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.

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.
