TOP SCORER
Rossi celebrated after scoring another goal at the 1982 World Cup
His involvement in the match-fixing scandal inthe Italian league meant that he had to serve a ban and did not play in the league again until April of 1982, only two months before the World Cup inSpain.  He was selected for the national team and did not score in the first four games.
HAT-TRICK HERO
Rossi (number 20) scored 3 times to eliminate Brazil in a World Cup classic.
Coach Bearzot remained faithful to his striker and Rossi repaid him with a world-class scoring performance - a stunning hat-trick against favourites Brazil.  He continued his amazing scoring form with two against Poland in the semi-final and the opening goal against West Germany in the final.
