Widely considered as one of the worst tackles of the history of football, Battiston of France had only been on the pitch for 5 minutes when goalkeeper Harald Schumacher, without trying to hit the ball, smashed him in the face with his forearm, Battiston was knocked down unconscious. A French newspaper poll asked who was the least popular man in France, Hitler came in second place after Schumacher . Asked what happened Battiston said the only thing he recalls was that he crashed with a very BIG object . The question is what was the referee decision?

    here r the answers...



    1. How many games did Brazil lose when both Pele and Garrincha
    were playing together?

    Answer - Brazil never lost with Garrincha and Pele playing together.
    Here are some information about Garrincha I once posted in mahjoob.


    2. FIFA introduced the Yashin Award in World Cup 1994 in memory of Lev Yashin the greatest Goalkeeper to ever play the game, who was the winner of the first award and from which country?

    Answer - Michel Preud'homme (Belgium).


    3. Shooting 36-of-63 from the field and a remarkable 28-of-32 from the foul line this player scored 100 points in this NBA game who was that player.
    [ i]
    Answer – Of course that was Wilt Chamberlain in the game between Chamberlain's Philadelphia Warriors Vs New York Knicks, here are some more information about that crazy game.


    4. In the 1988 Seoul Olympics, Carl Lewis run 100m in 9.92 and earned the gold medal. Fine - except the American legend was more than two meters behind Canadian winner Ben Johnson, who ran a barely-conceivable 9.79. Suspicions abounded and after Johnson was found to be using anabolic steroids, his world record and gold medal were stripped and awarded to Lewis.
    The question is was anybody able to break Ben’s record??? If yes then whom?

    Answer – Yes it was broken by Tim Montgomery when he recorded an astonishing run of 9.78 seconds to win the Grand Prix final in Paris. He was the only one to break Ben Johnson’s record.


    5. In Football world cup the third place match was played in all but one tournament, in which tournament and who were the 2 teams that should have played it.

    Answer – In 1930 there were no games played to define the third place winner, therefore USA and Yugoslavia shared the third place.



    Now try the second one.
