Dino Zoff | 1972-74 | 1981-1983

Postby PES Stats Database » 2008 Dec 10, 18:58

Club: Juventus


Growth Type: Late/Lasting

INFO:

Spoiler: show
Dino Zoff is one of the best goalkeepers the world has ever seen. He has set lots of records in Italian and world football. For instance he is the oldest player to win the World Cup. In 1982 at the age of 40 he could collect the trophy as captain of Italy's team. And he is also the goalkeeper to have kept a clean sheet the longest time, from September 1972 to June 1974 (1142 minutes!) he was unbeaten. Haiti, of all nations, ended the run in the 1974 World Cup.

Zoff played most of his career in Napoli and Juventus and he played for Italy a record 112 times. In 1968 he was a member of Italy's European Championship winning team, but he was dropped for the Mexico World Cup two years later. Albertosi was preferred in goal in the tournament where Italy were runners-up. In 1974 Zoff was back in Italy's team, but despite his superb run of no goals conceded, Italy went out in the group stage. By the 1978 World Cup Zoff and Italy were among the favourites, they even beat the eventual winners and host nation Argentina in the group stage. But in a decisive final round match against Holland, Arie Haan's 40 yard shot sent Italy out. They played Brazil in the bronze match and lost there too.

But 1982 was to be Zoff's year, in his final World Cup he had success. After a slow start with only draws in the group stage, Italy then beat Argentina, Brazil, Poland and West Germany in consecutive matches and became worthy champions. As many other players, Zoff stayed in football after he finished playing and he has, among several jobs, been manager of Lazio in Rome and is now (Dec 99) national team coach for Italy.

Good and amusing comment Oriello. I've updated SP from 82 to 86.

I particularly find this part very useful:

Oriello wrote:// 57 min seems to be spitting a lot into his hands and checking his nose for snot?! especially before CKs.


Maybe to get a better grip on the ball? :lol:

***

He was partially updated. I've added Info, Videos, Additional Links, Growth type, Attack/Defence Awareness Card, extended Era from 1972-1973 to 1972-1974 and raised Consistency from 6 to 7.

I was thinking about, the only GK attributes that doesn't have a 99 is GKS, there is 3 98's, Schmeichel, Zoff and Buffon 2011-2012, whereas Yashin has 99 on Response and Buffon 99 in defence.

Whatching some videos of Zoff, I realise that he is the one who deserves 99 in GK skills, if you consider it his abilities to dive and hold the ball, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RX5EtY-X7jU look at 2:04, 3:40 and 4:51, he grips the ball in impossible situations, and my main argument is about gloves, since 90's the gloves have improved a lot, Buffon and Schmeichel used best quality gloves, however Zoff handle was all about technique, Buffon and Schmeichel also have better physical preparation, modern goalies really could fly, Zoff wasn't dominant physically, but his genius in fundaments put him on the top 3 of all time in my opnion

Schmeichel was the most complete, Buffon the most smart but Zoff was the most legendary, the oldest player to raise the world cup, we see Friedel in a high level with 40, but imagine winning the greatest championship on earth with the same age.

What makes Zoff the most durable and consistent keeper of all time is his maestry on fundaments, something that don't get worse with the time, sometimes it even get better, I bet we won't see Casillas with all his agility on a high level 10 years from now

Buffon's set, and maybe other keepers' as well, may get a revision further on (Buffon is likely to get 99 GKS if you ask me). Not saying anything against Zoff, he could deserve 99 GKS after all, but he won't be given such value just because of his legendary status.

buffon was definitely amazing on Euro 2012, during his early years (2001-2004) i don't think he desearves 99 on GKS, maybe on 2011-2012 version, if a 1981-1982 version of Zoff was created it would be 99 on GKS, after 20 years of goalkeeping he mastered all the fundaments, maybe in the future, if buffon keep his good form he gets a 99 on GKS, I think Euro's Buffon was great, but Zoff is closer to the perfection

It's amazing how keepers got better with the time, I mean, Brad Fridel is on the best years of his carrer with 41

I tried my take at an 40-41 years Dino Zoff, the one that was still one of the best keepers in the World at that age, and which went with Juventus once again in an European Cup Final, to sadly lose again. Obviously not the same guy physically, and not quite the same "leader" of the team as he was during his prime, Zoff was still one of the best keepers in the world at this time, if not the best, being battle hardened and being one of the most experienced keepers ever at this point, his maturity in the net and his level-headness having reached points never achieved before by any other keepers. Maybe GKS 99? I'd appreciate some feedback.

IMO Zoff is fine on 98 for GKS, but I find his DEF overrated, it should be on 96 like it were before.. Walter Zenga had much better positioning play, great in every move of closing angles and always to be on right place.. he had numerous great saves thanks to his excellent reading where opponent will move and predict where ball will go..

Even if we watch on how he could make saves and the ability to stop the ball with doesn't matter which body part or with mix of all these three key abilities we can easily see that he wasn't inferior to Zoff even better.. Zenga was monster in making saves thanks to his agility, skills with hands and amazing reactions..
