Argentina legend Mario Kempes scored 20 goals in 43 appearances for his country, playing in three World Cup finals tournaments (1974, 1978, 1982).
The striker - nicknamed El Matador - was the star of the show in 1978. As the only foreign-based member of coach Cesar Menotti's squad while plying his trade to huge success with Spanish outfit Valencia, Kempes top-scored with six goals. It helped spark celebrations for the host nation as his double in the final earned Argentina a 3-1 victory against Holland.
