Abel Eduardo Balbo (pronounced|aˈβel eˈðwaɾðo ˈβalβo; born June 1, 1966, in Empalme Villa Constitución, Santa Fe) is a former Argentine football striker.

At club level, Balbo played for Newell's Old Boys (1987-88), River Plate (1988-89), before moving to Italy and Udinese (1989-93), Roma (1993-98 and 2000-02), Parma (1998-99), and Fiorentina. He played four games for Boca Juniors before finally retiring. He scored a total of 138 goals in Serie A; his best seasons came in 1992-93 for Udinese and 1994-95 for Roma, with 22 goals in each of them.

For Argentina, Balbo scored 11 goals in 37 caps, and played at the 1990, the 1994, the 1998 FIFA World Cups, the 1989 and 1995 Copas América. In the 1995 tournament in Uruguay, Balbo partnered Gabriel Batistuta in attack, and scored a goal against Brazil's Claudio Taffarel in an infamous quarter-final game that Argentina eventually lost in a penalty shootout after Brazilian striker Tulio Costa scored the Brazilian equalizer with 10 minutes to go - after clearly controlling the ball with his arm.

After his retirement, Balbo eventually became a musician, performing songs in Italian and Spanish. He also wants to get into football coaching.
