Enzo scifo..

Vincenzo "Enzo" Scifo

Here is one of the player that i respect the most...Enzo Scifo...

Vincenzo "Enzo" Scifo (born February 19, 1966) is a Belgian football midfielder. Scifo was proved himself an highly promising talent in youth football. Originally Italian born by Italian parents, Vincenzo Scifo was nicknamed the 'Little Pele' after scoring 432 goals in only four seasons as a junior.

He joined the Belgium side La Louviere aged 14 but soon transferred to R.S.C. Anderlecht, first team debut in 1983.

He decided to play internationally for Belgium in 1984, International debut in 1984 against Yugoslavia. He moved to Inter Milan in 1987 but did very poorly, soon moving to Girondins Bordeaux in 1988 where he again disappointed.

His career was revived by a successful move to AJ Auxerre in 1989, which led to a return to Italy with A.C. Torino in 1991. He then moved to AS Monaco (1993) before ending his career with his first club, Anderlecht (1997).

He retired in 2000 after being diagnosed with chronic arthritis. He tried his hand at coaching with Charleroi SC, joining them for the 2000-01 season. Indifferent results led to his resignation in June 2002.


In 1986, Belgium surprised many by reaching the semifinals of the World Cup in Mexico, and Scifo contributed a great deal to their success. He played in all the seven games and scored two goals. Anderlecht could not stop him from taking the big step to the Serie A in 1987.

By the time the 1990 World Cup started in Italy, many expected Belgium to emulate their achivements of four years earlier. Scifo scored a magnificent goal against Uruguay in the first round, but England scored a last minute winner in extra-time of the second round which meant Belgium were eliminated much sooner than they had hoped for.
