Sevilla 82 - Die Geschichte eines Jahrhundertspiels
The match of the century with the first penalty shootout in World Cup history is what Paul Breitner, the 1974 World Champion, calls a "high point in German soccer history". At the same time, however, it was also a low point: When Patrick Battiston, who had only just been substituted, ran toward Toni Schumacher's goal, Schumacher raced out of the goal but was too late and, from a full sprint, jumped into Battiston with his hip. He hit him full force in the head and Battiston fell to the ground unconscious. The play changed Schumacher's career and life forever. The image of the ugly German took on a new face in France and Toni Schumacher was severely insulted. And yet he was also the hero of that night in Seville: in the penalty shootout he saved twice - Germany was in the final.
