Interesting Notes 

  • Zapata began his career with Millonarios, making his debut in the Colombian top flight during the 2001 season.
    Zapata is considered one of Colombia’s greatest soccer players and export athletes largely due to his ability to
    score goals from the defense position which traditionally does not lend itself to reaching the goal net. Since making
    his debut with Millonarios, Zapata was a regular starter at left back and was known primarily for his speed. During the 2004 season he was sent on loan to Deportivo Cali and had an extraordinary season before returning to Millonarios. In 2008 he left his long time club and signed with Deportivo Pereira.[1]
  • He remained at the club for six months and appeared in 13 matches during that time. For the second half of the 2009 season Zapata joined América de Cali. He only remained at the club for six months as he and sixteen other players were let go at the end of the season.[2] In July 2010 Zapata signed with Venezuelan club Caracas F.C..[3] After one season in Venezuela Zapata signed with Wilstermann of Bolivia for the clubs Copa Libertadores campaign.[4] While with Wilstermann he appeared in two Copa matches. After a brief stay in Bolivia the Colombian defender signed with Deportivo Pasto . In his first year at the club he helped Pasto in capturing the Primera B title and gain promotion to the Liga Postobón.[5][6] In 2012 Zapata signed with Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer.
