“I want to beat England because I want to win every game I play. Not because we went to war in 1982 or because we played against each other in 1998. I can't take on some kind of revenge or change history.”

Gabriel Batistuta


When I was playing football I never enjoyed it that much, I was never happy... if I scored two goals, I wanted a third, I always wanted more. Now it's all over I can look back with satisfaction, but I never felt that way when I was playing.
