Italy 3-1 West Germany, World Cup Final 1982
Yahoo News - 3 months
Games don't any bigger than World Cup finals. Should you ever be lucky enough to play in one, you need to take your chance. After a cagey first-half, Italy pulled away with goals from Paolo Rossi, Marco Tardelli and Alessandro Altobelli, with Paul Breitner's late goal proving to be little more than a consolation for Germany. The game is probably most fondly remembered for Tardelli's incredibly passionate goal celebration, while goalkeeper and captain Dino Zoff became the oldest player to win the World Cup.

Euro 2012: Republic of Ireland not ‘Cinderella’ of Group C - Tardelli
Yorkshire Evening Post - over 4 years
Marco Tardelli does not consider the Republic of Ireland to be the “Cinderella” of Euro 2012 Group C. Ireland were left at the foot of the table on Sunday night after their 3-1 defeat in Croatia, which came in the wake of the 1-1 draw between Spain and Italy. They will remain there if they do not come away from their intensely difficult showdown with world and European champions Spain in Gdansk on Thursday night with something to show for their efforts, and know defeat would prove fatal. However, assistant manager Tardelli insists they will run out against Vicente del Bosque’s all-conquering superstars with no inferiority complex hampering their efforts. Asked if there is more or less pressure on the Republic, the Italian said: “That’s a good question because you might think we are the Cinderella of the group, but no, we are not the Cinderella. “The players want to do something very important for the country. We believe. “We will go out on to the pitch to win the match. In footba ...

Space on the plane: Trap’s Euro 2012 defensive options
The Journal - almost 5 years
AFTER RUNNING THE rule over Ireland’s goalkeeping options yesterday, today we turn our attention to the back four and their likely deputies in the Euro 2012 squad. Giovanni Trapattoni has already hinted that he is likely to settle on seven defenders who can cover a variety of roles rather than eight positional specialists, giving him room to tinker in midfield and attack. Some of the names pick themselves but beyond that, there’s plenty of scope for debate. So who’s going to Poland and who’s staying at home? Richard Dunne Now that he has shaken the shoulder injury which sidelined him for 10 anxious weeks, Richard Dunne will be the first name on most people’s squad lists. The Honey Monster was at the heart of Ireland’s stingy defence throughout qualification and missed only two games — the wins in Macedonia and in Andorra — while his bloodstained heroism against Russia in Moscow will go down as one of the all-time great international performances. Before his Premier League comeba ...
