Daniel “Dan” Califano was an Argentine-American soccer defender who spent one season in the North American Soccer League. He also earned one cap with the U.S. national team.

National team[edit]

Califano played his single game with the U.S. national team in a 1-0 win over Poland on August 3, 1973. He was replaced by Carmen Capurro in the 65th minute.[1]


Califano, and most of his team mates, were from the second division American Soccer League after the first division North American Soccer League (NASL) refused to release players for the game.[2] In 1975, he signed with the San Antonio Thunder of the NASL.[3]
