the spot against Uruguay in extra time of their quarter-final on

bar in the quarter-final shootout with Brazil in 1986 - but his
team won 4-3.

in the second half of the same match in 1986.
 Roberto Baggio (Italy) - Baggio skied the final spot kick in
the 1994 World Cup final against Brazil over the bar. Brazil won
the shootout 3-2.
