Another great gone.

Quote
Rossi won the 1982 World Cup’s Golden Boot and Golden Ball and, in the same year, the Ballon d’Or. “On one hand I felt fulfilled. I said to myself: ‘You’ve made it,’” he said in a 2018 Fifa documentary. “On the other hand, I was disappointed that all of this just ended. The World Cup was over.”

An excellent strategy. Rossi would score one goal. Grazziani? and friends would break the legs of anyone in the opposing team with temerity to step over the half way line. Italy win world cup.
