Till this day, people recall and ponder all over the winning goal that he scored during the semi-final against Brazil. This unique talent is clearly remarked as one of the greatest. But things were not easy for Giuseppe during the early stages of his career, as AC Milan rejected him.

The centre forward had a respectable career in which he played as a centre forward. Acknowledging his skills, he was transferred from one club to another for record amounts of money. All these moves worked in favour of these clubs with AC Milan being the highlight. That particular move saw him hold to another Italian title in 1996.
