Mario Kempes scored 20 times in 43 appearances for Argentina and represented La Albiceleste at three FIFA World Cups.
Though he failed to find the target in either the 1974 or 1982 editions, the former Valencia star struck six times on home soil in 1978 to inspire his team to their first World Cup crown.
Those goals and inspirational performances earned Kempes the tournament’s Golden Boot and Golden Ball awards, and to this day he is one of only three players – along with Garrincha (1962) and Paolo Rossi (1982) – to have won both at a single World Cup.
