Once is not customary, we start with a classic. Or rather THE classic. PSG-OM. But the old way. While the Marseillais recently ended 10 years without a victory at the Parc des Princes, this is the round of 16 of the 1991 French Cup. More precisely the toss between the two captains: Safet Susic and Jean-Pierre Papin . In the little game of the battle of looks, it is the Phocaean who will emerge victorious. That day, Marseille won 2-0. With a goal from JPP.

If I had asked for €100 per interview to talk about my penalty in the Euro 1976 final, I would have become a millionaire. » If more than 40 years after scoring his decisive shot on goal on a dead leaf left in the middle of the cage during the Euro 1976 final in favor of Czechoslovakia against Germany (2-2, 5 tab 3 ) , Panenka is not full of aces, it is true that his gesture of genius - which had offered a historic continental coronation to his selection - still cannibalizes all the attention around his name.

The fruit of a nocturnal inspiration, one evening, in his bed, which he refined with his club. “ It’s a move that I had worked on for a long time in training. I started two years before this European Championship, on average between two and three times a week. I judged that the moment was right, I was the fifth shooter and, just before me, Uli Hoeness had missed his penalty. We had a match point. I didn't hesitate for a single second. » And it fits in this cliché.

We continue with a memorable day, a certain July 12, 1998 . Needless to say, that day, Aimé Jacquet's France played its first World Cup final against Brazil at the Stade de France. A match marked by a Z which means… Zidane, here in the duel with Brazilian captain Dunga. A match forever engraved on our jersey by a first star. Since then accompanied by a little sister.

No, this is not a rugby touch. In addition to the only English World Cup title, the 1966 World Cup organized across the Channel is famous for having seen North Korea reach the quarter-finals for its first participation . Defeated by Eusebio's Portugal 5 goals to 3 after leading 3 goals to 0, the Chollimas – named after this winged horse from Siberian mythology – owe their presence at this stage to a real feat. One of the biggest shocks in the history of the World Cup: their victory in the group stage against the tournament favorite, Italy, on a goal from their striker Pak Doo Ik (1-0), printer in the civilian . This print, taken from this meeting at Ayresome Park in Middlesbrough, shows the bitter battle fought that day by this group of strangers to somehow keep the cage of their goalkeeper Li Chan-Myung inviolate against the legendary duo of Mazzola-Rivera attackers .

Before Saint-Etienne and Juve, Michel Platini studied at AS Nancy Lorraine, which he joined at 17 , after two failed trials at FC Metz. The future Ballon d'Or played there for 7 years, from 1972 to 1979. That day, January 15, 1978, the young footballer, only 22 years old, entered the pitch at the Stade de Reims to take part in a First Division match. . His beautiful jersey signed Le Coq Sportif will not be enough to impress his opponents: ASNL leaves Auguste-Delaune with four goals in the buffet. Defeat 4-1.

Hope you find your happiness ! And whether this is the case or not, don't hesitate to follow us directly on Instagram where we highlight as often as possible a beautiful photo from the immense collection of our partner: the Icon Sport photographic agency .
