Antonio Valentin Angelillo
Antonio Valentin Angelillo (born 5 September 1937) is an Argentine former football forward who played the majority of his professional career in the Italian Serie A, and was a member of both the Argentine and the Italian national teams.
Born in Buenos Aires, Angelillo started playing professionally in Arsenal de Sarandi in 1952, played in 1955 with Racing Club de Avellaneda, and moved to Boca Juniors in 1956.
Angelillo, along with his countrymen Omar Sivori and Humberto Maschio acquired the nickname "the Angels with Dirty Faces" when they moved to Italy in the latter part of the 1950s on account of their typically South American colour and flair. They were also known as The Trio of Death because of their clinical finishing.
