Born in Genoa, Emilio Caprile's Serie A debut came at 17 years of age with Genoa in 1945 then Sestrese in Serie B as well as Legnano before going to Juventus. With Juventus he won the championship having only played five games and scoring 2 goals. Tired of riding the bench he went to Atalanta for two seasons and then to Lazio, Como in Serie B, returning finally to Legnano in Serie C. He retired after 13 seasons.
Caprile was a classic left winger who made his senior international debut for Pozzo's Italy national team in the round of 16 of the 1948 London Olympics on 2 August 1948, also scoring a goal in a 9–0 win over the United States, in Brentford, at the age of 19 years, 10 months, and 2 days, making him one of Italy's youngest ever debutants. He also made another appearance in the tournament, playing in the quarterfinals, scoring a goal in Italy's 5–3 loss to Denmark. That was his last chance at a starting role for the 'Azzurri' because of heavy competition in that position was from Riccardo Carapellese; these were the only two appearances that Caprile made for Italy between 1948 and 1950. In total, he scored two goals for Italy. He was the youngest player on Italy's 1950 World Cup team, but one of four players who didn't see any action throughout the tournament.
