The uncapped, Part Ten

1- Kizito ‘Kiki’ Musampa

2- Sebastiano Rossi
Sebastiano Rossi arrived at AC Milan in 1990 with Arrigo Sacchi as Manager, initially as back-up to Andrea Pazzagli. Towards the second half of the season he established himself as a starter. He would hold on to his spot with Fabio Capello at the helm and win many Scudetti. This despite pressure from the likes of Francesco Antonioli, Massimo Taibi and Mario Ielpo over the years.
The path to the National was always blocked by the presence of Gianluca Pagliuca, Luca Marchegiani, Angelo Peruzzi and Luca Bucci.
He did receive two call-ups in late 1994 but remained on the bench.

4- Billy Stark
Scottish midfielder Billy Stark won titles with both Aberdeen and Celtic Glasgow in the 1980s but was never capped. He is routinely considered as a player who should have been capped.

5- Udo Horsmann
West German defender Udo Horsmann was a teammate of Franz Beckenbauer and Rummenigge at Bayern Munich (1975/83).
He won many titles along the way, but was never selected by the West German National team.
