Guillermo "Pando"" Ramírez Ortega (born March 26, 1978 in Livingston, Guatemala) is a Guatemalan football midfielder who plays for CSD Municipal in the Guatemala National League. He is also a member of the Guatemala national team, being its most capped player as of August 2008.

Club career

Having been a part of Municipal since 1995, Ramírez also had spells in 2001 with PAS Giannina in Greece and in 2003 with Jaguares in the Mexican First Division.

He played the 2005 season on loan for the Los Angeles Galaxy of Major League Soccer. He struggled, scoring a lone goal during the regular season, but in the playoffs, in his only appearance, as a substitute in the MLS Cup Final, he scored the game-winner in extra time to give Galaxy its second MLS title. []

After the 2005 MLS season, Ramírez went back to Municipal, and has since helped the team win three league tournaments.

National team

Ramírez is a member of the Guatemalan national team, being capped over 60 times. He has been part of the qualification processes for the World Cups of 2002, 2006, and 2010. He captained the squad that reached the final stage of the 2006 World Cup qualification.

On August 6, 2008, Ramirez wore the captain armband and scored Guatemala's second goal of a 3-0 victory over Bolivia, also becoming the most capped player in the history of the Guatemalan team with 91 international appearances, surpassing the previous record held by Juan Carlos Plata.
