Lucas Castroman

April 29, 2001. Derby. Lazio was losing 2-1 and there were 30 seconds to go. Sinisa Mihajlovic took the corner, the ball was cleared outside the penalty box, and in came Lucas Castroman who managed to keep the ball low and score. From then on Castroman stops being a football player and becomes a legend.


Born in Lujan, Argentina, on October 2 1980 Lucas started his career at Velez Sarsfield in 1998 and stayed there until the winter transfer window of 2001 when he came to Lazio. A good right winger, he arrived in a team that had won the scudetto and was full of great players. One cannot really say that he was a champion but he was a good player and very generous.


He stayed with Lazio for three years, not really playing at lot: 37 games in Serie A (4 goals), 6 in Coppa Italia (one goal), 4 in Champions League and 8 in the UEFA Cup (one goal).


In 2003 he was loaned for a year to Udinese and then sold definitely back to Velez Sarsfield a year later. He stayed with Velez until 2007 when he joined Club America in Mexico. In 2008 he had a brief stint in Argentina again with Boca Juniors and in 2009 he joined Racing de Avellaneda. He ended his career early, at just 30 years of age, in 2010.


Not the greatest of careers, but Lazio fans will never forget him.
