Morosini to be remembered with minute's silence
MILAN (AP) -- The Italian Football Federation announced Monday that a minute's silence in memory of Livorno's Piermario Morosini will be held at all matches until April 22.
Morosini, who was on loan from Serie A side Udinese, collapsed and died after suffering a cardiac arrest during a Serie B match at Pescara on Saturday. He was 25.
Livorno has officially retired Morosini's No. 25. Vicenza - where Morosini spent two seasons on loan from 2006 before returning for a second spell last year - did so on Sunday.
Meanwhile, Udinese and the Italian Footballers Association have both set up collections for Morosini's disabled sister. Morosini's mother died when he was 15 and his father died two years later. His brother died a short time later.
