Ernesto Castano Bio, Cause of Death, Children , Wife, Juventus and Italian soccer
Defender Ernesto Castano, who won the European Championship with his country’s squad in 1968, has away at the age of 83.
At all weekend league games, there will be a moment of silence to honor him. This has been organized by the FIGC. “It is yet another devastating loss for Italian soccer, according to FIGC president Gabriele Gravina. “He had the distinction of upgrading the central defender position and was a protagonist for Italy in ’68, which renewed the nation’s passion for the national team,” Gravina said.
He, Castano Azzurro, will always have our gratitude for this as well.” Balsamese by birth, he spent time in Serie B with Legnano and Triestina before joining Juventus in 1958, where he spent twelve seasons and won three Scudetti.
He made his national team debut in November 1959 against Hungary (7 of his appearances for the Azzurro) and participated in the 1968 European Championship, playing for Bulgaria in the quarterfinals, the Soviet Union in the semifinals, and Italy in the final.
