Enrico "Ricky" Albertosi (born 2 November 1939) is an Italian former football goalkeeper who played for the Italian national team in the 1966 World Cup and the 1970 World Cup.

Born in Pontremoli, Albertosi made his debut for the national team in 1961, a 4-1 victory against Argentina. His final international game took place in June 1972, when Italy drew 1-1 with Bulgaria.

In 1970 Albertosi was involved in the so-called "Game of the Century", when Italy played Germany. Despite conceding three goals in this match Albertosi won praise for a string of acrobatic saves. He later appeared in the 1970 World Cup Final, where Italy became tournament runners-up as they lost 4-1 to Brazil.

Albertosi was an unused squad member in the 1962 World Cup and the 1974 World Cup. He was similarly an unused back-up goalkeeper at the 1968 European Football Championship, which Italy won. In all he played 34 times for the national team.

At club level Albertosi represented Spezia, before making his debut in Serie A for Fiorentina in 1959, playing in a goalless draw with A.S. Roma. Albertosi represented Fiorentina until 1968, winning a European Cup Winners' Cup and 2 Coppa Italia. He later transferred to Cagliari Calcio where he won the 1969-70 Scudetto. He later won another championship medal with AC Milan (1978-79), along with another Coppa Italia (1977).

Albertosi was involved with the Italian "Totonero" betting scandal of 1980 and was ultimately suspended for 2 seasons. After winning the 1982 World Cup in Spain, the Italian football federation let him play again. He ended his career playing for Elpidiense (Serie C2), aged 44.
