Ten iconic Italy-France moments
2. Rossi spoils Lacombe's golden moment - 1978
When Bernard Lacombe put France ahead just 37 seconds into their 1978 World Cup group clash with Italy, it earned the striker a gold watch by way of recognition. However, his side - who many believed would go on to unparalleled success for their nation - were eventually undone by goals from a young Paolo Rossi and Renato Zaccarelli. The two countries would both earn glory within six years, with Italy’s 1982 world title followed by France’s Euro '84 triumph.
