Ubaldo Fillol (born July 21, 1950 in San Miguel del Monte,
Buenos Aires), nicknamed El Pato ("The Duck"), is an Argentine
football coach and former goalkeeper. He took part of 1974, 1978
(where he was voted Best Goalkeeper) and 1982 World Cups
representing his country. He is rated as one of the best keepers
of Argentine Football History.
A curious episode occurred in 1978 World Cup when Fillol given
the jersey number 5, instead of 1 which is the standard for
goalkeepers. This happened because Argentina, at that time, gave
players their numbers alphabetically, except for one or two
players. The number 1 jersey was worn by Norberto Alonso. This
practice was last used in 1986.
