Juan Alberto "Pepe" Schiaffino Villano (born 28 July 1925 – 13 November 2002) was an Uruguayanmarker-Italianmarker football player. He played forward, in particular with CA Peñarol and AC Milan, and won the FIFA World Cup 1950 with the Uruguayan national team.


Schiaffino started to play in the Italian Serie A in September 1954. He played 171 games with AC Milan and scored 60 goals, and participated in the 1958 European Cup Final, which Milan lost to Real Madrid 2-3 (aet).

National teams

Schiaffino played for two national teams; first with the Uruguyan national team from 1946 to 1954, and later with Italian national team from 1954 to 1958.

He had 21 caps with the Uruguyan national team (eight goals) and four caps with the Italian national team.

Schiaffino participated actively in Uruguay's victory in the World Cup 1950, scoring one goal in the final and beating Brazil in its own stadiummarker, in what was called the Maracanazo. He also played in the World Cup 1954 (fourth place).


World Cup 2006

It was reported on ESPN's World Cup Live premier show that Schiaffino would be attending the opening ceremony of 2006 FIFA World Cup to be held on Friday 9 June. The organizing committee obviously misspoke as Schiaffino died four years prior.
