First Maradona and now Paolo Rossi who has passed away aged 64. Who can forget his performances in 1982? Always in my best-ever Italy side up top with Luigi Riva. A sad loss.

Too right mate. To beat a fantastic  Brazil side then West Germany in the final shows how good they were. Rossi was so skinny compared to the lumps we were used to seeing ! And that kit, quality  RIP

The game against Brazil - the team everyone thought was going to win it - was brilliant. As for the final, after the debacle of  that semi-final against the French, I think the entire world with the exception of West Germany, wanted Italy to win. If memory serves, the Germans were up to all kinds of shenanigans in that tournament.

They played out the fixed 1-0 against Austria and thus eliminated Algeria.

 

@erskblue if your picture of Remi Moses and Rossi was at OT, I was at that match. Juventus were far too savvy for United that night after what had happened to Barcelona the round previous. Funny thing was after tickets were fetching silly money outside the ground for the Barca match, my mate couldn't attend the Juve match and we couldn't even get face value outside for ground for his ticket.

No idea, just saw the picture and I remembered Rossi scored against Utd. Double checked and found he’d actually scored in both legs .

The Barca game (2nd leg) was the highlight of that season. Juve were a different proposition.
