Aldo Junior Simoncini

Aldo Junior Simoncini (born August 30, 1986) is a Sammarinese footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for San Marino club A.C. Libertas and San Marino national team. Simoncini is a full-time player along with national team captain Andy Selva.

He won the 2012/13 San Marino International player of the year, and the same title in domestic football in the same season.

International career

Simoncini has been with the national team for UEFA Euro 2008 qualifiers. He started the game against Germany. Germany scored 13 goals past him. Aldo was dropped for the game against the Republic of Ireland on November 15, 2006. He started the return game and was part of the San Marino team that were 3 seconds from their greatest result when Manuel Marani scored to make it 1-1. The Germany game was the second time he'd conceded double figures in international football, as in 2005 he was part of the San Marino under-21 side beaten 10-1 by Spain. He has a twin brother, Davide, who's also a footballer. He is currently playing for A.C. Libertas and the San Marino national team as a defender. The brothers each scored an historic own goal for Sweden on 7/9/10, the first time twins have ever done this in an international competition.

Other than 38-year-old forward Andy Selva, Simoncini is the only other semi-professional footballer in the country of San Marino; when not between the sticks for club or country, he is a bank accountant.
