  • Description

    The problem of the continues drift of talented South American footballers to Europe was highlighted in Paris on Wednesday (16 October) when Hector Yazalde emerged as Europe's top goal scorer for the season to win the annual Golden Shoe Award.

    The little Argentinian finished with 46 goals for his club Sporting Lisbon ten goals ahead of Hans Krankl of Rapid Vienna.

    The drift to Europe has caused major problems for both the Argentine and Uruguay, who have lost many of their best players, a factor blamed for the poor showing by both countries in the recent World Cup.

    The Golden Shoe is valued at 250 pounds sterling.

    In equal third place were Germans Gerd Muller (he won in 1970 and 1972 and came second last year) and Josef Heynckes.

    Awards also went to Wilhelmus Janssen, captain of the Dutch team Feyenoord and German idol Franz Beckenbauer, captain of Bayern Munich....the two clubs having tied for the top team award.

    A special award went to Tunesia's top goal scorer Habita.
