47) Davor Suker: Yugoslavia/Croatia, forward 1990, 1998, 2002
Davor Suker is thinking. He's retaking a penalty due to a teammate's infringement in a match against Romania at France '98. He's debating which way to go, his brain cogs almost visibly whirring. Such pressure would break a more flappable man. Not Suker. He nails it. Again. 1-0 – just one of six goals he got in Croatia's run to the semi final (besting Germany 3-0 en route). Cucumber cool.
