Description

Calcio's Greatest Forwards devotes a chapter to each of the 21 best strikers to have graced L'Italia since 1929. It delves deep into the back stories of the finest attackers in Serie A history; from Gigi Riva's historic Scudetto with Cagliari; to Roberto Boninsegna and an infamous incident involving a Coca-Cola can; to the modern era, and the Divine Ponytail Roberto Baggio. George Rinaldi explores the fine careers of these footballers and it is one place where Silvio Piola doesn't come first.
