Amadeo Raúl Carrizo (born 12 June 1926 in Rufino, Santa Fe), popularly known for his first name "Amadeo", is a former football goalkeeper. Carrizo is considered a pioneer of the position, helping to innovate techniques and strategies for goalkeepers.
During his time at River Plate, he played along stars such as José Manuel Moreno, Félix Loustau, Adolfo Pedernera, Ángel Labruna and Alfredo Di Stéfano. He won five Championship trophies in 1952, 1953, 1955, 1956 and 1957.
In 1968, Carrizo simultaneously established two records for his time: official matches in the Argentine First Division (513) and consecutive matches without conceding any goals (8).
