French football legend Just Fontaine, who scored 13 goals in the 1958 World Cup in Sweden thus drawing attention to personal achievements for the first time, died Wednesday at the age of 89. His record remains unsurpassed to this day.
Euro 2016 will remain in France, UEFA has announced. The country’s hosting of the tournament has come under scrutiny since Friday’s terrorist attacks in Paris, which killed 129 people with many more seriously injured. France’s 1958 World Cup star Just Fontaine was one prominent figure to call on the country to give up hosting rights, claiming: “It is simply too dangerous”.
