Igor_NettoIgor Netto, a footballer from the Soviet Union, was a person of exceptional honesty. The most famous episode proving that had place during 1962 World Cup match against Uruguay team. The score was 1:1, Igor Chislenko hit the goal, but the ball got into the goal from the outside, through the hole in the goal net. Netto (he was the team captain) informed the referee, and convinced him that there was no goal. Netto’s team won that match anyway.
