Argentina - Germany FR (1986)

When Argentina’s Jorge Luis Burruchaga appeared to knock the ball a touch too far ahead of him, having made a lung-bursting 40-yard run to get on the end of a sublime first-time pass from Diego Armando Maradona, West Germany custodian Harald Schumacher could not be seen in the TV shot. And while fans of La Albiceleste were surely cursing that “the keeper is going to cut it out”, their Die Nationalmannschaft counterparts must have been wondering “where’s Schumacher?”


There were only six minutes remaining of normal time in the Final of the 1986 FIFA World Cup Mexico, and just three minutes earlier the Germans had underlined their trademark resilience by levelling the match at 2-2 – having been two goals down.

Diego Maradona in Mexico '86

“It's incredible how many things people have told me about that goal. They said I knocked the ball on too far in front of me; that I ignored [Jorge] Valdano shouting for it to my left; that [defender Hans-Peter] Briegel almost caught me. But all I was focusing on was the goal in the distance,” recalled Burruchaga. “I didn't see Valdano running alongside me through the middle, and nor did I hear Briegel behind me. It felt like the longest, most exhilarating run of my life.”

Fortunately for Burru, luck was on his side when it came to the aforementioned heavy touch. Having initially decided to clip the ball over the onrushing Schumacher, he ended up sliding a low shot through the legs of the then Cologne No1. The score now 3-2, the strike finally knocked all the fight out of Karl-Heinz Rummenigge and Co and secured a yearned-for second World Cup crown for Argentina.

An unexpected Final 
Pre-tournament, La Albiceleste had touched down on Mexican soil earlier than any other side. Renowned for his attention to detail, coach Carlos Bilardo’s determination to ensure his squad were fully acclimatised to conditions in Mexico City – 2,200m above sea level – meant his charges found themselves at CF America’s training complex 30 days before the competition began. What's more, their shaky performances in qualifying and in warm-up matches had left Argentina supporters with scant hope of a repeat of their 1978 world title.

“The team arrived in Mexico low on confidence and nobody gave us much of a chance. On top of which there was a great deal of tension within the camp,” said Valdano. “But, as the World Cup went on, the squad grew stronger and showed a great deal of character. I'd say that it was the biggest turnaround I've seen in my life. Before the first game we weren't even sure we'd beat Korea [Republic], but by the last game we had no doubts whatsoever that we were going to beat Germany.”

Meanwhile, opponents West Germany boasted a squad packed with talented performers, including the likes of Rummenigge, Rudi Voller, Felix Magath, Pierre Littbarski, Andreas Brehme and Lothar Matthaus, though they too did not arrive at the World Cup in promising form. Indeed, Rummenigge, Voller and Klaus Allofs were all carrying injuries, “Our whole attack was crumbling,” summed up Matthaus, years later.

Nor did the oppressive heat aid the Europeans’ cause, with their opening three group games in Queretaro still remembered for cases of heat stroke suffered by their players. Even so, coach Franz Beckenbauer’s team gradually began to grow in strength and spirit, leading to victory over tournament sensations and then European champions France in the semi-finals. “The atmosphere was incredible and, in a way, that World Cup was ‘a summer fairy tale’ too” said Schumacher.

Shaktar Donestk



Ask anyone to think about Ukrainian club football for a moment and the first team that tends to spring to mind is Dynamo Kiev. They dominated the football scene in the eastern European country for decades, winning over 20 titles while fielding countless national stars over the years, including Andriy Shevchenko and Oleh Blochi. Recently, however, Shakhtar Donetsk have emerged as a second domestic heavyweight and are well on the way to stepping out of Dynamo’s shadow.
The birth of an institution Shakhtar are, quite literally, a workers' club. In 1936, approximately nine years after Dynamo were founded, Stakhanovets Donetsk was formed as a metal works' sports club. Just two years later the side, made up primarily of mountain labourers, was competing in the Soviet top flight.
The start of the Second World War stalled their progress and it was only in 1945 that the ‘Mountain Men’, as they are also known, began to play again. A year later, the club changed its name to its present form.
Shakhtar plied their trade almost exclusively in the Soviet first division up until the 1990s, only suffering the ignominy of relegation once, in 1971. By 1975 they had returned to rub shoulders with the country's elite and even finished as runners-up. It was to be their highest placing in the league as the club failed to win the title before the break-up of the Soviet Union.
The ‘Orange-Blacks’ did manage four cup triumphs (1960, 1961, 1980, 1983) however, as well as lifting the Soviet Supercup in 1984 and reaching the third round of the UEFA Cup in 1976/77.

The Donbass Arena, Donestk

The making of a legend
After Ukrainian gained its independence in 1991, the title consistently became a two-horse race between Shakhtar and Dynamo, although the latter usually came out on top. The new league's inaugural season aside, the championship trophy was always won by one of the big two. Between 1993 and 2001, the club from the capital even lifted the title nine consecutive times, with Shakhtar taking the silver medal on six occasions.
It was not until local billionaire Rinat Akhmetov - the country's wealthiest man, who also owns steelworks, investment firms and media companies - took over in 1996 that Shakhtar developed into a more serious rival. In 2009 the oligarch also built the brand-new Donbass Arena, which served as a venue at UEFA EURO 2012. Akhmetov is reported to have already invested 500 million of his estimated 16 billion Euro fortune in the club.
In 2002 Shakhtar won the league title for the first time and although Dynamo hit back with two successive championship triumphs of their own, there was now no stopping Shakhtar’s rise.


The present
Shakhtar were crowned Ukrainian champions a further five times between 2008 and 2013 and secured a hat-trick of domestic doubles in that period. The club’s success and healthy bank balance led to an increase in the number of top-class players donning their colours in recent years. Shakhtar won the UEFA Cup in 2009, becoming only the second Ukrainian team, after Dynamo, to triumph in a European competition. They were also the last side to lift the UEFA Cup trophy before the tournament was renamed the UEFA Europa League. On top of that, Shakhtar also raised a few eyebrows across the continent with one or two notable victories.


The club’s hierarchy are satisfied that their way of running the club has borne fruit. They no longer have to look at the training facilities and youth academy enjoyed by Dynamo with envy and have been buoyed by their ability to attract foreign stars to the Ukraine. Furthermore, Shakhtar invest heavily in promising Brazilian players, with Eduardo the only one to have been brought in from a European rival, namely Arsenal. Numerous other players have arrived at the club from Atletico Paranaense, Corinthians, Cruzeiro Belo Horizonte, Gremio, Internacional and Vasco da Gama, with Shakhtar prepared to wait patiently for them to develop.
While some of the youngsters may eventually be tempted away by English or Spanish sides, it is clear that the club also have a good eye for spotting talent, as well as having the necessary funds to back them up.
Shakhtar still need a few more years until they can think about equalling Dynamo’s haul of silverware, and they will not be satisfied until they do so. It is a state of affairs that is guaranteed to keep fans on the edge of their seats for the foreseeable future.


The stadium
The Donbass Arena, which cost approximately €176 million to build, was opened in 2009 and hosted five matches during EURO 2012: three group stage encounters, one quarter-final and one semi-final. UEFA awarded the 51,500 capacity stadium its maximum five star classification.

Italy - Argentina (World Cup 1990)

Today we are goint to speak about a classical match that took place in the FIFA World Cup 1990 celebrated in Italy. On one side were three-time world champions Italy, a global footballing powerhouse hosting the FIFA World Cup™ for the first time in 56 years. On the other were an Argentina side looking to retain the title they won at Mexico 1986 and boasting the legendary Diego Maradona in their ranks.



The Maradona factor lent a touch of controversy to the game. Staged as it was at Naples’ Estadio San Paolo, the local tifosi were torn between supporting the Napoli idol and their national team, adding to the spice of a match made appetising enough by the fact there was a World Cup Final place at stake.

Played on 3 July 1990, the showdown exceeded all expectations, as La Squadra Azzurra and LaAlbiceleste served up what was without doubt one of the most vibrant and unforgettable matches of the whole competition.

Argentina produced their best football of Italy 1990 after the restart, and pulled level on 67 minutes when Maradona picked out Olarticoechea on the left and the defender swung in a cross that Caniggia glanced past the advancing Zenga and into the net. After 517 minutes of play, the Italians had conceded their first goal of the tournament.

A man down, La Albiceleste retreated into their defensive shell, and with the Italians unable to break through, the game went to penalties. Baresi, Jose Serrizuela, Baggio, Burruchaga, Luigi De Agostini and Olarticoechea all converted from the spot to leave the shootout tied at 3-3, at which point Goycochea flung himself to his left to deny Roberto Donadoni and Maradona coolly slotted home to put his side ahead. The Argentinian goalkeeper then guessed correctly again to keep out Aldo Serena’s spot-kick and send Carlos Bilardo’s men through to their second consecutive Final.

Italy recovered from their heartbreak to shade England 2-1 in the match for third place, a game in which Schillaci once again scored, the Italian striker thus ending the tournament as its top scorer. This Italy side would form the core of the team that went on to reach the Final of the 1994 FIFA World Cup USA™, where they lost on penalties to Brazil.

Argentina paid a heavy price for their exertions against the Italians. Shorn of the services of the suspended Giusti, they would also have to do without Caniggia in the Final against West Germany, the blond-haired striker having picked up his second yellow card of the competition in Naples. A tired Albiceleste side failed to fire in the showpiece match and were undone by Andreas Brehme’s late penalty. They have since failed to reach the last four of the FIFA World Cup.

AC Milan - AS Roma

Origins

In terms of trophies, AC Milan hold the upper hand, having won 17 league championships and five Coppa di Italia to Roma’s three scudetti and nine national cups, a competition record. The gap between the two sides is even greater when international silverware is taken into consideration.

Milan’s trophy cabinet features one FIFA Club World Cup, three Intercontinental Cups, seven European Cup/UEFA Champions League trophies and two European Cup Winners’ Cups. Meanwhile I Giallorossi have just a Fairs Cup success to their name, achieved in 1961, though they have finished European Cup and UEFA Cup runners-up, each on one occasion.
Milan - Roma (San Siro, 2006)
It goes without saying that the passion generated by the rivalry lacks the intensity of the Milan derby or its Rome counterpart. What gives it a special edge, however, is the fierce competition between the cities the two clubs represent: Rome, the administrative capital of Italy, and Milan, the country’s financial capital.

Facts and figures
I Rossoneri have a clear advantage in the head-to-head, winning 69 of the 150 league matches the two have contested, drawing 44 and losing 37. The northerners even have the edge at the Stadio Olimpico with 26 wins, 27 draws and 22 defeats in 75 meetings there. Yet while AC Milan have recorded the biggest win to date in the fixture, 6-2 on 28 May 1950, the Roman side can point to the most dramatic comeback, recovering from 4-1 down just after half-time to draw 4-4 on 27 January 1935.

Where Milan cannot match their Roman rivals is in the number of Italian players who have won the FIFA World Cup™ while playing for them. While I Giallorossi have had 11 Nazionale world champions in their ranks over the years, from Attilio Ferraris IV (1934) to Bruno Conti (1982) and Francesco Totti (2006), Milan can only count on eight, including Pietro Arcari (1934), Franco Baresi (1982) and their Germany 2006-winning quintet of Gennaro Gattuso, Alberto Gilardino, Filippo Inzaghi, Alessandro Nesta and Andrea Pirlo.

Legendary names
Many are the great players who have run out for these two giants of the Italian scene. Leading the way for Milan is the peerless Paolo Maldini, who made 902 appearances for the club and 126 for Italy between 1984 and 2009. Also taking their place in the Rossoneri pantheon are Gianni Rivera, Franco Baresi, Frank Rijkaard, Ruud Gullit, Marco van Basten, George Weah, Andriy Shevchenko and Kaka, while Gattuso, Nesta and Clarence Seedorf are still representing the club with pride, all of them having helped pen some of the most glorious chapters in its story of sustained success.


Francesco Totti and Alessandro Nesta (Milan, 2006)

Agostino di Bartolomei, Falcao, Pietro Vierchowod, Roberto Pruzzo, Bruno Conti, Gabriel Batistuta, current coach Vincenzo Montella and Marco Delvecchio are just some of the stars who have performed with distinction for Roma over the years. However, pride of place must surely go to Francesco Totti, a Roman born and bred and the greatest player in Giallorossi history.

Like his erstwhile international team-mate Maldini, Totti is a member of the dwindling band of players who have devoted their careers to just one club. In 607 matches for his beloved Roma since 1993, the feisty playmaker has carried his team time and time again, becoming the club’s highest Serie A scorer of all time with 206 goals, making him the fifth leading marksman in Italian league history. A fierce competitor, Totti will be intent on showing Milan on Saturday that his scoring days are not yet behind him.

Another famous figure in Milan history is current owner and Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi. A lifelong fan who made many a trip to the San Siro with his father Luigi during his childhood years, Berlusconi bought the club on 20 February 1986 and triggered a renaissance in Milan fortunes. Following on from the golden years of the 1950s, illuminated by the Swedish trio of Gunnar Gren, Gunnar Nordahl and Nils Liedholm (collectively known as Gre-No-Li), and the unforgettable achievements of coach Nereo Rocco in the 60s, Berlusconi brought in the no-less successful Fabio Capello and Carlo Ancelotti, both of whom took the club to the top in Italy and Europe.

Roma had a legendary president of their own in Franco Sensi, who died in 2008 and was succeeded by his daughter Rosella, who made light of an increasing lack of resources to keep the club in the upper echelons of Serie A. Roma were taken over on 15 April by Italian-American businessman Thomas di Benedetto, who in becoming the institution’s 21st president, said: “Roma is a princess and we are going to make her a queen.”


Nowadays, Milan and Roma do not cross his best football but remain a major in Italy. With Juventus lead Italy, Roma fight directly enter Champions League and Milan to enter Europe League. Soon they become good times for these teams have always been among the best in Europe.

His football career began when he was a child 8 years and started playing for a team called San Fernando in Maspalomas. I had to move because there was in his village youngest teams no choice.

FC Barcelona - Real Madrid (El Clásico)

There are few sporting contests that carry quite the same passion as a Real Madrid-Barcelona clash. Their meetings regularly captivate millions of fans, not only in their homeland but across the footballing world.

As the big day approaches, countless Spaniards, including many who would ordinarily be immune from the charms of the beautiful game, get swept along by the fervour of the big event and don the colours of their favourites.


Real Madrid - FC Barcelona (Santiago Bernabeu, 2014)
Over the last decade, with the Galactico era in Madrid and the dominance of European club football by Barça, a number of world champions have faced off. These star names include Roberto Carlos, Fabio Cannavaro and Zinedine Zidane for Los Blancos as well as Ronaldinho and some of the stars of Spain’s FIFA World Cup-winning side of 2010: Xavi, Andres Iniesta and Gerard Piqué.

However, it is not just in recent times that the teams have had such a glittering array of stars at their disposal. Down the years some of the greatest players ever to grace the sport have taken the field for the big two, including Di Stefano, Ferenc Puskas, Santillana, Hugo Sanchez, Emilio Butragueno and Michel for Madrid, and among others Ladislao Kubala, Luis Suarez, Johan Cruyff, Diego Maradona, Hristo Stoichkov, Ronald Koeman, Rivaldo and Romario for the Blaugrana.

Side swappers
And there is another even more exclusive list of players worth mentioning, those who took the brave decision to take the Puente Aereo (the route connecting Barcelona and Madrid) and swap clubs. Di Stefano, Bernd Schuster, Michael Laudrup, Luis Enrique, Luis Figo and Ronaldo are just some of the stars who broke the hearts and invoked the wrath of their former supporters, for whom changing allegiances is an act of unforgivable treason.

Real Madrid-Barcelona games have produced more than their share of anecdotes, amazing results, legendary performances and enmity ever since the pair first crossed swords in 1902, a match the Catalan side won 3-1. The first league meeting came in 1928, when the Merengues inflicted a painful defeat on the Blaugranain their own back yard.

Six years after their 1928 encounter, Real Madrid trounced the Cules 8-2 in a 1935 league match in the capital, although Barcelona, led by Hungarian Ladislau Kubala, would exact a measure of revenge by walloping their foes 7-2 in front of their home fans in 1950.

The Di Stefano derby
In 1953 the two sides were in confrontation again, this time in a battle to secure the services of Alfredo Di Stefano. One month after the dispute was settled in favour of the capital side, the legendary Argentine they called the Blonde Arrow began a love affair with the fans of the Bernabeu by scoring twice in a 5-0 thrashing of the old enemy.

Twenty years on in 1974, with Dutchman Rinus Michels at the helm and his compatriot Johan Cruyff at his mercurial best, it was the turn of the Blaugrana to post a 5-0 scoreline, and at the Bernabeu for good measure. Two decades later Cruyff, by then Barça coach, presided over another 5-0 drubbing, as his Dream Team lorded it over their rivals at the Camp Nou, with Romario running Francisco Buyo ragged and scoring an exquisite hat-trick.

Barely 12 months later at the Bernabeu and the shoe would be on the other foot. This time it was the visiting keeper Carles Busquets (father of Sergio) who had his goal breached five times, with a hat-trick form Chile's Ivan Zamorano doing most the damage. The game was also notable for the presence in the victorious Madrid side of Michael Laudrup, a player who just a year earlier had played for Barça in their famous 5-0 at the Camp Nou.

A decade down the road, fans of the Merengues were certainly made to suffer at the hands of their greatest rivals. Not only did they have to watch as their sworn enemies claimed both the Spanish and UEFA Champions League titles, but they felt honour bound to stand and applaud an inspired Ronaldinho after his two wonder-goals helped Barça to a 3-0 win at their stadium.

After the Brazilian’s departure, it was the turn of Lionel Messi to take the famous Barça No10 shirt. The little Argentinian scored his first Clasico goals in March 2007, grabbing a Camp Nou hat-trick in a pulsating 3-3 draw. Cristiano Ronaldo, his Madrid-based rival, has had his own say in this fixture in the past, scoring an extra-time headed winner in the 2011 Copa Del Rey final.

El Clasico has developed into world football’s most hotly-anticipated derby match. Whenever the two meet, the world grinds to a halt to watch the stars collide.


From "Gol fuera de casa" as Spaniards believe it is a game worth always look due to the number of stars that come together in the field . Since beginning the season until recently , this party is marked by all football fans. Hopefully soon have a chance to see this game in the UEFA Champions League this year.
