Guido Vincenzi (born July 14, 1932 in Quistello, Mantova; died August 14, 1997) was an Italian football (soccer) player. Just after reaching twenty-one years of age he left Reggiana, which was in Serie C, made his way to Inter, the Italian champions at the time, and in three months made his Serie A debut. After just 13 games he earned his first cap for the national team in a 4-1 friendly win against France. At Inter he quickly became a starter and with the 'Azzurri' he was impeccable in his debut in Paris. His other outings with the national team were less fortunate however. His second game was a loss to Switzerland at the 1950 World Cup (of the 17 players that saw action he was the youngest) and his third cap was a loss in Belfast preventing qualification for the 1958 World Cup in Sweden. After having won a championship with Inter he went to Sampdoria gaining 297 appearances in 11 seasons becoming the fifth leading player for the 'blucerchiato' in this category behind Mancini, Vierchowod, Mannini and Bernasconi. After his playing career he tried coaching for Sampdoria in the 1973-74 season finishing 13th and successfully remaining in Serie A.
