They are dominating Portugal from the beginning. Team captain Cristiano Injured at the beginning of the match. Huge let of for Portugal. They manage to defend until the Eder came on, their saviour. A few min after ending the match he sends a powerful shot inside the french net. Which help Portugal to win the euro.

In Lisbon, they chanted the name, Eder. Football fans have all heard of his name. what happens next? Eder signs for a club in Russia but we have not heard his name again. He never scores a goal as significant as he scores in the euro final.

Divock Origi

Did you remember the Origi magnificent goal to knock Barcelona out of UCL? The striker scored one of the important goals for the REDS. His brace against Barcelona made him an unlikely hero. Even Barcelona is not prepared for his performance. That night Roberto Firmino and Mohamed Salah were absent so Origi start alongside Sadio Mane. This choice by Kloop is the best choice of the year.

But sadly he never shines since this iconic game. He saved the REDS in a number of situations.

Sergei Semak

There are only 2 groups of people who can tell you about Sergei Semak. Russian because he is very famous in his country and also PSG fans. That’s for 2 reasons in particular.

The first is on  December 7th, 2004 Sergei Semak single-handedly destroyed PSG. He scored a historic hat-trick against them. Sergei Semak eliminated PSG. A true execution because they did not qualify in the UCL for the 8 years. which means it was a lasting memory.

That’s not all PSG signed him following season but he never as good when he scored a hattrick against them. That proves it’s never wise to try something with someone who broke your heart.
