Uruguay 1984 - No.9 Francescoli.


Enzo Francescoli is one of the best players in Uruguay's history, and a huge favourite with fans. “El Principe” holds the record of most appearances for an outfield player in the national team and helped Uruguay to win Copa America three times. He also won the South American footballer of the year in 1984 as well as 1995.

As an attacking midfielder he was noted for his vision, grace and fluid abilities on the ball. These qualities would later influence the style of French midfielder Zinedine Zidane, who has stated that Francescoli was his favorite player as a young boy and even named one of his sons Enzo as a homage to him.

He was an oasis of light in a dark time for Uruguayan football – A gifted play maker, once described as a football architect, Francescoli was also just about the only member of the hard-as-nails Uruguay team who did not seem primarily driven by the urge to kick his opponent off the field.
