Paul Caniggia, that's the name of the living legend in soccer.
Born on January 9th, 1967 in a small town
called Henderson, Argentina,
Caniggia looks more like a hard-living rock star than a world-class
athlete, with his stringy blond
hair and taste for cigarettes. He's 34 now, but he still has
what forwards covet most: the sheer, raw speed to burn past
defenders toward the goal.
No one will ever forget his single
Maradona's great passing through 3 Brazilian defenders in World Cup 1990
Italy when Argentina played
in 2nd round, which made Brazil thrown away from the competition.
And also his goal on semi final against Italy made the host
cried out loud and brought Argentina to the final. His
biggest chance to perform and did something for his country
in WC 1990 final was stolen by a damn referee who gave him
yellow card for doing absolutely nothing wrong in semi
final. Someday you have to pay for that, referee!
He's shining like the most beautiful star when he played in
Atalanta and AS Roma, but then got into some troubles,
people accused him for using drugs. This made
him did a come back to his homeland thanks to the
Then his star's shining again in Dundee, which made Rangers,
Champions League participant interested and signed this
long-blond-haired-cute-smile for next season. Let's
all see his strike!
Some of you younger Argentine soccer fans might blur about
this phenomenal guy, so I recommend you to do yourself a favor
and find some videos from his performances. I have
some and I'll try to upload them next time. This man
has changed my life forever and I thank him for that.
He's the love of my life, and no one could ever take that
