|Name||Mario Alberto Kempes|
|Nation Squad No.|
|Year Professionally Retired||1986|
Nicknamed 'El Matador', he was credited by some with revolutionising the role of centre-forward, with his powerful, surging runs into the box, and his shots from outside the area. This style of play was difficult for defenders to play against, since many strikers at the time maintained the traditional style of concentrating on playing within the 18 yard box.
He won 43 caps for his country, scoring 20 goals. He also played in three consecutive World Cups for Argentina, winning the competition in 1978, a tournament in which he not only won the Golden Boot with 6 goals, but also scored twice in the final against the Netherlands.
