Ricardo Oscar Phillips (born 31 January 1975 in Panama City, Panama) is a retired football midfielder.

Club career[edit]

A short-sized but speedy attacking midfielder, Phillips started his career at Euro Kickers and joined Panamá Viejo in 2001.[1] He later signed for Tauro, who loaned him to Major League Soccer franchise New England Revolution in summer 2005.[2] In January 2006, Phillips was announced as a reinforcement by Colombian club Atlético Bucaramanga[3] and he joined Deportivo Pereira for a trial in summer 2007,[4] but a definitive move did not materialize. He did play in Panama for the Liga Panameña de Fútbol team San Francisco FC.

In April 2013, Phillips was keen on winning promotion with second division side Millenium UP.[5]

International career[edit]

Nicknamed Patón, he made his debut for the Panama national football team in a June 1996 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Belize and has earned a total of 84 caps, scoring 11 goals.[6] He represented his country in 21 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[7] and was a member of the 2005 CONCACAF Gold Cup team, who finished second in the tournament[8] and he also played at the 2007[9] and 2009 CONCACAF Gold Cups[10] as well as at the 2009 UNCAF Nations Cup, where Panama were champions.[11]

His final international was a January 2010 friendly match against Chile.
