Davids came to mind first, however when you look at denco's last sentence it would not make sense because Edgar is not in "his country."

how could he be a hero in torino..??
On the last day of season 01/02, Inter looked to have the scudetto in their grasp, with Juventus and Roma 2 and 3 points behind respectively. However, they managed to lose 4-2 to Lazio, with Poborsky scoring 2 equalisers before Simeone and Inzaghi brought tears to Ronaldo's eyes. We beat Udinese to pip Inter to the scudetto after trailing for the whole season. Roma also beat Torino, so if we falied to beat Udinese, they would have won the title :eek:

Well the only place I could follow it was on livescore, and I didn't really have high hopes at the start of the matches, but by the end of it I was jumping up and down and singing Poborsky's praises

Right. I think the answer is Poborsky. While we're waiting for Denco to confirm, here's another to keep you busy :

Faithfulness has not been my forte : both Milanese clubs have benefited from my services, as have their Turinese counterparts.
Although my last name appeals to peace of mind, you shouldn’t trust my cute head : it used to make the opposition restless.
These days I advise kids not to smoke, but please don't mention Argentina to me.
Who am I ?
