Football Shootball Hai Rabba...!!!!




Q. X(top) and Y(below), both share one of the most distinguished feats in World Cup football history individually. ID both and give the feat. (Hints will prompt people to use google)

Ans. Going by the rooster on his shirt, X(top) will be Just Fontaine and Y(below) is Alcides Ghiggia. They are the only people to have scored in every match of a World Cup they played in. Fontaine in 1958 for France and Ghiggia in 1950 for Uruguay.

Excellent ID crack by John Rebus and Shuleo.

Fontaine and Ghiggia, the only two players so far who have scored in every single match their respective teams played in a world cup.

Just Fontaine (France): 1958 Sweden
Alcides Ghiggia (Uruguay): 1950 Brazil
