Raphael Bove (born 5 March 1977 in Cassino) is an Italian Australian football (soccer) player who has represented Australia at international level.


Bove, who was born in Italy but moved to Australia at a young age, played his early football in Europe, appearing with teams including Dutch club SC Heerenveen and Scottish side Dundee United. Bove was part of the Australian squad at the 1997 FIFA World Youth Championship, making two substitute appearances. He made his full international debut in November 1998, when his 90th-minute substitute appearance in the friendly match against the United States made him the 442nd player to represent Australia.[1] Hayden Foxe, who started the match, also made his debut in the San Jose-based 0-0 draw
