Giuseppe Rossi Biography
Giuseppe Rossi was born February 1, 1987 and is an American-born Italian footballer who plays for the Spanish club Villarreal as a second striker. He was born in Teaneck, New Jersey, in the United States, and has dual American and Italian citizenship; he made his debut for Italy in October 2008, scoring his first international goal in June 2009.
On July 31, 2007, Manchester United confirmed Rossi had been sold to Spanish club Villarreal for an undisclosed fee, reportedly around Â£6.6 million (-¬10 million). However, a clause was added to Rossi's Villarreal contract that allows Manchester United to re-purchase him at a later date. He scored his first goal for Villarreal on his debut against Valencia on August 26, 2007. In his second season with Villarreal, Rossi had scored 12 goals in 30 league appearances, along with three goals in eight Champions League appearances.
Rossi has represented Italy at almost every youth level from U-16 to U-21. In 2006, he was invited to a pre-World Cup training camp with the United States national team by then-coach Bruce Arena but declined, stating his desire to play for Italy. He was called up for the 2007 Euro U-21 by head coach Pierluigi Casiraghi. He scored four goals at the 2008 Summer Olympics, making him the top scorer for the tournament, despite only reaching the quarter final.
Italian national football team manager Marcello Lippi has stated that had Rossi been fit, he would have received a call-up for the 2010 World Cup qualifiers in September 2008. Rossi was called up to the Italy squad in October 2008, making his debut for the national team as a second half substitute against Bulgaria on October 11. Rossi scored his first goal for the Italian national team on June 6, 2009, in a friendly against Northern Ireland, at Pisa's Arena Garibaldi.
