Brescia-L'Aquila coppa ItaliaGoalkeeper Nicola plays for Serie B club Spezia Calcio on loan from Juventus. He has represented Italy at the U17, U18, U19, U20 & U21 levels. (Man, waiting to move up as a ‘keeper for Italy has gotta be worse than even Spain, isn’t it? Gigi Buffon made his debut for the Italy U16 team the year Nicola was born. He’s been on the senior side since Leali was 4, albeit not first choice goalkeeper that whole time!)

Updated: Rest In Peace: Piermario Morosini

14 Apr

Horrible news: Livorno midfielder (on loan from Udinese) Piermario Morosini collapsed during a match with Pescara. He never regained consciousness and was pronounced dead on arrival at the hospital. He was 25. For everything that went right with Fabrice Muamba’s resuscitation attempts, it seems the opposite happened in this case (read the article for details).  It is an even more tragic story when you learn a bit about his personal life. Piermario was orphaned and had two disabled brothers, one of whom passed away last year. It sounds like so much sadness in a such a short life. In his career, Piermario played for, in addition to the previously mentioned teams, Vicenza, Bologna, Reggina and Padova. He represented Italy at the U17, U18, U19, U20 and U21 levels. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends, teammates and those who loved him. Just heartbreaking.

Updated: This story gives more details – the earlier report of two brothers was incorrect. He is survived by an older sister.
