GIORGIO CHINAGLIA, the soccer star who led ITALY's LAZIO to the 1973-74 SERIE A championship before becoming one of the stars of the NEW YORK COSMOS in the heyday of the NORTH AMERICAN SOCCER LEAGUE, died SUNDAY (4/1) of complications from a heart attack at his NAPLES, FL home. He was 65.
CHINAGLIA, who was the NASL's all-time leading scorer and played alongside PELE and FRANZ BECKENBAUER during the COSMOS' run celebrated in the documentary "ONCE IN A LIFETIME," most recently co-hosted "THE FOOTBALL SHOW" on SIRIUS XM RADIO with CHARLIE STILLITANO.
