Episode Summary

Paolo Rossi - Italy, 1982
After a long-term suspension and a return to action only weeks before the 1982 World Cup, Rossi was a questionable inclusion for Italy. But the opportunistic forward made the most of his chances in the tournament's later stages, notching a hat trick against Brazil and then scoring both goals in a 2-0 semifinal win over Poland. Italy went on to dominate the final against West Germany, with Rossi's 57th-minute strike -- his sixth goal of the tournament -- sparking the Azzurri's 3-1 victory for a third World Cup title.moreless
