Carlo Ceresoli

Carlo Ceresoli (14 June 1910 – 22 April 1995) was an Italian football (soccer) goalkeeper. Born in Bergamo, he played in the Serie B with Atalanta, and in the Serie A with Inter Milan, Bologna, Genoa and Juventus.

He was considered one of the strongest goalkeepers of the 1930s with Giampiero Combi, Ricardo Zamora and František Plánička. With the Italian national team he played the only qualifying match of the 1934 FIFA World Cup against Greece and the famous Battle of Highbury in which he saved a penalty from Eric Brook. He was 1938 World Champion with the Italian national team and went on to win 8 caps. He died at age 84.
