AC Milan 1989 - No.9 van Basten.


Arguably the greatest goal scorer the game has ever seen, Marco van Basten
had everything. Quick, powerful, two footed with tremendous close control
and supreme in the air,
the 'Swan of Utrecht' was the complete striker.
Signed in 1987 from Ajax, he scored 90 goals in 147 games for 'il diavolo'.

Joined by countrymen Frank Rijkaard and Ruud Gullit, van Basten sparked the Italian club to multiple domestic League titles and Cup victories. He was named the Ballon d'Or winner in 1989 and 1990 as Milan won back to back European Cup titles.

In 1992, he became the first player to score four goals in a European Cup match and just the third player to win three Ballon d'Or Awards, alongside Cruyff and Platini.
Later that year he was crowned Fifa World Player of the year, to complete an amazing club career.


Unfortunately the ankle injuries that had occurred after years of brutal tackling from outplayed opponents finally took their toll the following season.

He returned for the last few games in the 1993 season, before Milan lost to Marseille in the Champions League final. The match was Van Basten's final game for the Rossoneri. The gifted striker spent the next two years undergoing multiple operations and rehabilitation before finally announcing his retirement in August 1995, at age 30.

The capital side is, along with Olympique de Marseille, one of only two French clubs to have won a European competition, claiming the UEFA Cup Winners' Cup in 1996.


In 1973 the logo was changed to the current and historic crest: the red silhouette of the Eiffel Tower and the royal cradle of Louis XIV between its legs.
Also in this year Canada Dry became the clubs first shirt sponsor.

Boca Juniors 1995.

Domestically, they have thirty league titles, second only to River Plate, their fierce rivals. Internationally, the team has won eighteen titles, a record shared with A.C. Milan.

Legend has it that in 1906, Boca played another team that used this strip to decide who would get to keep it. Boca lost, and decided to adopt the colors of the flag of the first boat to sail into the port at La Boca. This proved to be a Swedish vessel sailing from Copenhagen, and as a result, the yellow and blue of the Swedish flag were adopted as the new team colours.

AC Milan 1992 - No.6 Baresi.


Franco Baresi led the Milan team and its defence for the best part of a decade; a period during which Milan's defence was considered by many observers to be one of the best back fours in the history of football, along with Paolo Maldini, Alessandro Costacurta and Mauro Tassotti.

He is also one of the few players who spent his entire career at one club for whom he played 719 games, scoring 33 goals.
His Number 6 shirt was retired by the club, a rarity for Italian football.

Holland 1974 - No.14 Cruyff.


The World Cup final in 1974 was supposed to be player of the tournament Johan Cruyffs defining moment. Unfortunately for him the hosts Germany hadnt read the script.
It was a tribute to the Dutch that they were overwhelming favourites in a match against a German team that started with 6 players who had just won a European cup.
Maybe the fact Holland started so well, scoring before a German player had touched the ball led to a relaxed approach and goals from Breitner and Muller sealed their fate.


Cruyff was known for his technical ability, speed, acceleration and dribbling but his greatest quality was vision, based on an acute sense of his team-mates' positions as an attack unfolded. He played centre forward but would drop deep to confuse his markers or suddenly move to the wing with devastating effect. Due to the way Cruyff played his game, he is still referred to as "the total footballer".

In the early seventies he won 3 successive European cups with Ajax, the Ballon d'Or a record three times and is widely regarded as the greatest player of all time.

Napoli added their second Serie A title in 1990, pipping Milan by two points.
Adored by fans, the number 10 shirt was retired on his departure in 1992.
