- World Cup 1990 -

The 1990 FIFA Football World Championship was hosted by Italy. Scoring six goals, after only having been capped once prior to the tournament, Toto Schillaci was a surprising World Cup hero. But his bid to follow in the footsteps of his idol Paolo Rossi, by leading his country to World Cup victory, faltered as Italy went out on penalties in the semi-finals. The final was a repeat of the 1986 edition, with West Germany and Argentina squaring off once more. But with Maradona only a shell of his former self and the Germans no crowd pleasers either, the game was a severe disappointment. An 85th minute penalty provided the only goal.
