Federico Crescentini (April 13, 1982 – December 15, 2006)[1] was a Sammarinese football Defender. He was international with his country in eight opportunities.[1]

Club career[edit]

Crescentini played in the Italian amateur leagues before moving to Sanmarinese side Tre Fiori in 2005.

International career[edit]

He made his debut for San Marino in a May 2002 friendly match against Estonia, coming on as a substitute for Giacomo Maiani. He earned his 8th and final cap against Ireland in November 2006, substituting Damiano Vannucci.

Death[edit]

He died while on holiday in Acapulco, Mexico when he tried to help a friend in trouble, but despite rescuing her, he drowned.[1] He was the third footballer to drown in the course of a single week, after Juventus FC's youth players Riccardo Neri and Alessio Ferramosca drowned at the club's training ground. At the time of his death, he was only 24. His funeral took place at MonteGiardino in San Marino.
