Néstor Gabriel Subiat (born 23 April 1966) is a Swiss retired footballer who played as a striker.

He never played professionally in his country, representing several clubs in France and Switzerland and appearing with the latter national team at the 1994 World Cup.

Club career[edit]

The son of a former FC Mulhouse, also called Néstor and also a striker, Subiat was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and started his career precisely at the French side, as a defender but already showing scoring abilities, which prompted a move up front.

After a loan at RC Strasbourg, Subiat played until 1992 at Mulhouse, scoring a further 25 goals combined as both seasons were spent in Ligue 2. He then moved to Switzerland for the following six years, scoring aplenty for AC Lugano, Grasshopper Club Zürich – even though he only played regularly in his first year – and FC Basel and winning three national championships with the second club.

In his last four years, Subiat appeared sparingly at professional level in both countries, with AS Saint-Étienne, Étoile Carouge FC and FC Lucerne, retiring in 2002 with amateurs SC Orange (France).

International career[edit]

Subiat chose to represent Switzerland internationally, his first cap coming in 1994. He participated at that year's FIFA World Cup, coming on as a substitute in three scoreless games.[1]

In total Subiat scored six times in 15 matches, over a two-year period.
