Heroes of yester-year

With the World Cup over, I thought it’d be good to remind you not of today’s stars, but those from previous years.

First up is one of my all-time favourites, Andrei Kanchelskis. One of the reasons I liked United so much back then was their play from the wings, with Giggs and Kanchelskis being the fastest and best dribblers I’ve ever seen.

Next is one of Italy’s all-time greats, Roberto Baggio. He was their star of the 1994 World Cup. It’s a pity he’s remembered for missing the final penalty, rather than the 5 goals he scored to get Italy to the final, making him joint top scorer with Romario.

And finally, the best for last….
