Peruzzi Angelo


Did you Know?

Peruzzi began his Serie A career with Roma in 1987. He was loaned to Hellas Verona in 1989, but was one of the two Roma players (the other being Andrea Carnevale) to be suspended for a year in October 1990 after failing a doping test because of an appetite suppressant he was taking at the time, which contained the banned substance Phentermine.

Regarded as one of the best Italian goalkeepers of his generation, Tancredi was an explosive yet reliable and consistent shot-stopper. Although not particularly tall for a goalkeeper, he was blessed with great speed and agility and gained a reputation as a penalty saving specialist throughout his career. He was also known for his particular diving technique with one arm, which was similar to Rinat Dasayev’s technique. Furthermore, he excelled at rushing off his line and getting to ground quickly to collect the ball, although he was less adept at coming out to claim crosses and high balls.

Peruzzi Angelo


Did you Know?

In the 1990-1991 season Peruzzi could only play three games with the team because for the failed doping test on October 1990. At the end of the season he left Roma and he joined Juventus. His signing with Juventus in 1991 successfully revived his career and he soon surpassed Stefano Tacconi as the club’s starting goalkeeper, remaining with the team until 1999, and winning the Serie A Goalkeeper of the Year Award in 1997 and 1998, as well as the Guerin d’oro in 1997.

Regarded as one of the best Italian goalkeepers of his generation, Zinetti was an athletic and reliable shot-stopper, who was known for his efficient rather than spectacular playing style, as well as his handling, his speed when rushing off his line, and his ability to come out and claim crosses. Zinetti joined A.S.Roma in 1990 as a second goalkeeper behind Giovanni Cervone; with Roma, he won the Coppa Italia in 1991. He left the team in 1993 to join Ascoli.

Cervone Giovanni


Did you Know?

Associazione Sportiva Roma was rejuvenated in Carlo Mazzone’s second season as coach, much due to Abel Balbo being the goalscorer it had lacked for the previous years. The summer signings of 1994 helped, with internationally recognized players Jonas Thern and Daniel Fonseca joining the club from rivals Napoli. Also Francesco Moriero became a household player since he proved his worth in the club, recently coming from Cagliari. Cervone started the season as team second goalkeeper behind Fabrizio Lorieri but manager Carlo Mazzone shortly changed his mind and made Cervone becoming the first goalkeeper.

Cervone Giovanni


Things to Know:

This shirt was worn by Giovanni Cervone during a 1995/1996 friendly pre season’s game. It is easy to be recognized as a pre-season shirt for two reasons. Firstly because the shirt has no name on the back and the 1995-1996 was the first season that FIGC introduced names on shirts for Serie A’ games. The second reason is instead that the shirt has the “Uhlsport” logo visible on the neck and it didn’t happen for official season’s games. While Giovanni Cervone was sponsored by Uhlsport he was not allowed to show his personal sponsor on the shirt, so the team’s supplier’s “Asics” logo was sewn above any other logos on goalkeeper’s shirts as you can see on the picture above. Goalkeepers were perhaps allowed to show their personal sponsor’s logos during friendly games, as you can see from the picture below where Giovanni Cervone shows Uhlsport’s logo on chest.

Cafu Marcos


Did you Know?

This shirt was worn by Cafu during the Serie A game between Vicenza and Roma which took place in Vicenza, “Romeo Menti” Stadium, on March 22nd 1998. Roma draw 1-1 and at the end of the game Cafu swapped his shirt with a Vicenza’s player whom we got it from. After a brief stint back in Brazil with Palmeiras in 1996, Cafu returned to Europe once again the next year, this time with Roma, and won the Scudetto in 2001, followed by the Supercoppa Italiana. It was during his tenure at Roma that Cafu earned the nickname Il Pendolino (“The Express Train” or “The Commuter”). Despite making the Coppa Italia final in 2003 with Roma, he moved to Milan after turning down a move to Japan with Yokohama F. Marinos.
