Osvaldo Francisco Canobbio Pittaluga (born February 17, 1973 in Montevideo, Uruguay), commonly known as Osvaldo Canobbio, is a retired footballer who played as a striker. He is currently the head coach of El Tanque Sisley. He appeared in several teams from many different countries (including Argentina, Chile and China) and was involved in the 1993 U-20 FIFA World Cup, which was held in Australia.

Canobbio started his career in 1988 by joining CA River Plate. After some bad performances, River lost its category and was relegated to Segunda División Uruguay in 1990.

In 1991 River was promoted to Primera Division. The team reached the 2nd position in the Uruguayan First Division tournament (Primera División Uruguaya) in 1992.

By 1994 Canobbio had joined Nacional. He then moved to Argentina in 1996 and started playing for Deportivo Español. In Argentina he also joined Talleres de Córdoba (in 1997) and Racing Club (in 1998) where he became the highest goalscorer of the team.

In 2002 Osvaldo moved to Chile and joined Cobreloa and participated in Copa Libertadores.

After almost fourteen years playing in South America, Osvaldo moved to China to join Yunnan Hongta, a team which used to participate in the Chinese League.

Between 2004 and 2007, Osvaldo has played for his former team, River, in the Uruguayan First Division. Then he played for C.D. Olimpia in the Liga Nacional de Honduras. He was in July 2007 hired by Liverpool F.C..
