Like any tale, Schillaci’s dream wasn’t without troubles: called in the national team as reserve of Andrea Carnevale, Schillaci was aware of having a less important role. During the first match, after the middle of the second time, where the score was still 0-0, the coach Vicini sent him to the field: after just four minutes, Schillaci made the decisive goal, allowing the Italian team to win the game. Totò won immediately the hearts of fans, becoming the holder of the attack with Roberto Baggio, scoring in all games played against Czechoslovakia, Uruguay and Ireland. Schillaci became a real national symbol to the point that Roberto Baggio made him pull the decisive penalty kick against England.
