Cordon made two appearances with the Toronto FC first team during the 2010 season, the first in June against Vancouver Whitecaps FC during the Nutrilite Canadian Championship and then in October against Arabe Unido during the CONCACAF Champions League group stage.

In late January 2011 it was announced that Cordon would travel with Toronto's Senior team to Turkey for preseason training camp, being one of four academy players invited to travel.[1] After impressing during the preseason training camp he signed with Toronto FC on March 17, 2011.[2]

Cordon was released by Toronto on November 15, 2012.[4]

On July 18, 2013, Deportivo Iztapa announced they had signed Cordon.[5] However, the two sides were unable to come to an agreement and Cordon returned to Toronto in September to complete his high school education.[6]On September 1, 2003 he made his debut for Brampton United of the Canadian Soccer League against Astros Vasas FC.[7] During his tenure with Brampton he helped the club secure a postseason berth by finishing fourth in the overall standings. He featured in the quarterfinals of the playoffs against SC Waterloo, but were eliminated by a score of 4-0.[8]

Cordon joined the Woodbridge Strikers of the newly launched League1 Ontario in early 2014. Where he served as a player and a youth coach with the club. In 2015, he returned to the CSL to sign with the Serbian White Eagles.[9] Midway through the season he was traded to arch-rivals Toronto Croatia and helped the club finish as runners-up during the regular season. In the postseason he featured in the CSL Championship finals match against Waterloo, and scored the lone goal to capture Toronto's tenth championship.[10]

International[edit]

Cordon was called up on five occasions by the Canadian under-18 and under-20 national teams for camps between 2010 and 2012, though he never made a competitive appearance for either.[11]

Cordon is eligible for Canada as well as Guatemala and Honduras through his parents, although he has stated that his goal is to play for the Canadian national team.[12]
