        Hey guys!  Do you guys remember Paolo Rossi?  I saw the game Germany and Italy  
from 82 again in Telemundo this weekend.  Following the match, the briefly interviewed  
Paolo Rossi about what it meant to win the world cup.  Paolo Rossi still looks skinny, but you  
can tell he's gotten older by his looks.  I was quite thrilled to see Rossi again especially after  
he knocked out my favorite team from the competition, Brazil.

My favourite WC. In spite of England's 1966 title....

What a great story he was. I know that _I_ thought he was all washed up and was
a sentimental selection. What was it? 6 goals? With the hat-trick against that
great Brazil side? Hadn't he just been reinstated after a match fixing scandal
ban or something? (my recollection of the details may be a little foggy).

I can't stand watching this guy, even after all these years. He ***ed
us /Poland/ during the Cup, so however he looks, I don't care.
They /Italians/ didn't deserve to be in the finals, yet to win it all.
The only way they won against us /Poland/ because Boniek, got a YELLOW
CARD /#2/ before the italian game, for....
..being first guy in the wall during free kick. Some call!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ref new what he was doing...or just coincidence...Nobody knows, for sure!
So Rossi, whenever you are, I don't even want to talk about you!!!!
Even, after the Cup'82, while playing for Juventus, He was one selfish
S.O.B.!!! Thanks to Platini and Boniek, Juventus won all those trophies.
So, why I don't like Rossi, because He was a "garbage" type of a player
picking all those loose balls and rebounds and he eliminated my country.
By the way, he shouldn't have been pardoned before the Cup. And spent
the rest of the punishment watching from a window of his cell.
As you can see, time didn't heal my wounds...
Because soccer is not a way of life, IT'S LIFE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I hope Brazil will KICK EVERYBODY'S ASS!
Peace...

CUT THE CRAP!! ITALY won it all, they were the best.  Rossi kicked some ass.

As for Brazil... They will get their asses kicked just like every four years
Pele is history, so is Brazil!
I will not get into this but after Brazil loses, you can bet that I will rub
it in more!!
till their next loss...

        After his three goals against the arrogant favourits Brasil my
        admiration was absolute. No one can deny he was a great player at that
        time, no matter his fading away afterwards.

Not quite correct. Paolorossi was playing for Perugia when he was
involved in the first "scandalo delle scommesse" (bet scandal). It
happened in 1980.

Lanerossi Vicenza (the team that owned him and was playing in Serie
B) got his problems a few years later, in 1986, during the second
bet scandal. However, even though it's true that they were not
promoted to Serie A, they were not relegated to Serie C1. They
simply had to stay in Serie B.

It was Perugia that, the very same year, got the relegation to Serie
C1, also with a penalization of 15 points in the future standings.
This sentence was then changed with a fairer direct relegation to
Serie C2 with a penalization of just 2 points.

BTW, it took Perugia eight years to come back from this punishment.

Rossi was banned for *** on football, along with several other stars.
It was a major scandal in Italy.  He was reinstated at the last minute.  He
did not even play in the first few games.  But after Italy struggled badly
in the first round (3 points in 3 games: no wins!!  Actually none of the
4 teams in that group won a game; really boring) the old timers like Causio
were benched and Rossi got to play.

'82 also saw the emergence of several new stars: Conti, Bergomi (only a ***ager
then), Altobelli.

Re the Brazil game: Italy's wingers Conti and Grazianni had great games, partly
because Brazil's fullbacks were always up front and left the Italians wide open.
Rossi's hat trick was not surprising given the good feed from his teammates,
with major assistance from the missing Brazilian defense.  One of Rossi's goals
was a direct gift from the Brazilian defender.

The shame of it was that Brazil did not even have to attack.  They only needed a draw
to advance.  Italy had to win.  but it was Brazil which did most of the attacking.
Maybe that's all they know, or all they want to do.  For that I'm for ever gratefull.
By not playing "smart", they covered themselves with glory, unlike some other teams.
The last thing we need is more travesties like the Germany-Austria game.

He had returned from a ban which saw his club Vicenza (the city where
Roby Baggio was born and played for at 15) relegated to the third division.
They were to be promoted from second to the first until they were
implicated in match riggings..

My my.........Jealousy is a CURSE
Italy were ordinary in the first three games but then were clearly the better
from there onwards. Don't forget that unlike Poland Italy had to
qualify in a group containing Argentina and Brazil...they outdone them all..

Forza Italia

        Paulo Rossi DID play in the first round.

        I watched all the games in the round and they were NOT boring but
        rather exciting since all were so close and you never knew until the
        last game.

Quote:

        Actually Altobelli was already a star for Inter but Rossi was
        prefered.

        Bergomi was only 17 at that time, and he was a sub.

        The regular back four was Screa (sp??) who passed away, Gentile, and
        Antonio Cabrini, all of Juventus, and Colovati of AC Milan.

        Actually when the Italia played Argentina the Itatians did well, and
        scored 2 goals.  I think Cabrini scored a goal, as well as Macro
        Tardelli (if I am correct...)

        Rossi played well too in that game.

        In the game against Brasil Rossi finally came into the "game" and
        scored all three, and 2 more in vs. Poland, and 1 in vs. Germany.

        I would say it was his effort rather than pure luck.

        Actually Italy did well in the game against Brasil.

                ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
I think your mistaken.. the first four games were draws the fifth between
Poland and Peru saw the South Americans flogged 5-1
Italy drew with Cameroon in the last game to qualify for the second round
