    I can still see that in my head, probably the worst foul I have ever seen. Compounded by the ref taking no action whatsoever apart from giving Germany a goal kick. I don't think Schumacher ever showed any remorse either.

    It isn't any less shocking all these years on. By all accounts Schumacher was largely unconcerned and brushed off the incident at the time, when public outrage grew he held a press conference where he apologised but still said it was unintentional, he did apologise to Battiston in person and it was accepted.
    At the time a French newspaper ran an opinion poll to find out who was the most hated person in France, Schumacher topped the poll and Hitler came second! This suggests the reason for the apologies....
