Notes

The ultmate poacher for me this little fellow! Slight of foot and amazing speed and reflex’s in the penalty area with a goal scoring record to match.

Very chequered career though but still up there with the most cunning of sniffers or goal-hangers as we used to say at school !

Won a World Cup winners medal in 84 in Spain with Italy after an astonishing personal performance, coming to the finals with hardly any training having been suspended by the Italian FA for a bribery scandal!

peace
