My favorite game: Tassotti’s nudge against Luis Enrique in the Spain-Italy match of the 1994 World Cup in the USA

The photo of Luis Enrique bleeding from the nose on July 9, 1994 at the World Cup in the USA is the image of how Spain fell to Italy that has remained in the retina of those who witnessed it. “It was the first great disappointment of the Spanish team in a World Cup,” says the sports journalist for SER Jorge Escorial. The current coach of the Spanish team for the World Cup, Luis Enrique, received an elbow from the Italian player Mauro Tassotti that broke his nasal septum. “Tassotti was sanctioned and could not play in the rest of the World Cup, but the referee did not call a penalty,” recalls Joaquin Maroto, assistant director of AS. Spain had reached the quarterfinals in that World Cup and felt that nudge was much more unfair, since the result of the match was Italy 2 Spain 1. Miguel Martin Talavera, SER narrator: “If they had given it to me At home it would have hurt less.”
