Felice Placido Borel (5 April 1914 – 21 January 1993) was an Italian football player who played as a striker. He was a member of the Italy national football team that won the 1934 FIFA World Cup.

Club career[edit]

Borel was born in Nizza Monferrato, Italy. During his career, he played for Juventus and cross-city rivals Torino in Serie A and, in Serie B, for Alessandria, and finally for S.S.C. Napoli, where he finished his career.[1]

He scored 157 goals for Juventus, winning three Serie A titles (1933, 1934, and 1935) and a Coppa Italia (1938) during his time with the club, as well as the Serie A top-scorer award on two occasions (1933 and 1934); he is currently Juventus's sixth highest goal scorer.[1]

International career[edit]

Borel made 3 appearances for Italy between 1933 and 1934, scoring his only international goal on his debut against Hungary on 22 November, in Budapest, during the Dr. Gero Cup. He was part of the 1934 FIFA World Cup winning national team, appearing once throughout the tournament, during the quarter-final victory over Spain on 1 June.[2]

After retirement[edit]

During the 1958–59 season, he was technical director of Catania.[1]

Personal life[edit]

Felice's older brother Aldo Borel played football professionally, spending 10 seasons in the Serie A, and their father Ernesto Borel played for OGC Nice, AS Cannes and Juventus F.C. in the 1900s and 1910s. To distinguish the brothers, Aldo was known as Borel I and Felice - as Borel II.
