During the days Kevin Keegan’s plentifully filled perm graced HSV’s Volksparkstadion, the former Liverpool and Newcastle striker became a true footballing legend as he proceeded to twice claim a Ballon’dor.

Here he is in action during Hamburg’s European Cup semi-final against Real Madrid. Keegan and co eventually ran riot over the Spaniards, claiming a 5-1 victory (5-3 on agg) where they would later advance to face a Brian Clough led Nottingham Forrest in the final.

What the soon to be England manager could have done without of course before the biggest game of his life, which he of course lost, was this absolute thumping knock to the head mid game from big Vicente Del Bosque, the very same Del Bosque currently in charge of the Spanish national side.

And boy does he knock seven shades of s**t out of him.
