From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Carlo Ceresoli (May 14, 1910 – April 22, 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 third goalkeeper after Aldo Olivieri and Guido Masetti. He died at age 84.
