Fernando Pascoal Neves, commonly known as Pavão (12 July 1947 – 16 December 1973) was a footballer who played as a central midfielder for F.C. Porto in the Portuguese Liga.


Born in Chaves, Pavão began playing football for Porto's youth academy. He joined the senior team in 1965 and would play for the club during his entire career.

In December 1973, Pavão collapsed after completing a pass during the 13th minute of a league match against Setúbal at Estádio das Antas, dying of a heart attack at age 26.[1]
