Agustín Ignacio Orión (Spanish pronunciation: [aɣusˈtin oˈɾjon]; born June 26, 1981) is an Argentine football goalkeeper who currently plays for Boca Juniors.


Orión was San Lorenzo's first choice goalkeeper in 2007, when he helped the club to win the Clausura tournament.

On 9 December 2009, the goalkeeper left San Lorenzo for 500000 euros and joined Estudiantes de La Plata.[1]

On July 2011 Orión signed with Boca Juniors, where he won the 2011 Apertura.[2]

Since 2012, Orión is the vice-captain of the team, and he is one of the most important players in Boca Juniors and one of the best goalkeepers in Argentina. He's also goalkeeper in the Argentina national football team.

In 2013, Agustín received offers from important European clubs,[citation needed] but he decided to stay in Boca Juniors, because he is an important piece in the team and he loves the club.

Orión was called up to the Argentina national football team as third goalkeeper behind Roberto Abbondanzieri and Juan Pablo Carrizo for the 2007 Copa América held in Venezuela.[3]
