Roberto Rosato was a famous Italian defender in '60's and '70's, he was a classic player of Italian football-style in these years. In the first years of his career he played as half-back in A.C.Torino and reached soon the Italian National Team, aged 22, in Stuttgart (13-3-65) against West Germany. In this friendly match Rosato had some troubles with German forward Konietzka, and many German newspapers gave him the nickname "killer".

Rosato played a defensive football and his most important skill was the tackle, but he wasn't a bad player or a "killer". In '66 Rosato joined A.C. Milan and Nereo Rocco, his former manager in A.C. Torino. At A.C. Milan, Rosato played as full-back with Schnellinger, Malatrasi and Anquilletti and he became one of the best Italian defenders in his place.

In Mexico '70 World Cup he became the Italian team stopper after Niccolai was injured in the first match against Sweden and he played all the matches until the final . His best game was the semi-final against West Germany when he stopped German forward Gerd Muller until the extra-time. When Rosato was substituted Muller scored twice !

Rosato had many knee's troubles in his career and he left A.C. Milan aged 30 in 1973 and played his last years in F.C. Genoa. Rosato won a "scudetto" in 1967-68, three "Coppa Italia" (1964 A.C. Torino, 1972 and 1973 A.C Milan), a Cup Winners Cup (1967-68), a Champions Cup (1968-69) and an Europe-South America's Cup (1969)

Didn't he have a stronger shot? I watched some matches from 1970 WC some time ago and he sometimes even had solid attempts on goal from the distance..
JeanMarc, any opinion there? I guess you know him better, maybe I confuse this player with someone else but I'm quite sure that it was him..

I suggested that on the previous site but the author didn't answer. I still think he could get a higher value..

Sorry, I didn't look on the old forum. Anyway, SP should be raised. I saw you suggested 85 on the other forum or do you think about a higher value? IMO 85 or even 86 would suit him much better than 80..
Btw, really underrated player IMO..

DMF shouldn't be optional, he played like that in the UEFA Euro 1968 final..

He could play in the midfield too, in the NT he played mostly there, until the chenges made by Valcareggi in the 1970 WC.

85 or 86 should be enough, but he needs higher SA as well. He had good placement on his shots, it's a pity he played when it was forbidden for defenders to cross half way line so didn't have too much chances to show it. He was two-footed player, he could shoot from distance with left and right foot, without much difference.

BTW I'd lower STA on 84, and TMW also for couple of points down. Meanwhile DEF can even be higher, he was the best marker in Italy in 60's and 70's alongside Guarneri. Great tackler with well timed reactions to dissposses his opponents. MEN maybe can get a slight boost as well..I don't think he needs DMF among positions..

So what about the following changes:
DEF: 90 -> 92
SP: 80 -> 86
SA: 64 -> 71
STA: 86 -> 84
TMW: 87 -> 84
WFA/WFF: 5 -> 6
MEN: 86 -> 88
