Yony Flores (born 16 February 1983 in Guatemala City) is a former Guatemalan football defender who last played for CSD Municipal in the Liga Nacional de Guatemala.

Club career[edit]

Flores started his career at Sacachispas. He joined Deportivo Marquense before signing up for CSD Municipal on 16 June 2009.[1]

Match fixing allegations and suspension[edit]

On May 27, 2012, Flores was separated from the Guatemala National Team on basis of suspected to arrange a match result of Guatemala against South Africa in 2010. On June 2012, this was confirmed by team mates, Luis Rodriguez and Carlos Ruiz.

Flores, along with Guillermo Ramirez and Gustavo Adolfo Cabrera, was found guilty by the National Football Federation of Guatemala in September 2012 of conspiring to fix a pair of national team exhibitions and a CONCACAF Champions League game between CSD Municipal and Mexico's Santos Laguna. The trio played together at Municipal in the fall of 2010, when the club finished behind Santos and the Columbus Crew in its first-round group.

Banned from the sport inside their native country, the players saw their exile extended worldwide on Wednesday.[2]

International career[edit]

Flores made his debut for Guatemala in a February 2007 UNCAF Nations Cup match against El Salvador and, as of January 2010, earned 20 caps, scoring no goals, including seven qualifying matches for the 2010 FIFA World Cup.[3] He was part of the squad for the 2007 CONCACAF Gold Cup, but did not make any appearances.[4] In 2011, Flores scored a goal in an 2014 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Saint Vincent and the Grenadines
