Pierre-Louis BASSE
Voici les 11 buts qui ont fait de Pierre-Louis Basse un fou du foot ; à l'occasion de la Coupe du monde au Brésil, un superbe autoportrait en forme de ballon rond.
Each football lover keeps, in a corner of their heart, a secret list: that of their favorite goals. But these goals sometimes have nothing to do with the technical prowess of an unprecedented achievement. No, those goals are tucked at the heart of personal history. A sports journalist for over 30 years, a major influence in football, Pierre-Louis Basse commented on thousands of goals. He knows better than anybody that they always elevate the unexpected and the miraculous. Herein are 11 goals, forever impressed in his memory. Commenting directly as the precise motions were happening, by a Baggio, a Pelé, a Zidane, a Giresse or a Boli, Pierre-Louis Basse revives, in a very personal way, the magic, the surprise, the courage and the brio that make football so impressive.
