Raimundo Orsi

His career began in Argentina with Club Atletico Independiente , but it was with Juventus that Orsi would have the most success in his club career.

After leaving Italy, Orsi played the rest of his career in South America. He returned to Independiente before moving on to Boca Juniors, Club Atletico Platense and Almagro he also played for Penarol in Uruguay and Flamengo in Brazil.

His international debut for Argentina on August 10, 1924 was against Uruguay. Over the next 12 years, he played 13 times for Argentina and scored 3 goals.

This also allowed him to be a part of the side that won the 1934 World Cup, in the final of which he scored. He died in 1986 aged 84.
