Bruno Mora (born March 29, 1937 in Parma; died December 10, 1986 in Parma) was an Italian football player and coach, who played as a right winger; during his prime he was regarded as one of the best players in the world in his position.[1] He died in 1986, at the age of 49, due to a stomach tumour.[1]

Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Mora played for 13 seasons in the Serie A for U.C. Sampdoria, Juventus F.C., A.C. Milan and A.C. Parma, scoring 63 goals in 245 appearances. He is mostly remembered for performances during his successful domestic and European stint with Milan, during which he won the 1963 European Cup Final against Benfica at Wembley Stadium, as well as the 1967 Coppa Italia final, and the 1967-68 Serie A title. Mora had also previously won the 1960-61 Serie A title with Juventus. He finished his career with Parma in the lower divisions, winning the 1969-70 Serie D title.[2]

International[edit]

Mora earned 21 caps and scored 4 goals for the Italy national football team between 1959 and 1965, and he was a member of the Italian side that took part in the 1962 FIFA World Cup in Chile. He made his international debut in a 1-1 draw against Hungary, in Florence, on 29 November 1959. A serious injury (following a collision with Bologna player Giuseppe Spalazzi) impeded him from taking part in the 1966 World Cup, and also affected his later performances.[1][3]
