Luis Suárez

Date of birth: 02/05/1935
Position:
Midfielder

Internazionale Milano inside-forward Suárez was the undisputed man of the match in the 1964 UEFA European Championship final against the USSR. He controlled the game in the stylish, swaggering manner of a player full of confidence after inspiring Inter to a 3-1 victory over Real Madrid in the European Champion Clubs' Cup final a few weeks earlier. Winner of the Ballon d'Or in 1960, his international career spanned 15 years and yielded 32 appearances and 14 goals. The Galicia-born midfield general later coached Spain at the 1990 FIFA World Cup.
