Batistuta. He's too cool not to vote for.
Big Den currently leads Batigol by 10-4 & Peru's finest holds an 8-2 advantage over the scourge of Eire. Both ties remain open.
I won't be able to get online for a couple of days so will put up next two days' worth of battles; will all remain open until I'm next on. 11 & 14 corkers, IMHO.

World Cups: 3 (1978, 1982, 1986*)
World Cup Apperances: 14
World Cup Goals: 9
Best Performance: Winner in 1982

World Cups: 1 (2006)
Best: Second Round in 2006.
Noteable for: Anchoring the Dutch in 2006 in an impressively combative manner.
Jurgen Klinsmann (West Germany/Germany)
World Cups: 3 (1990, 1994, 1998)
Best: Winner in 1990

Johan Neeskens (The Netherlands)
World Cups: 2 (1974, 1978)
Best: Runner-Up in 1974 & 1978.
Noteable for: An amazing technique and giving the Dutch a short lived lead in the 74 final.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
Platini, Escobar, Banks and, reluctantly, Klinsmann.
