World Cup Legend #10: Roberto Baggio.
Defeat can also be legendary. Who doesn't remember this image of a disappointed Roberto Baggio at the 1994 World Cup final?
Baggio played for Italy in 56 matches, scoring 27 goals, and is the fourth highest goalscorer for his national team. He starred in the Italian team that finished third in the 1990 FIFA World Cup, scoring twice. At the 1994 FIFA World Cup he led Italy to the final, scoring five goals, received the World Cup Silver Ball and was named in the World Cup All-Star Team. Although he was the star performer for Italy at the tournament, he is largely remembered for missing the decisive penalty in the shootout of the Final against Brazil.
