Italy 1993 - No.10 Baggio.

Widely regarded as one of the greatest Italian footballers of all time, Roberto Baggio came fourth in the FIFA Player of the Century Internet poll.
The best player of his generation, he inspired awe throughout the footballing world, and was beloved back home, yet never quite won over his, usually conservative, Italian coaches.

In 1993, Baggio was named FIFA World Player of the Year and won the Ballon d'Or.

Blessed with perfect poise and control he almost single-handedly led Italy to the World Cup Final in 1994, but missed the crucial penalty in the shoot-out against Brazil.
It proved to be another near-miss for one of the greats of the modern game.

Nicknamed the 'Divine ponytail' due to his hairstyle and buddhist beliefs, Baggio is the only Italian ever to score in three World Cups, 1990, 1994 and 1998, and holds the record for most goals scored in World Cup tournaments for Italy, along with Paolo Rossi and Christian Vieri.
