It is one of football’s great injustices that a missed penalty in the 1994 World Cup final will always be remembered as the iconic moment of Baggio’s career. It was he who had dragged Italy to the final in 1994, scoring five goals and rescuing them from a late deficit against Nigeria in the last 16 tie. The Divine Ponytail would later become the only Italian ever to score in three World Cups, but will never be allowed to forget that one lone spot-kick scooped towards the heavenss.
