Luis Alberto Islas Ranieri is a former goalkeeper for the Argentina national team, Independiente, Estudiantes de La Plata and Leon.
Islas started his career as a goalkeeper in Chacarita Juniors in the early 80s. He started making a name for himself as the goalkeeper of Argentina's Youth Football Team that finished runner-up at the 1983 Football World Youth Championship. He earned his nickname el loco ("crazy") because of his flair and temperament.
In late 1982 Islas was transferred to Estudiantes, which had just sold goalkeeper Juan Carlos Delmenico. There, he alternated with Carlos Bertero in the team that won the 1983 Nacional championship title.
