In this post-Oscars week, here are the nominated photographs . We start with Ronaldo , the Brazilian obviously, from 1999, in the middle of celebrating a goal with Inter . We continue with his almost namesake: Ronaldinho. During his most memorable match with Paris SG: the demo (3-0) against OM at the Vélodrome in 2003 . Then, we offer you a classic with “El Pibe de Oro”, Diego Armando Maradona, who suffered a nasty tackle during “his” 1986 World Cup final against West Germany. And finally, an unusual photo during the 1982 World Cup match in Spain with Paul Mariner behind a Spanish policeman during the match between France and England in Bilbao.

This selection can be found now on our .

Just by seeing this celebration again, arms outstretched, we immediately remember all these moments of genius that Ronaldo Luiz Nazario Da Lima, Ronaldo, R9, Gronaldo was able to offer us. It was in 97, after PSV and Barça, that the man many consider to be the best striker in the history of this sport joined Inter Milan and the Italian championship, renowned as the toughest in the world. Result ? After just one season, he got a new nickname “O Fenomeno”. And even if the Nerrazuri club will mark the start of injuries for this raw talent, it will continue to offer us crazy football moments, with Real Madrid, AC Milan or the Seleçao . So, here for you, a photo that exudes talent and genius during this celebration of his goal against Piacenza in 1999, his first that season.

“The great players are always there in the big matches” . For the fine football connoisseurs that you are, there is no doubt that Ronaldinho is one of the first to come to mind. Indeed, the Brazilian number 10 has always been able to shine in prestigious matches, from a very young age. For his arrival in Europe at PSG, Ronaldo Assis De Moreira sets the tone by making an impression during the French “classics” against Olympique de Marseille. And particularly during this 2002-2003 season. In the first leg, “Ronnie” was already there with his double. But he saved his best for the return match at the Vélodrome . On March 9, 2003 and despite a hostile atmosphere, Ronnie will make this second half a recital. An interception of a pass from Franck Leboeuf , a crazy run across the entire Marseille half of the field and a little dive from the right on Runje. 2 to 0 for Paris in the 55th minute. But the magician always wants more. At the end of the match, he leaves in a new breakthrough from his camp, physically resists Brahim Hemdani, eliminates Runje , hooks Hemdani who, 19 years later, must still try to find his balance. He concludes with a very soft shot, so soft that Jérôme Leroy has time to push the ball into the back of the net. Final score, 3-0 . The Vélodrome made no mistake and even applauded him that day.

Rarely has a player given this impression of carrying his national team during a World Cup . Diego Armando Maradona was always predestined to accomplish great things. After the failure of his first World Cup in Spain, Diego arrived in Mexico in 86 to fulfill his destiny. The Albiceleste managed to get out of the group stages without too much difficulty, which served as a warm-up for the Argentine number 10 with just one small goal against the Italians . Maradona wakes up for the knockout phase , culminating in this unforgettable performance in the quarter-final against the English . Two goals : one from the hand and the other considered to be the most beautiful goal in history. Another double in the half against the Belgians, then West Germany presents itself in the final. After a constant fight, as evidenced by this shot of Diego in the air after a stamp with Harald Schumacher + defender Forster , and a match with a crazy scenario with Argentinian domination (2-0 in the 56th minute) and a return of the Germans (2-2 in the 81st), Burruchaga scores the third goal at the end of the match (84th) on a brilliant assist from number 10. When we told you that it was “his” World Cup…

We go back four years for this last photo. The 1982 World Cup organized in Spain is undoubtedly, for us French, one of the most significant. The heat, Italy, Seville, the night, Schumacher . And even if this semi final undoubtedly remains one of the most painful moments in our sporting history, this World marks the beginning of a new era for tricolor football . However, nothing suggested such a journey for our Blues , especially after the first match against England . In this June 17, 1982 , The french team will undergo a correction with an opening of the score of Robson from the first minute of play. Despite everything, we can already sense a warrior's state of mind with the equalization of Soler . But the Three Lions end up finding the flaw, once again thanks to Robson (67th) and with a final goal of Paul Mariner (83rd) . Precisely, we find our scorer in this unexpected photo of a Spanish police officer who tries to find the ball in the hot stands of San Mames so that the former Arsenal striker can take his corner . Lots of anecdotes this World Cup.
