Antonio Roma is a former Argentine football goalkeeper.
Roma stayed with Boca until his retirement in 1972, becoming one of the biggest idols of the club, with total of 323 matches in all competitions. With the club Roma won the Argentine League of 1962, 1964, 1965, and the Campeonato Nacional 1969 and 1970. In 1969 he kept his goal clear for 783 minutes.
Probably the most remembered save by Antonio Roma was the penalty executed by Brazilian River's player Delem, that he sent to the corner. With only 2 rounds before the end of the championship, Boca and its all-time derby River Plate shared the first position at the local league. Boca was ahead 1:0 when referee Nai Foino conceded a penalty to River. After the save, the public invaded the field delaying the continuation of the match for 11 minutes. River was not able to change the score, and Boca finally won that championship.
