Ezequiel Adrián Cirigliano (born January 24, 1992) is an Argentine football midfielder who plays for the Italian side Hellas Verona in Serie A on loan from River Plate.

Club career[edit]

Cirigliano made his first team debut for River Plate on April 11, 2010 in a 0–0 away draw with Atlético Tucumán.[1] At 18, he started the game against Atlético alongside 36-year-old Matías Almeyda in midfield.[2] A tough tackling midfielder who is useful on the ball, Cirigliano has been likened to a cross between Xavi and Javier Mascherano.[3]

On July 18, 2013, Cirigliano joined the newly promoted Serie A club Hellas Verona on a loan deal.[4]

International career[edit]

Cirigliano played for the Argentina national under-17 football team the 2009 South American Under-17 Football Championship and the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup, and with the Argentina national under-20 football team the 2011 South American Youth Championship. He has also been selected for the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup.
