With all this presumably not fresh news to most World Soccer fans or regular Blog readers thought I take advantage & post up a Historic Spanish Football National Team starting 11 picture from 1983. A team that made themselves a space in the History of Spanish Football.
were the starting team that defeated Malta 12 - 1 the 21st of December 1983 ( Benito Villamarin Stadium, Seville SPAIN) in the last Group 7 qualifier for the 1984 European Nations Finals. Spain before this match was second to the Netherlands in the Group & needed to win by at least 11 goals to qualify. The match & result is history.
The goalscorers for Spain were:
47' Poli Rincón
57' Poli Rincón
62' Antonio Maceda
63' Antonio Maceda
64' Poli Rincón
78' Poli Rincón
80' Manu Sarabia
84' Juan Señor
The only goalscorer for Malta was Michael Digiorgio 24th min.
