papeles para que jugara como nacional. Sin embargo, ahora con el cupo de Britez disponible, lo inscribirán como extranjero.

    Limeño tiene hasta el miércoles para inscribir a Cienfuegos.​

    A couple of sites list him as American-born, and he's listed on the DA site as a '96 who played with Texas Rush. This one has him as a '97, and says he has several appearances for the club.

    T'Markt lists a Salvadoran YNT appearance.

    Salvadoran blood....named Cienfuegos....possible son of Mauricio? I know Mauricio is involved with the Galaxy Academy. Cienfuegos isn’t an uncommon name but born in ‘97 and Mauricio came to the Galaxy in ‘96. It may be a stretch but I was just trying to connect dots. :)

    Not gonna get into that, but I did learn just now that, small worlds being what they are, Mauricio Cienfuegos' wife's name is "Reyna."
