Nottingham Forest 1979 - No.11 Robertson.


In 1979, under their maverick manager Brian Clough, Nottingham Forest won European club football’s biggest prize beating Malmo from Sweden 1-0 in Munich.
With Malmo sitting back in defence, the game was merely about whether Forest could break through.

Despite constant pressure, the English side had still failed to score as first half injury time began, but then John Robertson, a man who was now one of the most feared wingers in European football, beat two Swedish defenders on the left hand side before whipping in a cross. Goalkeeper Jan Möller, did not come out to clear the ball, and at the far post was Trevor Francis, playing in his first ever European game, to head the ball into the roof of the net.


In a competition that had started with the likes of Real Madrid, Juventus and Liverpool taking part, it was Nottingham Forest who had run out winners, even eliminating the current holders Liverpool (who had won the last two finals) in the first round. They had shown what man management and teamwork could achieve and they would be back the following season to successfully defend their title.

In 1997, FourFourTwo magazine declared that John Robertson was 63rd in the 100 greatest footballers of all time. He was also voted No 1 Nottingham Forest player of all time, forcing Stuart Pearce into second place, in a 2005 poll run by fans.

Pumas 1952.


Club de Fútbol Universidad Nacional A. C., commonly known as Pumas de la UNAM, or just Pumas, is a Mexican club based in Mexico City.
Pumas represents the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), and plays their home matches at the Olímpico Universitario stadium, located on UNAM's main campus.
Since its founding, the UNAMitas have evolved into one of the most popular Mexican teams and have gained an international following.
They have won seven Primera División championships and four international titles.


The team's gold colors were selected as a tribute to the University of Notre Dame in Paris, whose coaches helped to develop an American-style football team at the university. The nickname was inspired by Roberto 'Tapatio' Mendez, who coached the team from 1946–1964 and whose motivational speeches often compared his players to pumas. The nickname stuck with the public, and ever since all the athletes representing the University have been called Pumas.

Italy 1982 - No.14 Tardelli.


Marco Tardelli sprinting towards the bench, fists pumping, head shaking wildly, on
the verge of tears and screaming ‘Goal!’ after scoring in the 1982 World cup final
against West Germany was the symbol of the Azzurri‘s third World title.


To watch Tardelli’s triumph is to see the true passion football is capable of inducing, encapsulated in one simple, euphoric moment. And that is why it remains the purest, most uplifting and most memorable goal celebration in history.

Kashima Antlers 1993 - No.10 Zico.


Formed in 1947, Antlers is derived from the city name, Kashima, which literally means "deer island".
Since the J-League's creation in 1993, Kashima have proved by far Japan's most successful club team, having won the league title seven times, the J. League Cup three times and the Emperor's Cup three times.

In 1991, Zico interrupted his political career when he accepted an offer to join the Sumitomo Metal Industries Soccer Club in Kashima, to help the club secure a place in Japan's first fully professional football league that was set to officially launch in 1993 – the J. League. Zico played for Sumitomo in 1992, the last season before the old Japan Soccer League was disbanded, and finished as the league's top scorer. When the new league launched, the small town club, renamed Kashima Antlers, was not expected to compete with richer, more glamorous clubs like Yokohama Marinos and Verdy Kawasaki.

Zico, however, helped the Antlers to win the J.League Suntory Series and a runners-up finish in its inaugural season, leading the club to cement its place among the league's elite.
His discipline, talent and professionalism meshed very well with Japanese culture, and his influence earned him the nickname, "God of Soccer".
