Ramón Idalecio Cardozo (born 23 April 1986) is a Paraguayan professional footballer who plays for Independiente F.B.C. as a forward.

Club career[edit]

Born in Villarrica, Guairá, Cardozo played most of his professional career with Tacuary. In January 2007 he was loaned to F.C. Penafiel in Portugal, being sparingly used by the second division club during his five-month spell, in an eventual eighth-place finish.

Cardozo returned to Portugal in 2013, going on to represent, always in the Primeira Liga, Vitória F.C. and Moreirense FC. Three years later he moved back to his country, signing with Deportivo Capiatá.

International career[edit]

Cardozo earned his only cap for Paraguay on 25 May 2011, coming on as a 77th-minute substitute for Pablo Zeballos in a 2–4 friendly loss against Argentina in Resistencia, Chaco.[1]

Personal life[edit]

In spite of the same surname, a similar nickname ("Tacuarita") and physical resemblance, Cardozo is not related to Óscar Cardozo, who is also a footballer and a forward who played with team and individual success with S.L. Benfica, and was also a longtime Paraguayan international.[2]
