Charles-Édouard Coridon (born 9 April 1973 in Martinique) is a retired French-Martiniquais football midfielder. He represented the Martinique national football team at the 1993 and 2003 CONCACAF Gold Cup.[1]

He is best remembered for scoring a spectacular back heel overhead kick [1] in the UEFA Champions League for Paris Saint-Germain against FC Porto from 2004.[2] The goal was fourth-placed in a countdown of the top Champions League goals of all time by ITV Sport.

He represented France U21 in 1996 UEFA European Under-21 Championship,[3] but he was reported to have turned down France on the senior level. He said France has 'enough top-quality' players and he would not be needed.[citation needed]
