BACK OF THE NET!!!!!!!!!!!!

That's the chap - the 14 year-old son of a stadium employee in Rome where Spain and Turkey couldn't be separated after tying their two-team WC qualification group, Spain winning 4-1 in Madrid and Turkey winning the return 1-0 in Istanbul - no aggregate score applying in those days. So a play-off was held in Rome three days after the Istanbul match and it finished 2-2 after extra-time. The lad was blindfolded and drew Turkey's straw from the lot.
