Notes: Outscored Juventus, Torino, Napoli, Roma, Sampdoria, Parma, and Inter Milan who were all ranked above Foggia.
The miracle of Foggia is a minor bookmark in the history of the Serie A during the 1990s when the league was the best in the world.
Foggia climbed their way back into prominence from Serie C and finished ninth with a bunch of unheralded footballers during the 1991-1992 Serie A season.
Foggia scored and conceded 58 goals (62 percent of which came from Baiano, Signori, and Rambaudi).
Little-known Foggia was managed by chain-smoking Zdeněk Zeman who was insistent on adopting a 4-3-3 formation encapsulated by short, snappy passing and an emphasis on triangles.
This was back in a time when sweepers, man markers, catenaccio-like football was the norm in the Serie A.
Baiano later played for Derby County and was voted 1998 player of the year.
Signori became one of the most lethal Serie A forwards. In 2011, he was given a five-year ban from all footballing activities for match-fixing.
Rambaudi would enjoy success with Sven-Göran Eriksson’s Lazio.
This Foggia side also included Dan Petrescu and Igor Shalimov; both went onto bigger and better things in Chelsea and Inter Milan, respectively.
