Angela Iannotta (born 22 March 1971) is an Italian Australian soccer coach and former player. As a forward, she represented Australia women's national association football team in the 1995 and 1999 FIFA Women's World Cups and played club football in Australia, Italy and Japan. Iannotta's equaliser against China in 1995 was Australia's first ever World Cup goal.[2]

Iannotta played alongside Italy's Carolina Morace in Agliana's 1994–95 Scudetto winning team. In 1996–97 Iannotta joined Cheryl Salisbury and Sunni Hughes at Panasonic Bambina of Japan's L. League. Two broken legs, sustained seven months apart, derailed Iannotta's progress in Japan and she returned to Italy. In 1998 she accepted a place on the Australian Institute of Sport Football Program, ahead of the following year's World Cup in the United States.
