Giuseppe Moro (16 January 1921 – 28 January 1974) was an Italian footballer who played as a goalkeeper. An eccentric and athletic player, he is regarded as one of Italy's most spectacular keepers.[1]

Club career[edit]

In eight season in Serie A, Giuseppe Moro defended the goal of six different teams (Fiorentina, Bari, Torino, Lucchese, Sampdoria and Roma).[1]

International career[edit]

Moro made his debut with the Italian national team in Budapest, in 1949, and he also appeared with Italy in the 1950 World Cup, in a win against Paraguay, coming on as a substitute for Lucidio Sentimenti. One of his notable saves was from a shot by Stan Mortensen in a classic EnglandItaly match played in London in 1949; in that game he produced miracles for 75 minutes before giving up goals to Rowley and Wright which did not diminish his outstanding performance.
