Panini fail : Ian RUSH

Rush made his Welsh debut before he had been handed his first start for Liverpool, playing his first match on 21 May 1980 against Scotland in Glasgow, a 0–1 loss. He played his last international match on 24 January 1996 – a friendly match against Italy in Terni which Wales lost 0–3. Rush played regularly for the Welsh national team for more than 15 years, scoring 28 goals (Welsh record) in 73 games. He scored in a friendly against Italy in Brescia on 4 June 1988, the only goal in a shock win. During his career the team never qualified for a major tournament, although in 1991 he scored the winning goal in a memorable Euro 1992 qualifier against Germany on 5 June 1991. On 9 October 1992, he netted a hat-trick in a 6–0 win over the Faroe Islands at Cardiff Arms Park in 1994 FIFA World Cup qualification, the first Welsh hat-trick in over 13 years, and one of only 14 in the nation's history. So the sticker on the left is a fake than I made, first for the topic Ian RUSH : The Integral. But this week-end I find a nice fail in the Colombian Panini album of 1989. In this album and as the national team has benne qualified for the 1990 World Cup, Panini made a special double page with the future stars of the Italian World Cup. Of Course you can see the national idol on the top Carlos Valderrama and others stars like Diego Maradona, Gary Lineker, Dragan Stojkovic, Enzo Francescoli or Ruud Gullit (All OSP's legends as you can see on the right column) and also Ian RUSH for.... United Kingdom !!! Perfectly like Gary Lineker. A big fail for Panini Colombia who didn't know that Gary Lineker played for England and Ian Rush for Wales.

  1. Je ne sais pas de quand date exactement cette page (1989, oui mais quel mois ?) car il me semble que ni le Portugal, ni le Mexique ni la Suède n'ont été en Italie en juin 1990...

  2. It does England and Wales next to their names. Technically, UK flag is the right flag for England and Wales(just not in football :-)

  3. La Suède y a participé (éliminé au premier tour par le Brésil, Costa Rica et Ecosse). Mais pas le Portugal ni le Mexique.

  4. Et Bernd Schuster ne jouais plus avec RDF depuis 1980, je crois

    And Bernd Schuster hadn't played for West Germany since 1980.
