Facundo Sava (born 7 March 1974) is an Argentine former footballer. He played 17 years of professional football, mainly in Argentina, but also with spells in Spain and England. Outside his country, Sava is best known for his goal celebration where he donned a mask which was stored in one of his socks.
Sava started his career in Ferro Carril Oeste in 1993. In 1996, he moved to Boca Juniors. It wasn't long after his move to Boca, that he was sold on to Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata. In 2002, Sava was sold to Fulham for £2 million. Whilst at Fulham he is remembered for scoring a dramatic late equaliser against Middlesbrough and scoring twice as Fulham beat Liverpool. From there, he enjoyed a loan spell to Celta de Vigo. After a permanent move to Celta, he helped them secure promotion to the Spanish first division. He then moved to another Spanish second division team; Lorca Deportiva, but returned to Argentina in the middle of 2006 to play for Racing Club.
In 2008 he joined Arsenal de Sarandí and, the following season, he helped Quilmes achieve promotion to the Argentine Primera División. However, he did not stay with Quilmes in the Primera, instead returning to his first club, Ferro Carril Oeste, after 14 years. With Ferro, he played 6 games in the 2010–11 season of the Primera B Nacional, before deciding to retire. He played his last game in an away draw against Belgrano on 11 September 2010.
