Giuseppe Casari (born April 10, 1922 in Martinengo) was an Italian football (soccer) player. Giuseppe Casari is one of the most notable Italian goalkeepers of the fifties despite being in the second division for some of his career. Born and raised in Bergamo he debuted for his local Atalanta in the 1944 regional championship and in Serie A the following year. In 1948 he was the starting goalie for the national team at the London Olympics but after a shutout against the U.S. five goals got past him against Denmark. He was part of the 1950 World Cup team as a reserve behind Sentimenti IV but in the inconsequential game against Paraguay Giuseppe Moro was called on instead. After the World Cup he went to Napoli where he earned four caps for the national team although he did not secure a permanent starting position(the national team had called up 12 goalkeepers in a matter of 15 years). An interesting occurrence of which he did figure in at the 1950 World Cup was at their disappointing 3-2 loss to Sweden. The frustrated Italian fans were taunting the team; Casari responded in kind inciting further chaos causing the team to have to flee in order to avoid being lynched.
