It was a bad clearing a 22 June 1994, Rose Bowl in Los Angeles, to be exact, which brought fatal only ten days later. And it is that he 2 July of that year he was assassinated in his own country. Nothing had served his words relativizing the error and noting that "life does not end here". Nothing is further from reality.
2- Jonathan Woodgate: In the season 2004-05 Real Madrid was reinforced with a central defense of guarantees from the British Isles. Or so at least it seemed. His first season could not get worse: No party disputed as a result of incessant injuries. It was expected, well, to September 2005 to debut at San Mamés. Nor the worst of his enemies could have designed a premiere as well: own goal and expulsion. Woodgate not take long to leave the White orbit.
3- Dauphin Geli: play a European final and lose it must be terrible. Moreover if it has done in overtime. But worse than all, It should be fit goal with three minutes to end the match.

Con 2-1 on the scoreboard thing going according to script. Until Zubizarreta decided to change the course of the film and convert a center in an own goal. Di Stefano said that every doorman asked him to at least not tuck which went out. In June 1998, Andoni Zubizarreta he ignored.
