Guido Masetti (22 November 1907 – 26 November 1993) was an Italian football goalkeeper and manager.

Club career[edit]

Born in Verona, Masetti played for Hellas Verona, and A.S. Roma from 1929 to 1943, appearing in 339 matches, winning an Italian title in the 1941–42 season.[1]

International career[edit]

Masetti was considered to be one of the strongest goalkeepers in 1930s and 1940s, but for the Italian national team he was merely used as a stand-in for Gianpiero Combi and Aldo Olivieri. Masetti won two World Cups in 1934 and 1938 without playing in any of the matches.

Managerial career[edit]

In 1950s, he was manager of A.S. Roma for ten games (5 in season 1950–51, and another 5 in season 1956–57).


He died at age 86 in Rome.
