About

A magical night in Rome.

“And, what’s he given? He’s given a penalty! He’s. Given. A. Penalty!”

Those are the famous words German television commentator Gerd Rubenbauer used to describe the events in the 85th minute of the 1990 FIFA World Cup™ Final, sparking cries of delight in living rooms across the country. Rudi Voller had been felled in the box and Mexican referee Edgardo Codesal Mendez pointed straight to the spot, despite the furious protests of the Argentinian players.
