Gabriel BATISTUTA with the Deportivo Italiano

In summer 1978 when Argentina won his domestic World Cup, Gabriel Omar Batistuta, a nine year old, living in a small city of Reconquista in the province of Santa Fe, dreamt of one day replicating the heroics of the likes of Mario Kempes, Daniel Passarella and Leopoldo Luque. In pursuit of his dreams Batistuta switched from basketball and started kicking a football on street corners. He was drafted into the Platense Junior team by a watchful scout. While at Platense, Batistuta broke into a bigger Reconquista team and went on to win the provincial championship against the youth team of the renowned Newell’s Old Boys, scoring two goals in the process. Impressed by his performance Newell’s Old Boys snapped him up. A year later, at the age of 19, Batistuta signed a professional contract with Newell’s. However, he experienced an unpleasant debut season and was loaned off to Deportivo Italiano of Buenos Aires. In february 1989 Batistuta and the Deportivo Italiano played the friendly tournoiment "Coppa Carnevale". The Argentine team was in the "death group" with Milan AC of Van Basten and the Napoli of Diego Maradona. With two 0-0 face of the italian monsters the Deportivo made a good impression and versus CSKA Sofia Gabriel Omar Batistuta scored a hat-trick for a 3-0 victory. Then when he went back to Argentina, Batistuta joined one of the titans of Argentine football – River Plate.

La papinade de Bixente

19 Février 2000, Bixente LIZARAZU prouve à l'Europe entière qu'il va mieux. En Effet le basque faisait son retour la semaine précedente en Bundesliga après un repos forcé de 3 mois en raison d'un blessure. Et le champion du monde va soigner son retour sur les pelouse en inscrivant son premier but de la saison (son troisième en bundesliga). Face à Duisburg, suite à un coup franc tiré de la droite par Stefan Effenberg, Lizarazu démarqué aux 16 mètres, sur la gauche de la surface de réparation, réalise une volée digne de notre JPP national. Une toile d'araignée en mois, c'est parfait. Un lizarazu ravi qui déclarera après la rencontre : "c'est le plus beua but de ma carrière" et on le croit sans peine. Un but important pour le club bavarois car Duisburg venait juste de revenir au score 2-1 deux minutes auparavant. Finalement, Lizarazu et ses coéquipiers d'imposent 4-1 et maintiennent une avance confortable sur le Bayer Leverkusen. Mais ce but il est plus important uqel es chiffres tellement c'est un régal pour les yeux : 

Le secret de Bixente pour réaliser une telle volée ? L'entrainement et une nutrition saine comme le prouve cette pub deux ans auparavant : 

Roberto BAGGIO + Andrea PIRLO

In the 2000-01 season at Brescia, Roberto BAGGIO playing behind two strikers in the ‘trequartista’ role. This allowed the Italian coach to utilise Pirlo as a ‘Regista’, a role we often see him occupy today. In essence, the graceful central midfielder was a deep-lying playmaker who sat just in front of the central defenders with two ball winning midfielders either side of him. It turned out to be an inspired decision and one that ultimately had a long term influence on Pirlo’s career. Pirlo went on to make ten appearances for the Biancoazzurri, contributing five assists, his most notable of which coming against Juventus. The playmaker did what he does best, picking the ball up in his own half and floating a perfectly weighted pass over the Juve defence for Baggio, who majestically controlled the ball, rounded Edwin Van Der Sar and rolled the ball into the empty net to give Brescia a late equaliser at the Stadio Delle Alpi. This outsanding goal : 

Roberto BAGGIO : Top 20 Best Goals

Few players have contributed as much to the Italian and world game as Roberto Baggio. Sublimely gifted and fiercely driven with it, Il Divino Codino (The Divine Ponytail) enjoyed an exceptional career on both the domestic and international stage, a career he came agonisingly close to capping with the ultimate prize. Troubled throughout his playing days by recurring problems with his right knee, Baggio lacked nothing in courage in attempting to overcome his injury curse, and made up for a relative lack of stature with flawless technique and an instinctive ability to read the game. Though he spent his entire club career in Italy, starting with Vicenza in the third tier in 1982 and ending with Brescia - 204 Serie A goals later - in 2004, Baggio had legions of admirers around the world, among them current UEFA President Michel Platini, one of his predecessors as a lethal creator and taker of chances for Juventus. “Baggio is neither a typical No9, nor a typical No10," explained the Frenchman. "He’s more of a No9 and a half." Here it comes his Top 20 best goals :

Once Upon A Time Roberto BAGGIO

In 1989 Napoli Italian champions were playing Fiorentina at home. A young, thin, tiny looking player called Roberto Baggio with a shock of long curly black hair picked up the ball in his own half. He then seemed to move with it in a strange diagonal direction. As one defender came towards him, he shifted straight towards goal, and with a little skip over another defender's leg, breached the entire defence. Almu.i without needing to dribble, thanks to a remarkable sense of the space of the pitch, he was through on goal. There, as usual, he was cool enough to dribble past the goalie, get the ball caught up in his legs and still have time to slide it into an empty net. In his career, Baggio scored dozens of goals as good as this one, some of them just as good as Maradona's second goal against England in the 1986 World Cup. Baggio has also been the most prolific penalty taker in Italian football history, converting 86 per cent of his kicks. How odd, then, that he should be remembered above all for a penalty he missed, in the searing heat of the Pasadena stadium: the miss that decided the 1994 World Cup final.

Like many great players, Roberto Baggio has an unprepossessing physique; you would not notice him in a crowd. Yet, that anonymous build masks an elegance of touch and movement rarely seen on a football field. When Baggio scored his two-hundredth league goal in 2004 - after a trademark dribble and perfect side-foot - TV stations showed many of his past efforts. A very high percentage of his goals were items of sheer beauty chips, dribbles, free-kicks, volleys. In the 1990 World Cup he scored the goal of the tournament against Czechoslovakia after a run and delicate chip. Moreover, Baggio scored all these goals from a position that was not that of a pure forward very few were tap-ins or headers  and often for minor clubs - Brescia, Bologna, Fiorentina. Roberto Baggio was born to a well-to-do family in the Veneto rural town of Caldogno in February 1967. His first games were with Vicenza, the best local team, and it was there that he suffered the first of a series of terrible knee injuries that have plagued his career. Turning sharply (in May 1985) he twisted the cruciate ligaments in his right knee. Baggio did not play again properly for nearly two years, after re-injuring the same knee nine months later.

In the meantime he had been signed by Fiorentina. In Florence, he quickly became a hero, striking up a formidable partnership with striker Stefano Borgonovo.20 With Baggio, and Eriksson on the bench, Fiorentina qualified for Europe and got to the UEFA Cup final in 1990. Baggio started to unveil his whole repertoire of goals for the viola fans - the perfect free-kicks, the tight dribbles, the ability to stay cool under pressure. Against Milan, in the San Siro, he again took on the whole opposition defence, and scored. As a penalty-taker, Baggio often waited for the goalkeeper to move. He missed very few, fewer in fact than any other player in the history of Serie A. In 1990 news started to spread in the Renaissance town that Baggio had been signed by arch-rivals Juventus. Fiorentina had just lost the UEFA Cup final to Juvc after two violent games. Fans rioted, and the police were called, but it was too late. Baggio had gone, never to return. Baggio chose Juve at the wrong time. The team had just been re-founded under the 'modern' leadership of manager Gigi Maifredi, who had taken Bologna from Serie C to Serie A. Although 'the divine ponytail' scored regularly, the team did very badly, finishing a disastrous seventh. Nor did Baggio endear himself to the Juventus faithful by his loyalty to Fiorentina. In the Fiorentina-Juve match in April 1991, Juve won a penalty. Baggio refused to take it, and it was missed. He was then substituted, and on his way to the bench picked up and put on a Fiorentina scarf. Weeks of argument followed.

At the end of the season, Maifredi was sacked, and Juve returned to old favourite Trapattoni. Baggio continued to score hatfuls of goals, winning the UEFA Cup in 1993 and being made European Footballer of the Year. He became the key player for the national team, taking the team almost single-handedly to the 1994 final. But domestic honours eluded him. When Trapattoni was replaced by Marcello Lippi in 1995, Juve went on to win the championship, but the relationship between Baggio and his new manager disintegrated. He played a mere seventeen games in that championship-winning season (with eight goals), and moved to Milan the following year. Baggio's fame led to frequent arguments with many of the managers he played under, and he always railed against tactical instructions. Milan's fans (as with all Baggio's teams, apart perhaps from the juventini) loved Baggio, but once again he was marginalized by a succession of managers. He only turned out 51 times in two years for Milan, winning another championship. Desperate to get back into the national team, Baggio decided to move to a smaller club, Bologna.His best season followed: 22 goals and a call-up for the 1998 World by popular demand . In France, manager Cesare Maldini absurdly left him out of the key matches, although he was a hair's breadth from knocking out the eventual champions and hosts with a golden goal attempt. Back in Milan, this time with Inter, the old problems with Lippi re-emerged. Left on the bench, his talent seemed to be going to waste. By the end of the season, his relationship with Lippi had deteriorated so much that the two hardly spoke. He left his mark in his final game for Inter, a playoff for a Champions League place, where he scored two classic goals to give Inter victory. Baggio later criticized Lippi in the first of two highly successful autobiographies, writing that 'he is not my enemy. I simply have no respect for him, just as he has no respect for me.' For a time it seemed as if Lippi would even sue Baggio over this and other comments.

Once again, his career seemed over, but was revived by a small provincial club - Brescia. With Baggio in the team, Brescia reached the heights of seventh place and competed in Europe. In 2002, yet another knee injury seemed to have put paid to Baggio's romantic hopes of one last World Cup with Italy. A miraculous recovery, just 76 days after the injury (and with two goals in his comeback match), put pressure on Trapattoni to pick him, but the miracle did not happen, despite special websites and phone lines dedicated to the campaign: Baggio in nazionale! During the 2003-4 season, as he scored his two-hundredth league goal (and he had already reached 300 career goals), Baggio announced his retirement at the end of the season. As one of the very few players to transcend club loyalties, Baggio even has a club dedicated to him, which attracts fans from all kinds of teams. As a tribute to his popularity Trapattoni picked Baggio for one last friendly match for Italy, where a sell-out crowd applauded his every touch. Apart from his genius on the pitch, Baggio was different to so many of his fellow stars of the 1980s and 1990s. A shy, reflective family-man, he shunned the high living of stars like Vieri and Totti, with their model-and-media girlfriends and expensive night-club and yachting lifestyles. Baggio was a Buddhist in a Catholic country, and rarely displayed the histrionics so common at all levels of Serie A. He knew what he wanted, but he could also express emotions that seemed to have no place in the modern, cash-dominated game. When fellow Brescia player Vittorio Mero died in a car crash in January 2002, Baggio was instrumental in getting a game called off as a result (the players had heard of the accident just before kick-off). He later dedicated goals to Mero and continued to remind fans and players of the tragedy throughout the following season. His decision to play out his final seasons with lowly Brescia allowed him the space and security that he had rarely had in the rest of his career, and he created yet another set of loyal, almost fanatical Baggio-followers. Despite his vast talent, Baggio played only 56 times for Italy, scoring 27 goals (the fourth best, behind Piola, Meazza and Riva). His international career was cruelly restricted by his outspokenness and his resistance to rigid tactics. Had he played 100 times, as he surely should have done, he would have easily beaten Riva's goalscoring record for the national team.

Who's the best striker ? INZAGHI vs TREZEGUET

Last night I asked this question on Twitter and Facebook : Who is the best striker between INZAGHI & TREZEGUET ?
And when I saw your answers it was nearly a perfect 50-50 %. So I decided to create a vote here (on the top of the sidebar-right) and to analyse the two strikers by the numbers. In green case the best ratio in each competition but it's very close.(Clic on the picture for a better quality)
Now you can vote and make your own choice 

ZIDANE’s best-ever performance for Les Bleus ?

This week-end I had a chat on twitter about this question and for me no doubt possible. ZIDANE’s best-ever performance with France is the 2006 World Cup quarter final versus Brasil. In the run-up to the Spain match, the Spanish press were practically discussing Zidane's career in the past tense. If that was some kind of ploy, it backfired badly. No doubt riled, the legendary playmaker sent Spain home with an excellent performance, and he was imperious from start to finish against the Brazilians. Right from the kick-off, a trademark spinning turn followed by a stepover set the tone for a 'Zizou' masterclass, and even Parreira joined the chorus of praise when he said: "He's one of the best players of the last ten years. He has great technique and, although he did not get behind us a lot, he set up the goal from a free-kick. He moves all the time and made life difficult for our players. He had a very fine match." Over the course of 90 minutes, Zidane not only found time for every trick in the book but proved he is still up to the physical challenge. Constructing moves and even speeding up the play, 'ZZ' turned in perhaps his best-ever performance for Les Bleus. "He was exceptional," said right-back Willy Sagnol. "He wants to give everything in his last games." The French may have been in inspired form, but there is no denying that the world champions never managed to raise their game. Not even brief late rally, when Robinho and Adriano entered the fray, could mask their glaring deficiencies. Most disappointingly, Ronaldinho was short of his delicious best, as he had been all tournament, and both Ronaldo and Kaka were kept quiet. The defence did what they could to cope with France's rampaging forwards, but ultimately the Auriverde were given a lesson by Zidane in their own supposed strengths of technique and creativity. After the game, king Pelé said : “Zidane is the master. Over the past 10 years, there’s been no-one like him, he has been the best player in the world.”

Le jour où Giancarlo ANTOGNONI a eu mal au crâne

Giancarlo Antognoni est sûrement le plus grand joueur de l'histoire de la Fiorentina. Le milieu offensif champion du monde en 1982 a évolué 15 saisons consécutives avec la Viola en Serie 1 de 1972 à 1987. Pourtant sa carrière aurait pu s'arrêter quelques mois avant la coupe du monde en Espagne un après-midi de novembre 1981. Ce jour-là, Giancarlo Antognoni a failli tout perdre sur la pelouse du Stade Artemio-Franchi. La Viola reçoit le Genoa et l'emporte 3-2 mais le fait du match c'est la sortie du gardien génois Martina qui va sécher le capitaine de Florence. Antognoni va rester de longues minutes au sol et pour cause, suite à la violence du choc, il aura une fracture du crâne et de la tempe. Alors que tout le monde craint le pire pour le pilier de la Squadra Azzura et de la Viola, dès le soir du match, le professeur Gerardo Mennona de la clinique de neurochirurgie se voudra rassurant en délcarant en conférence de presse "Ces deux fractures ne suscitent pas de préoccupations particulières. Antognoni est éveillé et parle normalement, il faudra de nouveaux contrôles pour que nous puissions faire un diagnostic sûr". Le lendemain, le milieu de terrain parlera même avec les journalistes italiens et échangera quelques mots : "Je me sens mieux, même si j'ai encore un peu mal à la tête". Sans déconner ? Le mec vient de subir une double fracture du crâne et de la temps, a mon avis il faut un peu plus que quelques effaralgants pour chasser le mal de crâne qui a du s'en suivre. En tout cas il est costaud le capitaine de la Viola car il sera de retour sur les terrains seulement trois mois après cet incident spectaculaire et qui aurait pu être beaucoup plus grave voir fatal.

Antonio Rattin’s ‘Violence of the tongue’

For many people in Argentina, Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ in 1986 was revenge on England for another World Cup quarter final between the two countries twenty years earlier where the South Americans felt they were cheated. Hosts England won the game 1-0 through a 78th minute Geoff Hurst goal, but not before Argentina had had captain Antonio Rattin scandalously sent off in the 35th minute for arguing with referee Rudolf Kreitlein. Rattin initially refused to leave the field, believing that the ref wanted England to win, and when he did finally walk the 29-year-old insulted the Queen. Three Lions manager Sir Alf Ramsey let rip at the opposition with comments that were viewed as racist in Argentina. “We have still to produce our best, and this is not possible until we meet the right sort of opponents, and that is a team that comes out to play football and not act as animals,” sniped Ramsey. Post match statistics showed that Argentina had committed only 19 fouls in the game, to England’s 33, while the referee spoke no Spanish so could not have understood what Rattin said to him. Back in South America, it was pointed out that the referee in the England game was German, while the official in Germany’s equally controversial quarter final was English. The events surrounding the refereeing draw for these two games added further suspicions. The representatives of Argentina, Uruguay, Spain and the Soviet Union were invited to a London hotel for the draw. They arrived on time, but found out that the draw had already been made without them, with the only witnesses being FIFA's English president Stanley Rous, a German representative, and a couple of Africans. This dubious situation strengthened conspiracy talk, and led to Dutch referee infamously declaring that "FIFA is controlled by three people - Sir, Stanley, Rous."

The origin of the Penalty Card :
The idea of using language-neutral coloured cards to communicate a referee's intentions originated with British football referee Ken Aston. Aston had been appointed to the FIFA Referees' Committee and was responsible for all referees at the 1966 FIFA World Cup. In the quarter finals, England met Argentina at Wembley Stadium. After the match, newspaper reports stated that referee Rudolf Kreitlein had cautioned both Bobby and Jack Charlton, as well as sending off Argentinian Antonio Rattin. The referee had not made his decision clear during the game, and England manager Alf Ramsey approached FIFA for post-match clarification. This incident started Aston thinking about ways to make a referee's decisions clearer to both players and spectators. Aston realised that a colour-coding scheme based on the same principle as used on traffic lights (yellow – stop if safe to do so, red – stop) would transcend language barriers and make it clear that a player had been cautioned or expelled. As a result, yellow cards to indicate a caution and red cards to indicate an expulsion were used for the first time in the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico. Evgeny Lovchev former Soviet Union Player became the first player to be booked on a World Cup match, in the opening game of the tournament against Mexico. The story of Lovchev and this very first penalty card here : World Cup Top 100 - N°95 : Evgeny LOVCHEV. And before all this story Antonio Rattin loved his England's trip :

1975-2015 : 40 ans de France - Portugal en Panini

En ce 4 septembre 2015 la France affronte le Portugal pour un classique du football européen. Les tricolores restent sur une série incroyable de 8 succès de rang et n'ont plus connu la défaite face aux lusitaniens depuis 40 ans. Retour sur l'ensemble des confrontations entre les deux nations entre 1975 et 2015.

26 avril 1975 Stade de Colombes : France 0-2 Portugal



L'histoire du match : Ce match marque le retour de l'équipe de France à Colombes après l'inauguration du nouveau Parc des Princes trois ans plus tôt. Ce match des bleus est triste à mourir et les tricolores vont s'incliner sur deux erreurs grossières de la défense française. Une défense qui affichait pur une des dernières fois sa fameuse "garde noire" composé de Marius Trésor et Jean-Pierre Adams. Même si la charnière n'est pas forcément responsable du naufrage français en cette belle journée d'avril 1975 (quoique pas exempt de tout reproche sur le premier but), elle ne survivra pas à l'échec dans les éliminatoires de l'Euro 1976 et l'arrivée du nouveau sélectionneur Michel Hidalgo mettra fin à la collaboration entre les deux défenseurs centraux.

8 Mars 1978 Parc des Princes : France 2-0 Portugal



L'histoire du match : Si avec un but et une passe décisive, Bruno BARONCHELLI a été l'homme de ce match, il le doit à un sacré concours de circonstances. Homme de la dernière minute, il doit remplacer Bernard Lacombe et Dominique Rocheteau qui déclarent forfait la veille et surtout Baronchelli fût le héros de la soirée à la grâce d'un avion raté ! En effet il aurait du être ce jour là à Lisbonne avec l'équipe de France A' pour affronter le Portugal mais son infortune fera qu'Hidalgo le convoque à la dernière minute et l'attaquant nantais fera sûrement son meilleur match avec l'Equipe de France.

L'histoire du match bis: Lacombe et Rocheteau ne furent pas les seuls absents de la dernière minute. Michel PLATINI figure lui aussi dans la liste des forfaits de dernière minute, la faute à son ami Patrick Battison qui ne l'a pas loupé lors du dernière entrainement :
J'étais déjà revenu sur cette histoire dans le sujet : Platini vs Battiston : le superchoc.

16 Février 1983 Guimarães : Portugal 0-3 France



L'histoire du match : Depuis qu'il est arrivé en Italie, durant l'été 1982, Platini n'est pas devenu Platinissimo du jour au lendemain mais son explosion va arriver en début d'année 1983. Et son match avec les bleus va grandement l'aider pour la confiance et l'imposer comme le meilleur n°10 d'Europe de l'époque. La France remporte un joli succès d'estime au Portugal, une victoire nette 3-0 avec 3 passes décisives de son meneur de jeu.

23 Juin 1984 Stade Vélodrome (Marseille - Euro 84) : France 3-2 Portugal



L'histoire du match : Là aussi malgré les doublés de Domergue et Jordao c'est le "Roi PLATINI" qui sera à l'honneur au terme de la dernière seconde des prolongations de cette demi-fianle du championnat d'Europe dans un Vélodrome en ébullition. C'est le roi lui-même qui revient sur ce but historique : « Ce but, je crois bien que c'est le plus important de toute ma carrière. Les portugais, superbes, avaient menés et Domergue avait égalisé à quelques minutes de la fin des prolongations. On se revoyait déjà à Séville. Sauf Jeannot, qui y croyait encore. Quand je l'ai vu déborder comme un fou à une minute de la fin, je me suis dit que c'était le moment où jamais d'y aller. J'ai vu arriver le centre de Jeannot, j'ai eu le temps de le contrôler et j'ai frappé de toutes mes forces, enfin, celles qui me restaient, car comme les autres, j'étais cuit ! Je crois que les filets su Stade Vélodrome en tremblent encore. Quel bonheur ! Nous étions en final sans avoir besoin de ces coups de pied au but ! ».

24 Janvier 1996 Parc des Princes : France 3-2 Portugal  


L'histoire du match : Avant l'Euro 1996, ce match va confirmer que les bleus sont dépendants dans le jeu de l'efficacité du duo Zidane-Djorkaeff. Le France Football du 30 janvier 1996 titrait : "Tout le pouvoir à Zidane et Djorkaeff". Victorieuse dans la difficulté du Portugal, l'équipe de France attaquait bien sa préparation à l'Euro. Et le tandem Zidane-Djorkaeff a illuminé le jeu français. Le pourvoir appartient plus que jamais à cette génération et ses deux leaders d'attauqe, qui ne s'est pas laissé damer le pion par un adversaire de grande classe
L'histoire du match bis : C'est aussi au cours de ce France Portugale que Claude Lelouch, quelques jours seulement après avoir reçu un Golden Globe pour le meilleur film étranger avec Les Misérables, prend quelques prises pour son nouveau film : Hommes-Femmes Mode d'emploi avec un certain Bernard Tapie


22 Janvier 1997 Braga : Portugal 0-2 France  


L'histoire du match : Ce match marque l'explosion du néo-bordelais Ibrahim BA ainsi que l'apogée de sa carrière. Arrivé l'été précédent à Bordeaux en provenance du Havre, le milieu de terrain explose et réalise une première partie de saison époustouflante. Il honore sa première sélection au cours de ce déplacement au Portugal et non seulement ce jour-là il rentrera dans le club fermé des buteurs lors de leurs premières sélections mais "Ibou" sera aussi élu homme du match.

28 Juin 2000 Bruxelles (Euro 2000) : Portugal 1-2 France  


L'histoire du match : 16 ans après le Portugal et la France se retrouve à nouveau en demi-finale du championnat d'Europe et une fois encore les acteurs ne vont pas ménager l'angoisse et le stress chez les supporters des deux équipes. Encore une fois le match ira en prolongations et la France l'emportera sur un but en or de son maître à jouer Zidane, sur Penalty. Un penalty suite à une main d'Abel Xavier sur la ligne de but qui fera beaucoup d'histoires. Les portugais rumineront cette décision arbitrale pendant des années et Abel Xavier lui ira jusqu'à bousculer l'arbitre dans les couloirs menant au vestiaire à la fin du match et écopera de... 8 mois de suspension.

25 Avril 2001 Stade de France : France 4-0 Portugal  


L'histoire du match : Avec trois buts inscrits, Youri DJORKAEFF est le meilleur buteur des France-Portugal au cours de ces quarante dernières années

5 Juillet 2006 Munich (Coupe du Monde 2006) :  Portugal  0-1 France


L'histoire du match : Pour la troisième fois en un peu plus de 20 ans, le Portugal et la France se rencontrent lors d'une demi-finale d'une compétition majeur. Encore une fois c'est la France qui passera, de nouveau sur un pénalty de Zidane. Zizou qui est jusque là le héros de cette coupe du monde et qui aura droit le lendemain à être en couverture du New York Times avec cette question : "Coolest man on earth ?" avec en photo son penalty face à Ricardo. Malheureusement il répondra à cette question par la négative quatre jours après, quand un certain Materazzi lui demandera des nouvelles de sa sœur.

11 Octobre 2014 Stade de France :  France 2-1 Portugal
