  1. Hi Shahan,

    Good job as always. Really enjoyed all of your posts, especially the old magazines. Thanks a lot for allowing all football fans around to learn more about the history of the game.

    I have one question: In the post about the 1993 USA cup tournament match between Brazil and Germany, you mentioned:

    This tournament was the last time Lothar Matthaus played in the midfield for Germany. Starting the fall season, he was switched to Libero. He became the 25 th player to be tried in that position since Franz Beckenbauer’s retirement in 1977.

    Is it possible you could provide the list and the dates of the 25 liberos tried out during this 16-year period. It would be really helpful.
