Carlos Emilio Carmona Tello (born February 21, 1987) is a professional Chilean footballer who started his career as a centre midfielder in Coquimbo Unido and has already captained Chile's U-20 and U-23 sides. On June 1, 2008, he was bought by Reggina, where he is expected to play until 2012.

Carmona was arguably Chile's most-improved performer during the 2010 qualifying phase, alternating between the brief of box-to-box midfielder and enforcer sweeping up in front of the back-line. His strengths are his dynamism, tactical awareness and shooting from distance. This versatile operator has skippered both Chile's Under-20 and Under-23 sides and was especially impressive with the former, as he was a star performer in the 2007 World Championship as he led the team to a highly commendable third place finish. He was with Coquimbo Unido and O'Higgins prior to linking up with Italian side Reggina two years ago. Carmona suffered the indignity of relegation to Serie B in his first season with the Amaranto (Dark-reds).
Carmone was Chile's youngest player at the 2005 U-20 World Cup in Holland where he showed some glimpse of talent in Chile's opening game, a 7-0 win against Honduras. Two years later, he captained Chile to the 2007 U-20 World Cup where he played in the 3-0 win against Canada, 3-0 win against Congo, 1-0 win against Congo, 4-0 win against Nigeria and 1-0 win against Austria; Chile eventually were bronze medalists at the end of tournament.

His international fortunes continued as Chile national football team Marcelo Bielsa called him up for the 2008 Toulon Tournament, a Under-23 football event, where Carmona won a silver medal with his side.

His performances in Toulon won him a spot in Chile's starting 11 for two World Cup Qualifying (South Africa 2010) games - away victories against Bolivia (2-0) and Venezuela (3-2), starting on both occasions as the team's only defensive central midfielder.
