Francisco Antonio Pavón Rodríguez (born 28 January 1977 in La Ceiba) is a retired Honduran professional football midfielder who most prominently played for local side Vida.

Club career[edit]

Pavón started his career at hometown club Victoria and then played alongside compatriots Walter Nahún López, Reynaldo Clavasquín and Juan Manuel Cárcamo for BSV Bad Bleiberg in the Austrian Football First League. He returned to Honduras after three seasons in Austria in 2002 to play for Motagua, Platense and Vida.

Pavón joined Xelajú of the Liga Nacional de Guatemala in July 2008,[1] after spending the 2007-08 season with Turkish amateur club Eğirdir Belediye Spor[2] but returned to Vida in 2009.

He retired in summer 2012[3] but was lured to playing again by Real Sociedad.[4] In February 2013, Vida could lose all points won in the 2013 Clausura for non-payment of Pavón's contract.[5]

Pavón made his debut for Honduras in a November 1999 friendly match against Trinidad & Tobago and has earned a total of 17 caps, scoring 1 goal. He has represented his country in 3 FIFA World Cup qualification matches and played at the 2000 Summer Olympics.[6] He also played at the 2003 UNCAF Nations Cup[7] as well as at the 2000 CONCACAF Gold Cup.
