Alcides Edgardo Ghiggia (born 22 December 1926 in Montevideo, Uruguay) an excellent dribbler on the right wing, 1,69 m short and 62 kg light, is considered one of the best wingers of the 1950s. The World Cup winner of 1950 played for the national sides of Uruguay and Italy.

Ghiggia became a naturalized Italian citizen in 1957 he played between 1957-1959 for the national side of his adopted country.
