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. 

Did you Know?

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.

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.

Totti Francesco

Things to Know:

In 2001, Associazione Sportiva Roma took its third league title (after 1942 and 1983), winning Serie A only a year after rivals Lazio. Important signings were the Argentines Walter Samuel, a defender, and Gabriel Batistuta, a top striker. Fabio Capello’s line-up also included Cafu, Vincent Candela, Emerson, Vincenzo Montella and captain Francesco Totti. Capello won Serie A once again when on the last matchday Roma defeated Parma 3–1 at home with Totti, Montella and Batistuta scoring.

Did you Know?

By the 2000–01 campaign under the new coach, Roma were building a competitive team around Totti, who was by now being utilised as a creative attacking midfielder by Capello in a 3–4–1–2 formation, due to his passing skills and playmaking abilities. Totti scored in a 2–0 home win over Bologna on his season debut on 1 October 2000. On 10 December, Totti scored the match-winning goal in a 2–1 home win against Udinese with a powerful left-footed volley to help Roma to their fifth home win of the season. He continued his goalscoring form by scoring against Napoli at home in a 3–0 victory on 28 January 2001, as Roma finished the first half of the league season in first place. Totti continued to play an important role in keeping the club at the top of the table throughout the remainder of the season, gaining a comfortable lead over rivals Juventus. On 17 June 2001, at the Stadio Olimpico, Roma beat Parma 3–1, with their three main attackers, Totti, Vincenzo Montella and Gabriel Batistuta scoring one goal each, as Roma were crowned champions of Italy for the third time in their history. Totti finished the league season with 13 goals, equalling what was at the time his personal goalscoring record in a single Serie A season.

Back in 2001 top model and actress Ms Ferilli stripped down to a flesh coloured bikini on stage in front of a million people as Roma fans celebrated winning Serie A with a party and concert in the city’s Circo Massimo. She promised she would have done it in case of Scudetto and she kept her word.

Things to Know:

In January 2000, after one and a half seasons at Perugia, Nakata moved to Roma for 42 Billion ITL (€21.691 million) helping the team win the scudetto. The highlight of Nakata’s career at Roma came on May 6, 2001 in the Serie A match against Juventus at Stadio Delle Alpi. After replacing Francesco Totti in the second half with Roma trailing 0–2, Nakata netted with a 30-yard goal beyond Juventus goalkeeper Edwin van der Sar’s reach, with 11 minutes left in the match. He then helped Roma score the equalizer when his fierce drive from outside the box was parried by Van der Sar into the path of Vincenzo Montella, who scored for Roma in the last minute. The match ended with a 2–2 draw and Roma maintained a six-point margin atop the league table.
