Carlos Antonio Salom Zulema, born on April 15, 1987, is a distinguished Palestinian footballer, recognized as one of the top 5 players in Matchday 13 of the Thai League 1, as highlighted in an article by FOX Sports Asia.

In his club career, Salom achieved a notable milestone by scoring a decisive 94th-minute winner over Excursionistas, securing Barracas Central's promotion to the Primera B Metropolitana. Subsequently, he signed with Olimpo de Bahía Blanca in the Argentine Primera División.

However, Salom faced controversy in September 2017 after Mexico was struck by a powerful 7.1 earthquake. In the aftermath, he expressed regret for having played soccer in Mexico, attributing his migration to the country to his agent. This statement drew criticism from locals and Argentinians residing in Mexico, with notable figures like Damián Zamogilny urging Salom to rescind his contract if he truly desired to leave. Following the social media backlash, Salom issued an apology and faced repercussions, being relegated from the first team and sent to play in the reserves.
On the international stage, despite being born and raised in Argentina, Salom's great-grandparents' Palestinian heritage made him eligible to represent Palestine. In March 2016, he received a call-up to the Palestine national football team. Salom made a memorable debut, scoring in a friendly draw against Tajikistan on September 6, 2016.
