Daniele De Rossi, (July 24, 1983) is an Italian World Cup-winning footballer, who plays for AS Roma. Among his titles also the 2004 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship, and the bronze medal gained at 2004 Athens Olympic Games, all with the Italy national football team, are the most prestigious. De Rossi is a combative central midfielder. He is an accurate passer and has top vision. He is also a strong tackler and has an eye for goal.

Club career

De Rossi joined the youth system of Roma from Ostia Mare, where he had played as a striker in 2000. He made his first-team debut on 10 October 2001 against Belgian side Anderlecht in the Champions League. He made his Serie A debut on 25 January 2003 against Como. His first Serie A start, along with his first goal, came on 10 May 2003 against Torino.
In March 2006, De Rossi was praised by referee Mauro Bergonzi for fair play.[4] Roma were trailing 1–0 in a Serie A match against Messina, when De Rossi scored a goal with his hand, Bergonzi did not see the incident and allowed the equaliser to stand. However, De Rossi immediately told the referee that he had pushed the ball in with his hand leading to the goal being disallowed. Roma went on to win 2–1.
In the 2006–07 season, De Rossi scored from 40 yards against Fiorentina with Sébastien Frey in goal. This was the first of three goals of the night for Roma. He also scored the lone Roma goal in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Manchester United in the 2006–07 season.
In February 2012, De Rossi signed a new five-year contract with Roma. He became the highest paid Italian footballer in the Serie A at 6.5 million euro per annum. He stated that one of the main reasons of him signing with Roma is his coach, Luis Enrique, whom he thinks is the best coach he has ever worked with.

International career

De Rossi played many matches for the Italy national under-21 football team and was a regular on the squad that won the 2004 UEFA European Under-21 Football Championship. In the same year, he won a bronze medal with the Italy national football team at the Athens Olympics. A few weeks after returning from Greece, De Rossi earned his first cap in the senior squad, scoring on his debut in the 2006 World Cup qualifying game against Norway (2–1), at the age of 21.
2006 World Cup
De Rossi was named to the Italian national team in 2006. During a 2006 World Cup group stage match against the United States, De Rossi received a straight red card after he elbowed Brian McBride in the face. McBride left the pitch bloodied, but returned after treatment, later receiving three stitches. The BBC stated that De Rossi had "disgraced himself with a sickening, needless elbow on Brian McBride." De Rossi later apologised to McBride, who subsequently praised De Rossi as "classy" for approaching him after the match. De Rossi was subsequently banned for four matches and fined CHF 10,000.
After having been disqualified for four matches, De Rossi returned for Italy in the final against France, coming on as a substitute on the 61st minute for Roma teammate Francesco Totti. In the penalty shoot-out at the end of the match (which finished 1–1), De Rossi scored Italy's third penalty to help his country win their fourth FIFA World Cup.
Euro 2008
De Rossi played in all of Italy's Euro 2008 qualifying games, scoring a goal against Georgia. He was also given the honour of wearing the number 10 shirt after Totti decided to retire after the World Cup final. He captained the team on three occasions: two friendly matches against South Africa on 17 October 2007 and Portugal on 6 February 2008, respectively, and in the Euro 2008 qualifier against the Faroe Islands. On 17 June, during UEFA Euro 2008, De Rossi scored on a freekick deflected off Thierry Henry's left boot in a 2–0 win over France. This was his 5th international goal and guaranteed Italy's progress to the quarter-finals. In the quarter-final penalty shoot-out against Spain, his shot was saved by Iker Casillas as Italy lost the shoot-out 4–2. He scored his first double in the national team against Georgia on 10 September 2008.
2009 Confederations Cup
In the 2009 Confederations Cup on 15 June, De Rossi scored for Italy against the United States in the 71st minute with a low long-range strike. The goal put Italy 2–1 up after Giuseppe Rossi had equalized after Landon Donovan scored the opener in the first half. Italy went on to win the game 3–1 after Andrea Pirlo set up Rossi for his second of the game.
De Rossi is tipped by many to be Italy's next captain after Fabio Cannavaro, as De Rossi's dedication to international football is widely admired. An Italian fan favorite, he is noted to be a big game player, and plays a pivotal role in breaking down the opposition and being a box-to-box player. De Rossi has scored crucial goals for Italy in their 2008–09 World Cup Qualifying campaign. For Roma, De Rossi plays mainly as a defensive midfielder but for the Azzurri he gets farther forward with the presence of Gennaro Gattuso in the team as a holding midfielder, and, as a result, his goal ratio is much greater than at club level.
2010 World Cup
De Rossi scored Italy's first goal of the 2010 FIFA World Cup against Paraguay, making the score 1–1. And in the second match against New Zealand the penalty Italy scored to 1–1 committed on him. The game ended 1–1.

Personal Life

De Rossi is the son of Alberto De Rossi, former Roma player and Roma's Primavera coach. He married Tamara Pisnoli on 18 May 2006, the mother of his daughter Gaia and ex-dancer of Mediaset, Sarabanda. The couple separated in early 2009.
De Rossi made his debut for Roma wearing the number 27 shirt, which he wore for two seasons. He then switched to the number 4, which he also wore during the 2006 World Cup. With the birth of his daughter on 16 June 2005, he changed to number 16 during the 2005–2006 season.
De Rossi was chosen as Pringles spokesperson for UEFA's Euro 2008 football championship, along with other top European football players such as Thierry Henry, Fernando Torres, Alexander Frei, Philipp Lahm, and Michael Owen. He also appears in an Adidas Dream Big Commercial along with Steven Gerrard, Michael Ballack, and David Beckham.
De Rossi is featured on the cover of FIFA 09 in the Italian version of the game. The picture on the cover is taken from De Rossi's emphatic goal-scoring celebration after scoring versus Internazionale in the Supercoppa Italiana in 2008

If you spend more than two hours playing a game, take a
rest break. , there are pictures for each neighborhood, each job,
and each property, which match their written descriptions and convey the atmosphere
of the game very well. Staff at game retailers are the best to ask for advice.

That mentioned, sturdier doesn't necessarily mean more substantial.
This campaign saw TV commercials, magazine ads, and an overall buzz
about a Panama, which so few people even knew. Instead we should allow some of these banks to die.

ADVERTISING IS VITAL TO THE SUCCESS OF YOUR self publishing: http://authoru.org/publishing-rip-offs-scams-and-predators.html-PUBLISHING VENTURE.
But let it sit up to your youngster as to which books and how many
you truly do read. That's simply because they almost always
affect the reputation and future in the writer or that
relating to another person.
