Career Profile:

A tough tackling, fiery tempered, nightlife loving player of undoubted talent, notable for winning the World Cup with Argentina in 1978 without having a club.

Time Vault Soccer “doff’s it’s cap” to this trailblazing Argentinian with a representation of the 1977 – 78 season when Tarantini helped lift the World Cup for the hosting nation.

… Just prior to his signing for Birmingham City where we proceeded to knock out Manchester Utd’s Brian Greenhoff before wading into the crowd to punch one of his own clubs fans.

Card Profile:

Position:              Defend (Left)                                                                                              Rating:                 2 Stars                                                                                                          Skill Stats:           ATTACK    3           DEFEND    5                                                         Special:                                                                                                                       

Ferocious tackle. Play in defence in response to a <3* card played in attack by your opponent, both cards are immediately discarded. Cancels opponents skill.

Season Stats:                                                                                                                      Year                      Team                          App          Gls         Hons                                         1977 – 1978         N/A                              0    (7)       0    (1)    (World Cup)

Strategy Tip:  A solid defender with a physical edge, Tarantini is best suited to man marking an opponent’s low ranking special skill player to nullify their strategic impact or to prevent your opponent getting a shot off. He remains no slouch when it comes to general defensive duties and can be pressed into attack if required.

Features in: “Debut 60’s v 70’s –  Card No: 19/32”

      Hi C The D (Please be a real Dragon), Yes all 32 players for Time Vault Soccer “Debut” 60’s v 70’s are confirmed and we are just finalizing 50’s and 80’s expansions. We will be announcing full line ups here over the coming weeks. Which 3 players would YOU like to see in the game? Thx for getting in touch, keep on Dragon-ing :).

      … Johnny Hayes, Stanley Matthews and Len Shackleton. Claire Gouge, winner of the recent “Chairman’s Choice” challenge selected Sir Stan to be included in the 50’s deck and that is being pulled together :). Johnny Hayes (Fulham F.C) and Len Shackleton (Sunderland F.C), two undisputed legends and very worthy of inclusion in the Time Vault Soccer card game.

      Each Time Vault Soccer footballer card represents one season of a players career. That card reflects the players skills and stats for that season. Which years would you pick for Matthews, Hayes and Shackleton?

      Thanks for getting in touch.
