Next wednesday 28th of April at 21 CET Italy playes a friendly against Spain and I guess most of you know that "Il Divin Codino" Roberto Baggio will play in gli azzurri. I'm pretty sure he starts the match and plays about an hour. It will be his farewell match in Italy shirt and after that match he has only 3 matches to play for Brescia, then the living legend will hang up his boots.
It will be a sad day for football when a genius like Roby ends his career, he will never be forgotten and always remembered as the most popular Italian footballer of his time(which he still is). Just find some Italian and ask something about Baggio, everybody loves him. I know I will probably drop a tear if he scores for Italy or when he will be subbed. I hope I'll be able to see his last match in Brescia, he really is still a champion and in the age of 37 he is a world class player. He has shown that in almost every match he has played this season.
He has been my personal hero since 1990 World Cup and he's been the biggest reason I've learned to love football and especially Italian football. Back then my Inter fanatism was only in the beginning. I consider Roby as the best footballer ever (I know most people disagree with me...)
Forza Roby Baggio!!
