Angelillo died on 5 January 2018, in a hospital in Siena, at the age of 80.


Although Angelillo was Internazionale's highest goalscorer while he was playing there, he did not win any titles with the Nerazzurri. When the club appointed Helenio Herrera as the team's new manager, Angelillo's independent nature, rebellious character, and hedonistic lifestyle off the pitch led to several disagreements between the two; as a result, Angelillo was sold to Roma during the 1961–62 season, for 270 million lire, in spite of offers in Argentina from his former club, Boca Juniors.

From 1961 to 1965, Angelillo played 106 games with Roma in Serie A, scoring 27 times, winning the 1960–61 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup, and the 1963–64 Coppa Italia with the club. He then spent one season at Milan, scoring one goal in 11 matches. The following year, he signed with Lecco, playing 12 matches and scoring one goal, with the team being relegated to Serie B at the end of the season. Wanting to return to first division football, he subsequently had a trial with Napoli, before agreeing to return to Milan as a reserve; he only made three appearances, scoring one goal, winning the 1967–68 Serie A title with the club, although he did not appear in Milan's victorious 1967–68 European Cup Winners' Cup campaign that season. In order to gain playing time he then moved to Genoa in Serie B, where he made 22 appearances, scoring five goals. His next and last team was Angelana, which he joined in 1969 as a player-manager, before retiring from professional football in 1971.


After moving to Italy and acquiring Italian citizenship through his grandfather, Angelillo later appeared for the Italian national team, making his debut in a 2–1 away defeat to Austria on 10 December 1960, although, in spite of the presence of several foreign-born Italian players – including his compatriots and former teammates Sívori and Maschio –, he was left out of the Italian squad for the World Cup in Chile two years later; in total he made two appearances for Italy between 1960 and 1962, scoring 1 goal, which came in his second and final appearance – a 6–0 home victory over Israel, held in Turin, on 4 November 1961.

Angelillo was married to Bianca, and had two children. Prior to his marriage, while playing for Inter during the 1960–61 season, he had a much publicised affair with the dancer Attilia Tironi – whose stage name was Ilya Lopez – whom he had met in a nightclub. His father was a butcher.


During the 1958–59 Serie A season, Angelillo scored 33 goals in 33 matches, finishing the season as the tournament's top scorer. His goal total was the highest since Gunnar Nordahl had scored 34 in the 1950–51 Serie A season, and is still the record for most goals in a single 18-team Italian division season; no player scored as many goals in a single Serie A season until Gonzalo Higuaín finished the 2015–16 Serie A season with 36 goals – until then, the only player since Angelillo to break the 30 goal barrier had been Luca Toni, who scored 31 goals during the 2005–06 Serie A season. With 38 goals for Inter in all competitions throughout the 1950–51 season, Angelillo holds the club record for most goals in a single season, alongside Giuseppe Meazza.


Angelillo was part of the Argentina national team that won the 1957 South American Championship. That team, and its forward line in particular, was nicknamed The Angels with Dirty Faces (a reference to the then-celebrated Angels with Dirty Faces movie) due to both their irreverent style of play as well as to their less than rigorous attitude to training. The nickname followed Angelillo when he, along with fellow national team forwards Omar Sívori and Humberto Maschio, moved from Argentina to play football in Italy after the tournament. There, the trio was also known as The Trio of Death due to their clinical ability in scoring goals.

In 1957 Angelillo was signed by the Italian club Internazionale by the club's president at the time, Angelo Moratti; he made his Serie A debut with the club on 8 September 1957, in a 0–0 home draw against Torino, and scored 16 goals in his first season. From 1957 to 1961, he played 127 games with the Nerazzurri, scoring 77 times. In Serie A, he appeared in 113 matches and scored 68 goals for Internazionale, also serving as the club's captain.

In official tournaments, Angelillo played 11 matches and scored 11 goals for the Argentina national team. During the 1957 South American Championship, which Argentina won, Angelillo was tied for the second-most goals in the tournament, with eight in six matches, scoring in all matches but the last one against Peru After the tournament, he and two other Argentine players (Omar Sívori and Humberto Maschio) were bought by different Italian club teams, and, as a result, the trio were banned from playing for the Argentina national team by the Argentine Football Federation, and missed out on the 1958 World Cup in Sweden; Argentina were eliminated in the first round of the competition.


Born in Buenos Aires, Angelillo started playing professionally in Arsenal de Llavallol in 1952. In 1955 he played with Racing Club de Avellaneda and moved to Boca Juniors in 1956.
