Not forgetting Harold Schumacher, the pantomime villain ...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGq7VcaH ... re=related

A great goalkeeper but guilty of an absolute assault on Patrick Battiston in the 1982 WC, which resulted in Batiston being stretchered off, no penalty not even a yellow card for Schumacher


Battiston is particularly remembered for the 1982 FIFA World Cup semi final, when France faced West Germany. He came off the bench in the second half, and after ten minutes of play, following a through ball by Platini, Battiston was clear through the German defence racing towards goal. The German goalkeeper, Harald Schumacher, raced towards Battiston as the Frenchman took the shot, missing the goal. Schumacher leapt into the air, twisting his body and colliding with Battiston. In the process Schumacher's hip hit the Frenchman's face. Battiston, clattered, fell to the ground unconscious, with damaged vertebrae and teeth knocked out, later slipping into a coma. Emergency medics had to administer oxygen on the pitch.[1] Michel Platini later said that he thought that Battiston was dead, because "he had no pulse and looked pale".[2]

The Dutch referee did not give a foul, let alone send Schumacher off. Schumacher then proceeded to take the goal-kick and play resumed. After winning the game, the goalkeeper caused more controversy when he was told that Battiston had lost three teeth, and replied: "If that's all that's wrong with him, I'll pay him the crowns."

Schumacher later apologised in person to Battiston, and the apology was accepted by Battiston. In his autobiography, Anpfiff, published a couple of years later, Schumacher said the reason he did not go over to check on Battiston's condition was because a number of French players were standing around Battiston and making threatening gestures in his direction.

Now, now.

We shan't discuss the number of Argentinians playing in the Paraguay team or Australians playing cricket for Ireland, or indeed South Africans playing for England.
