Pen Pic

After spending time at a number of clubs in England and Italy on non contract terms without playing a first team game, Federici finally found his way to the Madejski Stadium in January 2005. It looked like he would be released at the end of the 2004/2005 season but when the club signed Graeme Stack as back up to Marcus Hahnemann, Federici stayed to cover Stack's upcoming court case that saw him miss a number of weeks of that season. By the time we were in the Premiership Federici was our number 2 goalkeeper and also spent time on loan at Bristol City.

In the 2008/2009 season Federici spent the first part of the season on loan at Southend but returned in December and almost immediatly found himself in between the sticks as Marcus Hahnemann spent 3 months out with a calf injury. His fine shot stopping and fantastic distribution saw him keep the jersey even when the American returned. He quickly became a favourite with the fans, especially when he scored a stoppage time equaliser against Cardiff on Boxing Day when up for a corner. It was infact the second goal of his Reading career after he scored the only goal in a 1-0 pre season win over Bromley in 2006 whilst playing upfront!

However Steve Coppell opted to put Hahnemann back in for his experience as we tried, but failed, to win the play offs. With Hahnemann leaving to join Wolves, Federici became the clubs number 1 and has kept this position ever since.

Went to the 2010 World Cup as Australia's number 2 goalkeeper.
