World Cup Moments: Baggio’s biggest miss


When you think of how nervous players must be when they step up to take their shot at a penalty shootout it can’t be anything compared to a penalty shootout at a football world cup final. So let’s rewind to the 1994 World Cup when Italy were playing Brazil, the final game went down to the wire with the winner being decided by penalty shootout.

Italy’s hopes all lie with Robberto Baggio who needs to tie the penalty score. The stadium is silent and Baggio sends the ball well above the cross bar handing the trophy to Brazil for their fourth World Cup Victory.
