Alberto Orlando (born 27 September 1938) is an Italian former footballer who played at both professional and international levels as a midfielder or as a forward. Although not gifted with the best technical ability, he was a fast, physical, energetic, opportunistic, and powerful player, who was good in the air; he often played on the wing or through the centre of the pitch.

Club career

Born in Rome, Orlando played for Roma, Messina (briefly on a season loan from Roma), Fiorentina, Torino, Napoli and SPAL 1907 throughout his career. He is mostly remembered for his seven-year club career with Roma, the team with which he won the 1960–61 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, and the 1963–64 Coppa Italia, forming a formidable partnership with Giampaolo Menichelli. In total, he managed 142 Serie A appearances and 34 goals in Serie A with Roma. During his time at Roma, he was briefly loaned to Serie B side Messina during the 1958–59 season, scoring 17 goals in 30 appearances. After leaving Roma, he moved to Fiorentina, where he also achieved notable success. He became the Serie A top scorer during the 1964–65 season, alongside scudetto winner Sandro Mazzola, and he helped the club to a fourth-place finish in the league. That season, he also helped Fiorentina to reach the final of the 1965 Mitropa Cup. Orlando spent his final season with Serie B side SPAL, making 6 appearances, before retiring in 1969.

International career

Orlando represented the Italian national team between 1962 and 1965, making 5 appearances, and scoring 4 goals. After his notable and positive successful performances with Roma, he made his international debut against Turkey, on 2 December 1962, in Bologna, in a UEFA Euro 1964 qualifying match. Orlando scored all 4 of his international goals in Italy's 6–0 victory. He also appeared in the return leg, where he suffered a temporary injury.
