Italian striker Ciro Immobile is on the verge of a dream World Cup debut that has revived memories of Toto Schillaci's incredible campaign at Italia '90 .Schillaci, who retired with only 16 caps and seven goals for Italy, told La Gazzetta dello Sport that Immobile-Balotelli would be "a great partnership.Schillaci went from zero to hero in 1990, at the World Cup hosted by Italy, coming off the bench to score six goals that helped him cement a place in Azeglio Vicini's starting lineup and win the "Golden Boot" award.As opposed to Immobile, who scored 10 goals in 14 games for Italy at under-21 level, the then 25-year-old Schillaci had never played for Italy when he was picked from relative obscurity after winning the Italian Cup and UEFA Cup with Juventus.
