DAY 2: 1998 WORLD CUP FINAL
This final is mostly remembered for Zidane’s two towering headers but I always recall how Ronaldo was forced to play even though he’d had a seizure hours before kick off. During the game he was understandably like a ghost of himself. It’s a testament to the player that he moved on from such barbaric medical treatment to win the next World Cup in 2002. I used the work of Ryu Voelkel as a photo reference. Check his massive photo catalogue here.
