Ángel Bossio (5 May 1905 – 31 August 1978) was an Argentine football Goalkeeper. He was called "La maravilla elástica" ("The elastic wonder") due to his agility.

Bossio was a member of the Argentine team that took part of the 1928 Olympic games and won the silver medal.

He also participated in the first ever World Cup in 1930, where Argentina again finished second behind Uruguay. He played for Argentina 21 times between 1927 and 1935.

At club level, Bossio played for Talleres de Remedios de Escalada in the 1920s before joining River Plate after the professionalisation of Argentine football in 1931.
