Comments

Luigi "Gigi" Riva (born 7 November 1944) is an Italian former professional footballer who played as a centre-forward.
Unanimously considered to be the best forward of his generation, as well as one of the greatest strikers of all time, Riva enjoyed a remarkable scoring record for Cagliari, thanks to his composure in front of goal, strong left foot and aerial ability. He won the 1968 UEFA European Championship and was runner-up at the 1970 FIFA World Cup with the Italian national team, and led Cagliari to their only Serie A title in 1969–70.
With 35 goals (in all official competitions), he is Italy's leading scorer of all time. Due to his speed, power, and composure in front of goal, the Italian journalist Gianni Brera nicknamed him "Rombo di Tuono" (Roar of Thunder).
He was briefly president of Cagliari in 1986–87.
