José Canteli is a former inside right. Born in San José del Rincón, Santa Fe (31/05/1917), Canteli started playing for amateur team Gimnasia y Esgrima (SF). Aged 23, Canteli was sold to Newell's Old Boys for a $22.000 fee, which was highly unusual for his time and team. Canteli made an immediate impact on the leper, finishing top scorer of the Argentine First Division in 1941, scoring 31 goals in 30 games. At Newell's Old Boys, he played 76 games and scored 60 goals, thus remaining in the history of Newell's Old Boys as one of the top scorers in the club's history. On April 4th, 1943, Canteli would be called up to the Argentinian National Team, making his debut against Uruguay and scoring a goal. Despite his good debut, he was never called up to the national team again. At the end of 1943, he moved to Platense, where he played 5 years and scored 37 goals in 75 games leaving a big mark on the team. He then went to Colón in 1948, which was in the second division at the time. In Colón, Canteli broke several records, including finishing as the all-time top scorer in official matches in the Santa Fe Derby with 8 goals (still in effect) and also becoming the top scorer in the club's history, with 103 goals (a record later broken by Esteban Fuertes in 2009). It is also important to highlight his match in the final of the 1950 Copa de Honor, in which Colón obtained their first official title, beating in the final their eternal rivals, Unión de Santa Fe, by an aggregate of 4 to 2 with two goals from Canteli.

Newell's Old Boys (1940-1943) - 76 games, 60 goals
C.A. Platense (1943-1948) - 75 games, 37 goals
C.A. Colón (1948-1952) - 122 games, 103 goals

:ARG: Los reportes periodísticos de fines de la década del '40 y principio del '50, incesantemente marcan a las actuaciones del goleador sabalero José Belarmino Canteli como decisiva y fundamental por el aporte de sus magníficas conquistas. Jugaba de entreala derecho y se le destacaba el tener un remate certero y potente, además de una gran potencia física.

:ENG: The journalistic reports of the late '40s and early '50s incessantly mark the performances of the sabalero scorer José Belarmino Canteli as decisive and fundamental for the contribution of his magnificent achievements. He played as an inside right and stood out for having a pretty accurate and powerful shot, as well as great physical power.

Francisco Ghiano, former-president of C.A. Colón during Canteli's time wrote:
:ARG: Canteli había sido el único goleador de los dos más importantes torneos argentinos, fue un jugador notable, unió el olfato por el gol, además de una aptitud casi única para moverse en todo el frente del ataque durante 12 temporadas (Newell's, Platense y Colón). Los hinchas sabaleros que poblaban el viejo estadio del barrio Centenario preparaban su garganta cada vez que el "Chengo" ingresaba al área rival.

:ENG: Canteli had been the only top scorer in the two most important Argentine tournaments, he was a notable player, and he had an instinct for goals, as well as an almost unique ability to move along the entire attack front for 12 seasons (Newell's, Platense and Colón). The Colón fans who went to the old stadium in Barrio Centenario prepared their throats every time "Chengo" entered the rival area.

Journalist in Colón vs. Millonarios, 1950 wrote:
The "Blue Ballet" that defeated Real Madrid twice in Spain, with an unforgettable humiliation, hired, in the famous exodus to Colombia, Antonio Báez and Julio Cozzi (Platense), Adolfo Pedernera and Hugo Reyes (Huracán), Reinaldo Mourín (Gimnasia y Esgrima de La Plata and Independiente), Alfredo Di Stéfano and Néstor Raúl Rossi (River Plate).
To finish the tour in Argentina, a friendly game was organized in Santa Fe. Colón categorically defeated Millonarios, 4 to 1, and in only 20 minutes, "Chengo" Canteli scored three goals against the notable international goalkeeper Julio Cozzi, who reacted and ran him for several meters "for not respecting my hierarchy", Julio said, both being ejected from the field. With 10 minutes left, the local striker returned and scored one more goal for his team.

Alejandro Fabbri, football history journalist wrote:
:ARG: Los Sabaleros se hicieron invencibles en su campo y mantuvieron un larguísimo invicto que duró desde el 9 de mayo de 1948 (0-0 con Almagro) hasta el 7 de diciembre de 1952, cuando Quilmes lo superó por 2-1. En total fueron 71 partidos consecutivos sin derrotas en su estadio, con 54 victorias y 17 empates. Habrá que investigar para encontrar una racha positiva de local que la pueda superar. En esos cinco campeonatos, el mejor jugador de Colón fue sin dudas José Belarmino Canteli, quien hizo 103 goles, rompiendo marcas en 1949 al alcanzar los 43 tantos en un año. Canteli era un talentosísimo insider derecho, con excelente pegada y poderío físico que se había destacado previamente en Newell's y en Platense.

:ENG: The Sabaleros became invincible on their home field and remained undefeated for a long time that lasted from May 9, 1948 (0-0 with Almagro) until December 7, 1952, when Quilmes beat them 2-1. In total, there were 71 consecutive games without defeats in their stadium, with 54 wins and 17 draws. We will have to investigate to find a positive local streak that can overcome it. In those five championships, Colón's best player was undoubtedly José Belarmino Canteli, who scored 103 goals, breaking records in 1949 by reaching 43 goals in one year. Canteli was a very talented inside right, with an excellent shot and physical power who had previously stood out in Newell's and Platense.
