Facundo Sava (born 7 March 1974 in Ituzaingo) is an Argentine professional football player who currently plays as a striker for Quilmes of the Argentine 2nd division. He is perhaps best known for his legendary goal celebration where he donned a mask which was stored in one of his socks. He is also eligible to play for the Palestine national football team.
He started his career at Ferro Carril Oeste before earning a move to Boca Juniors in 1996. It wasn't long after his move to Boca, that he was sold on to Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata. In 2002, Sava was sold to Fulham for 2 million; from there, he enjoyed a loan spell to Celta Vigo. After a permanent move to Celta Vigo, he helped them secure promotion to the Spanish First Division. He then moved to another Spanish second division team; Lorca Deportiva, but returned to Argentina in the middle of 2006 to play for Racing Club de Avellaneda.
