Many have also won both the Copa Libertadores and World Cup.  In fact 1986
saw Ruggeri, Pumpido, Enrique, and god knows what other chicken win the WC,
Libertadores, and Intercontinental cup in the same year.  Pretty disgusting.

World Cup Review - 3rd Place Play-Off & Final

Post by Benn » Tue, 14 Jul 1998 04:00:00

CROATIA                         2-1                     HOLLAND
Prosinecki 12                                           Zenden 20
Suker 35

With Holland defending so high up the pitch, Croatia blasted through
their defence on the counter attack.. Suker passed to Jarni on the half
way line, Jarni charged upfield, passed to Prosinecki on the edge of the
box and spun around and shot into the bottom corner. Nice goal. Zenden
equalised minutes later, picking the ball up on the wing, cutting inside
and letting rip from just outside the box. A fantastic frog splash
celebration followed, he must watch Pro-Wrestling. Sukerman grabbed his
sixth goal of the tournament finishing off a brilliant passing move
initially started by the hero of France, Bilic, that also involved
Boban, Asanovic and an exquisite first time pass from Prosinecki. Best
team goal of the tournament, great shot too, similar to Jarnis goal
against Germany.

A great game of football for 60 minutes, once Seedorf had a goal
disallowed for offside the Dutch seemed to loose interest. Kluivert was
denied on two occasions by point blank saves from Ladic and the missed
an open goal after sending Ladic on his arse with a dummy. Bergkamp was
substituted and had an abysmal game, Im sure his hamstring is playing
up again. Croatia were content to sit on their lead. Bilic and Ladic
were brilliant, as they have been throughout the tournament.

Attendance : 45,500
Ref Rating : Excellent, let the game flow, although there were no
controversial incidents

FRANCE                          3-0                     BRAZIL
Zidane 26, 45
Petit 92

Zidane headed in Petits corner to give France the lead, comical
defending by Roberto Carlos (and not for the first time in this
tournament) led to the corner. Another corner, this time from the left
by Djorkaeff was again headed in by Zidane. A counter-attack wrapped up
an emphatic win, Dugarry broke with the ball from a Brazil corner,
passed to Viera he laid the ball off for his Arsenal team-mate Petit to
sweep in Frances 3rd.

Lots of confusion prior to the match surrounding Ronaldos fitness and
clearly judging on his performance he wasnt fit. The scoreline flatters
Brazil, their defending was Sunday league standard, even Baiano, who has
been one of the best central defenders in this tournament got caught
cold on a number of occasions from long balls over the top. Ronaldo and
Bebeto may as well not have played, Dunga showed his age. Guivarch
missed a hat-trick of chances, Dugarry also blew an easy chance when one
on one with Taffarel. Zidane had an excellent match. Desailly earned his
second yellow card after a clumsy challenge but on both occasions the
Brazilians made the most  of the contact. Lizarazu had an awful game.
Petit was outstanding. Some excellent approach play from France let down
by poor finishing, despite the scoreline. Needless to say, Brazil were
simply awful.

The first new nation to win the World Cup since Argentina in 1978. I
think  Desailly, Deschamps and Barthez become the first players since
Beckenbauer, Muller and co back in 1974 to win International and Club
footballs biggest prizes, the World Cup and European Cup respectively.

Attendance : 75,000
Red Card(s) : Desailly 67 (France)
Ref Rating : Excellent

No. There are also Cabrini, Scirea, Tardelli and Rossi (Italy 1982
and Juve 1985) plus Kohler and Reuter (Germany 1990 and Borussia
Dortmund 1997); and of course you have forgotten Karembeu
(Real Madrid 1998 and France 1998).

Yes, of course. And there are also Rai, Cafu and maybe some
other paulistas there too. I just didn't want to
get into the "European Cup is great, Libertadores is a Mickey Mouse Cup" debate
(on which I'm sure we share the same view, while Benny doesn't).

Come to think of it, Massaro, Baresi (Italy 1982 and Milan 1989, 1990, 1994),
and Vierchowod (Italy 1982 and Juve 1996) also belong to this
group, even though none of the three had any playing time in 1982.
Now, if Inter wins the European Cup next year, Bergomi could
becaome the player who has won the top international country
and club awards at the most distance one from the other.

Don't forget the mighty Andreas Moeller. He and the other mentioned
Germans won the WC 90, the EC '96 and CL '97.

I wasn't sure Moeller was part of the 1990 WC squad. What about Riedle?
He would also qualify. And there's also Giovanni Galli (3rd goalie
for italy in 1982, and EC1 winner with Milan in '89 and '90)

Add Bobby Charlton as well.

As far as I know, only Germans have won the *3* biggest prizes available
to Europeans, EC1, WC and Euro Champions.  And a lot of them have done
it (Beckenbauer, Muller, Maier, Kohler, Moller, Reuter, etc.)

That's because only two other nations have won both WC and EC- Italy,
who won their EC in 1968, 14 years before they won the WC, and France,
in 1984, 14 years before the WC.
Note: Matthaeus won the EC in 1980, the WC in 1990, but never won EC1.
