Goals: 1-0 A long ball from deep in the Italian half from Maldini sees Roberto Baggio flick it into the path of Vieri to slot it across the goalkeeper into the left corner.
1-1 Zamorano’s header from a corner was going wide but hits Reyes for Salas to pounce from six yards with his left foot.
1-2 Italy fail to clear a free-kick, Salas beats Cannavaro in the air and Pagliuca with a great header inside the post.
2-2 After Fuentes blocked a R. Baggio cross from the right with his hand. R Baggio hits the ball to the right of diving keeper, who gets a paw to it but the shot is too powerful, and converts the penalty laying the ghost of his miss in the 1994 final.
