Patricio Nazario "Pato" Yáñez Candia (born January 20, 1961 in Quilpué) is a retired football player from Chile, who obtained 43 caps for his national team, scoring five goals. He made his debut on June 13, 1979 in a friendly against Ecuador, replacing Jorge Neumann, and had his last match on November 16, 1994 against Argentina. He played for his native country in the 1982 FIFA World Cup.
El Pato Yáñez incident
In 1989, during the infamous incident involving the goalkeeper Roberto Rojas in a match against Brazil, Yáñez, under the frustration of believing his team was subject to unfairness, performed a gesture to the Brazilian fans by holding his penis with both of his hands and his middle body slightly bent towards the front in an act of sexual intercourse. The moment was captured by Chilean national television, and as years have passed, the offensive gesture, when repeated or remembered, is known as "Pato Yáñez".
