Allan Fernando Oviedo Rodríguez (born November 8, 1970 in Alajuela[1]) is a retired Costa Rican football striker.

Club career[edit]

After winning promotion with the club, Oviedo made his Primera División debut for Sagrada Familia on 3 September 1994 against Turrialba and scored his first goal for them on 24 September 1994 against Limonense.[1] He then joined Belén and in May 1996 he moved abroad to play a month for Salvadoran side FAS.[2] On his return in Costa Rica, he won the 1996–1997 goalscorer award with 26 goals for Herediano[3] only to leave the club in December 1997 when he signed a six-months contract with Mexican second division team Unión de Curtidores.[4] He stayed another year with the club when joined by compatriots Alexander Madrigal and Raymond Harris.[5] Later in 1999 he played for Guatemalan giants Comunicaciones[6] and a half season at Herediano.

In 2001 Oviedo left another Mexican second division side, Tigrillos Nuevo León,[7] and became part of a championship-winning Alajuelense,[8] before moving on to Cartaginés,[9] Puntarenas,[10] Belén[11] and finishing his career at Brujas.[12]

Oviedo totalled 105 Costa Rica premier league goals in his career.[13]

International career[edit]

A rather short striker, Oviedo made his debut for Costa Rica in an August 1996 friendly match against Chile and earned a total of 26 caps, scoring 7 goals. He represented his country in 9 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[14] and played at the 1997 UNCAF Nations Cup[15] as well as at the 1998 CONCACAF Gold Cup[16] and the 1997 Copa América.[17]

His final international was an August 1999 friendly match against Uruguay.
