Manuel Marani (born 7 June 1984)[1] is a football player from San Marino, currently playing for U.S. Russi and the San Marino national football team.


Notably, he scored a late equalizer for San Marino against the Republic of Ireland on 7 February 2007.[2] The goal nearly earned San Marino what would have been their greatest result, namely their third score draw in a competitive match and their second against a high-ranking team (the first came against Turkey, second against Latvia). However, Stephen Ireland scored a winner for the visitors just seconds before the end of injury time.[2] He is also the second person to have scored more than one goal for San Marino, after Andy Selva.
