Eduardo Ricagni is former Argentine born player who played for Italy as one of many "Oriundo's". He was very good player and unfairly underrated, I must say. In Italy he played as inside right mainly, but in Argentina he was probably used even as centre forward considering his excellent scoring record there. Ricagni, except of being lazy sometimes and not having quite a musculuos physique, had everything: outstanding dribbling and techniquee, good shot especially from volleys, elusive and fast, good passing range (especially great crosses for Nordahl), elegant ball control and great vision, real "fantasista". Ricagni began his career in 1944 with Club Atlético Platense where he scored 22 goals in 35 games. In 1947 he joined Boca Juniors where he scored his only hat-trick and won his only trophy with the club on his debut in a 6-0 win against Federación Tucumana in the Copa Ibarguren 1944. He played a total of 52 games for Boca in all competitions, scoring 23 goals. In 1949 he joined Chacarita Juniors wher he played where he scored 39 goals in 78 league games. He then moved across the Río de La Plata to Montevideo to play for relegation threatened Montevideo Wanderers, he scored 7 goals in 10 games during his brief spell in Uruguay to help the club avoid relegation. In 1952 he returned to Argentina to join Huracán where he scored 36 goals in 41 games and became the league top scorer in 1952. In 1953 he was signed by Juventus, he made his debut for the Italian club in a 1-0 home win against Udinese. He scored 17 goals in 24 league games for the club including a hat-trick in his penultimate game for the club in a 4-1 on 23 May 1954. Ricagni joined AC Milan in July 1954 in preparation for the beginning of the 1954-55 season. He won two Italian championships with Milan, the first in his debut season with the club and the second in 1956-57 although he had already left the club by the time they clinched the 1956-1957 championship. Between 1956 and 1958 he played for AC Torino and he ended his playing career after a season with Catania of Serie B. He won two Italian league titles and was the top scorer of the Argentine Primera División in 1952. Ricagni was eligible to play for the Italian national team as his father Pietro had emigrated from Italy to Argentina in 1912. He was selected to play on three occasions between 1953 and 1955. He made his debut in a 3-0 home win against Czechoslovakia on 13 December 1953 in which he scored a goal.

Stop the PSD copycats...
