Ernesto Grillo is legendary Argentine footballer who reached cult status by scoring "The Impossible Goal" in their first ever win over England. Grillo was player with unstoppable dribbling, very strong which was unusual for true No. 10, with perfect technique, had courage and quality, very brave player, true winner with strong legs, playing as second striker and offensive midfielder, later even more deeper in midfield. Since his debut in First League became an idol because he had the charisma of the elect. Born in Buenos Aires on October 1, 1929 and began in the fourth division of the Independent in 1947. He made his debut in First Division on 24 April 1949 and scored 192 goals and 90 official meetings until mid-1957, when he went to Italian football. Around him all hell broke sensational front that captured all the praise in the early '50s, and formed with Rodolfo Micheli, Carlos Cecconato, Carlos Lacasia or Richard Bonelli, Ernesto Grillo and Osvaldo Cruz. Delighted all and sundry, football and festivals offered true but not had the fortune to take the title, did much to the popularity of Independent. Of these, Grillo was the big star. That front was a milestone: For the first time in Argentina Team attack was entirely composed of the five men of the same club. On May 14, 1953 England beat Argentina's River Plate field with two goals scored by Grillo. This unforgettable evening, which would be in history as "the goal of the English Cricket" for the outstanding achievement of the number 10, the five Red Devils wowed the 100,000 fans who filled the stadium and proudly independent hearts. As in December of that year, when Independent toured Europe and beat Spain 6-0 to the famous Real Madrid of Alfredo Di Stefano. If the word spectacular had been created especially for a player, that player would have been Ernesto Grillo, hero of gigantic proportions, immortal in the sense of bloat. In 1953, in a match versus England, he scored a legendary goal for Argentina, which originated Argentine Footballer's Day. In 1955 Grillo was part of the national squad that won the South American Championship 1955. In 1957 he moved to Italy where he won the 1958-59 Serie A championship with A.C. Milan. He returned to Argentina in 1960 to play for Boca Juniors, where he played 101 matches and scored 11 goals in all competitions and won three league titles in 1962, 1964 and 1965.

I've finish my data search about him, here are some images, suggestions and arguments.

Era: It has to be 1953-1959, 1953 was the year when he start to have a real development as a player in C.A.I., that was the year when he score that great goal against England and he play with Rodolfo Micheli, Osvaldo Cruz, Carlos Cecconato y Ricardo Bonelli and when do that great performance against RM.

new image:


STA: according to what i find out, he was highly praised for his physical deployment on the field despite being an offensive midfielder, according to my sources he was "tireless" just great, imo 82 material.

AGI: Should be in 85ish since him was a player that usually show electrics moves around the field and imo his current DS value doesn't help him to reflect that.


* Turning Skills could be add.

Spoiler: show
