    Batistuta. He's too cool not to vote for.

    Cubillas.

    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.

    Battle Eleven



    Paolo Rossi (Italy)
    World Cups: 3 (1978, 1982, 1986*)
    World Cup Apperances: 14
    World Cup Goals: 9
    Best Performance: Winner in 1982
    Noteable for: Returning (early) from a ban for match fixing to inspire Italy to the 82 crown with six goal, including a hat-trick versus Brazil.
    *unused squad member


    v



    Michel Platini (France)
    World Cups: 3 (1978, 1982, 1986)
    Apps: 13
    Goals: 5
    Best: Semi-Finalist in 1982 & 1986
    Noteable for: Twice leading France to semi-final defeats to West Germany.


    Battle Twelve



    Carlos Valderrama (Colombia)
    World Cups: 3 (1990, 1994, 1998)
    Apps: 10
    Goals: 1
    Best: Second Round in 1990
    Noteable for: The haircut and never quite living up to pre-tournament hype.


    V



    Andres Escobar (Colombia)
    World Cups: 2 (1990, 1994)
    Apps: 7
    Goals: 0
    Best: Second Round in 1990.
    Noteable for: An own goal against The US with tragic consequences.


    Battle Thirteen



    Gordon Banks (England)
    World Cups: 2 (1966, 1970)
    Apps: 9
    Clean Sheets: 6
    Best: Winner in 1966
    Noteable for: Being the last line of defence in 1966 and arguably the greatest save ever.


    V



    Mark Van Bommel (The Netherlands)
    World Cups: 1 (2006)
    Apps: 3
    Goals: 0
    Best: Second Round in 2006.
    Noteable for: Anchoring the Dutch in 2006 in an impressively combative manner.


    Battle Fourteen



    Jurgen Klinsmann (West Germany/Germany)
    World Cups: 3 (1990, 1994, 1998)
    Apps: 17
    Goals: 11
    Best: Winner in 1990
    Noteable for: The goals that took Germany all the way in 1990 and a tendency to go to ground a wee bit easily.


    V



    Johan Neeskens (The Netherlands)
    World Cups: 2 (1974, 1978)
    Apps: 12
    Goals: 5
    Best: Runner-Up in 1974 & 1978.
    Noteable for: An amazing technique and giving the Dutch a short lived lead in the 74 final.

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Apart from voting for van Bommel, yes.

    Seriously, if Banks goes out here one might begin to develop a persecution complex.

    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
