Dino Zoff

 

Dino Zoff was 36 years old at the period of the 1978 World Cup. A very experienced goalkeeper who always looked good when grabbing the ball. Zoff made his first appearance for Italy no less than ten years prior the 78 finals, only losing his place in 1970 following a temporary loss of form at the period of his transfer to Juventus. Zoff went a record 1,142 minutes for Italy without allowing in a goal between 1972 to 1974. Zoff displayed almost the same level of motivation as England’s Gordon Banks when it came to training and preparing; He was a world cup winner in 1982 and is one of the finest gaolkeepers the game has ever seen.
