Totò Schillachi - Bolt from the Blue

Leapt between two against Austria
"You'll score," said Tacconi
Eternal City with a mass cheer
Rome salutes Toto Schillachi

Watching the Palermo boy fly
Heading the Czechs a swift death wish
Swerving drive against Uruguay
Uppercut to Big jack's Irish

Play off against England did proud
Fleeting hero who made a breakthrough
Arms outstretched he milked the crowd
Toto the bolt from the blue

Azeglio Vicini's much fancied Azzurri
Just short of World Cup glory
Baggio's magic adding such memory
Le Notti Magiche di Totò Schillaci
