Enzo Francéscoli Uriarte (born November 12, 1961 in Montevideo) was a Uruguayan football player until his retirement in 1997.

His official debut was with the Uruguayan team Wanderers. Francescoli played for Uruguay at the 1986 and 1990 World Cups. He played several years for River Plate of Argentina. He also played for the French Racing Club de Paris (Matra Racing Paris at the time), Olympique de Marseille, and the Italian teams Cagliari and Torino.

Francescoli was noted for his grace and fluid abilities on the ball. These qualities would later influence the style of Zinedine Zidane who has stated that Francescoli was his favorite player as a young boy and even named one of his sons Enzo.

Francescoli is known as El Principe (Spanish) or Le Prince (French), which means The Prince.

He is one of the few players admired by most Argentine football team's fans. He was named by Pelé as one of the top 125 greatest living footballers in March 2004. He is also Vice-President of GOL TV and Tenfield.
