It was the country’s first major international honour, and in clinching third place they scored 25 goals in six games, including their then biggest ever win, 14-0 against Puerto Rico. Giribaldi appeared in the 1948 CCCF (Confederación Centroamericana y del Caribe de Fútbol) Championship in Guatelama, and two years later was part of the team that captured the Central American and Caribbean Games gold medal. He took part in the 1953 CCCF Championship and two years later won a silver medal, and that same year, 1955, was in the Curaçao bronze medal-winning squad at the Pan American Games. Giribaldi played in three qualifying matches for the 1958 FIFA World Cup, and made his final international appearance in a 3-1 defeat by Haiti in the 1957 CCCF Championship.
