Néstor Gabriel Subiat (born 23 April 1966 in Buenos Aires, Argentina) is a retired Argentine-Swiss footballer, who played as a striker.

He never played professionally in his country, representing several clubs in France and Switzerland, and appearing with the Swiss national team at the 1994 World Cup.

Club career[edit]

The son of a former FC Mulhouse Argentine striker, also called Néstor, Subiat started his career precisely at the French side, as a defender, but already showing scoring abilities, which prompted a move up front.

After a loan at RC Strasbourg, Subiat played until 1992 at Mulhouse, scoring a further 25 goals, both seasons being spent in Ligue 2. He then moved to Switzerland for the following six years, scoring aplenty for AC Lugano, Grasshopper Club Zürich (even though he only played regularly in his first year) and FC Basel, winning national leagues with the second and the third.

In his last four years, Subiat appeared sparingly at professional level in both countries, with AS Saint-Étienne, Étoile Carouge FC and FC Lucerne, retiring in 2002 with amateurs SC Orange (France).

International career[edit]

Subiat chose to represent the Swiss national team internationally, his first cap coming in 1994. He participated at that year's FIFA World Cup, coming on as a substitute in three scoreless games.[1]

In total, Subiat scored six times in 15 matches, over a two-year period.
