  • By 1980 Herbert Prohaska, who began his football career in 1965, had helped professional club Austria Vienna become four times Austrian league champions and three times cup winners. In 1980 he, whose nickname was and still is ‘Schneckerl’ due to his curly hair, moved to Inter Milan and then to AS Roma. Then he returned to Austria Vienna.

The big ‘Miracle of Córdoba’ followed in 1978 with the legendary 3-2 goal over Germany. He played for Austria again in the 1982 World Cup in Spain.
