2016-11-2626th November 1996: UNFORGETTABLE

Juventus - River Plate, 20 years on. 

Today is a special day, remembering the 26th of November 1996, when that fantastic team reached the top of the world. 
When I speak about important goals in my career, I always mention the one in Tokyo as one of the first. It changed the match, it decided the match, it also changed my career and my life a little too. 

Among the many things that remain with me from that day, there is the splendid relationship started with Japan and the Japanese people. Today, on this website and on my social network, we will re-live some of those emotions. Here I have decided to offer you a extract from the Japanese version of my book “Giochiamo Ancora”, so much of what I experienced that day, exactly twenty years ago.
