José Francisco "El Nene" Sanfilippo (born 4 May 1935) is a former Argentine footballer who played as a striker.

Club career[edit]

Sanfilippo was born in Buenos Aires. During his club career he played for San Lorenzo, Boca Juniors and Banfield in Argentina, Nacional in Uruguay, and Bangu and SC Bahia in Brazil.[1]

He scored his first league goal for San Lorenzo on 21 November 1953 against Banfield, and went on to score 192 league goals for them up to 1962.[2]

In 1963 he moved to Boca Juniors, although in 1964 he was dismissed from the club following a disciplinary incident in a match against his former club, San Lorenzo.[3]

He joined Uruguayan side Nacional in 1964, after the first round of the Copa Libertadores. He scored against Colo Colo in the only Copa match he played for the club, before getting injured in a friendly match.[4]

He is the 5th highest scoring player in Argentine football.[5]

At international level, Sanfilippo played for the Argentina national football team in the 1958 FIFA World Cup and the 1962 FIFA World Cup.[6] He was also part of the Argentina squads that won the 1955 Pan American Games and the 1957 South American Championship, and featured in the team that finished second at the 1959 South American Championship in Ecuador, finishing as the tournament's top-scorer.[citation needed] He is the joint ninth-highest goalscorer for the Argentina national football team, alongside Leopoldo Luque, with 22 goals.[7]
