Cristian Pavon is a professional footballer player from Argentina. Born on the 21st of January, 1996, in Cordoba, Cristian plays as a winger and a striker. He currently features in the Argentina Primera Division for Boca Juniors.
Pavon signed his first professional contract at the age of 16. Argentine club Talleres de Cordoba availed his services back in 2012. The young man was making early inroads in his career. He was gaining in confidence day by day and was developing the ability to play on both the flanks.
The young man was seen as one of the brightest prospects for Argentina. In 2014, he signed up for Boca Juniors for €1.3M. Since then he has remained with the club and has played 56 matches and scored 16 goals.
Before playing for the senior side, Pavon represented Argentina at the U23 level and in the 2016 Summer Olympics. However, he failed to make much of an impact there. His club performances rewarded him with his international debut on the 11th of November, 2017, in a friendly match against Russia. He had an impressive debut as he was involved in an assist to Sergio Aguero that was the only goal of the game. Three days later he assisted Aguero again in a 2-4 loss against Nigeria.
Rise to Glory
Pavon’s top moment came in the 2016-17 season when Boca Juniors lifted the Primera Division title for the 32nd time. The striker was second in the list of most assists after finishing with a tally of nine assists. He also scored nine goals in the season.
The youngster’s pace and power has been widely appreciated by the experts. He has attracted interests from Arsenal and Manchester City but a deal has not been materialized yet. His excellent shot range coupled with good decision making in the box has helped him to make a good progress in his career.
Though Pavon has done quite well in his short career, he has a long way to go. He needs more goals to his name. A striker is always judged on the total number of goals that he scores. Pavon needs to improve his finishing touches to add to his tally considerably.
Pavon at his peak can be a threat to any side. The versatile player has a long way to go and must work on his game to garner interests from bigger clubs.
