The 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia™ is drawing ever nearer – with just **8 **days to go! Between now and the start of the World Cup, we will take a closer look at a different statistic from the history of the tournament each day.
8 – Many FIFA World Cup™ legends have worn the No8 shirt. Think back to Socrates in 1982, Dennis Bergkamp in 1998 or Lothar Matthaus, who alternated between wearing 8 and 10 during his glittering international career for Germany.
There have also been spectacular goals from other impressive No8s down the years, from Scotland’s Kenny Dalglish in 1978 to Torsten Frings of Germany and Brazil’s Kaka in 2006.
Sit back and enjoy some of the best!
