Episode Summary

Alessandro Altobelli - Italy, 1982
Alessandro Altobelli's only appearance on the pitch during the 1982 World Cup came as a substitute in the final against West Germany, yet the Italian striker made the most of that chance. The skinny forward became the second player ever to come off the bench to score a goal in a World Cup final, netting his side's third goal in the 3-1 victory. Altobelli went on to play a bigger role for his national team later in the decade, and scored four goals during the 1986 World Cup before Italy was eliminated by France in the second round.moreless
