INFO:

Fontaine was not born in France, but in Marrakesh, Morocco, on August 18, 1933, the son of a northern French father and a Spanish mother. Just Fontaine had four brothers and two sisters. According to the wishes of his father, who worked in the tobacco industry, Just should have dedicated himself to studying medicine, playing basketball and exercising track-and-field. But the son got his way playing football and won the national youth championship in his first year with AC Marrakesh. His road led via USM Casablanca, where he became Morocco’s top goal scorer, to France at the age of 20. In France, Fontaine played with Nice which he immediately led to a victory in the Cup and the national title the following year, and then with Rheims, with whom he became France’s top goal scorer twice. But the 1958 FIFA World Cup™ in Sweden was the big stage for his play and scoring capabilities. This event was sufficient to maintain his fame alongside later idols, such as Michel Platini and Zinedine Zidane of the more successful French football generations. The secret of his popularity is a performance that has never been equalled in the history of the FIFA World Cup™: Since that tournament in Sweden, Fontaine has held the record for most goals scored at a FIFA World Cup™ finals. In 1958 he netted 13 times, at least one in all his six matches, and that despite not being allowed to score two penalties for France. Fontaine scored three times during the 7-3 win over Paraguay; two in the 3-2 success against Yugoslavia; one in the third match against Scotland (2-1); another two in the quarter-finals against Northern Ireland (4-0); just one in the 5-2 semi-final defeat by the eventual World champions Brazil . But the highlight followed in the bronze medal match against Germany: his contribution to the 6-3 victory, was to boot the ball four times into the net behind German goalkeeper Kwiatkowski. The shirt with the number 13 became a lucky charm for Just Fontaine. Fontaine, who had earned just four caps until then, only made the squad coached by Paul Nicolas because his Rheims team-mate René Bliard was injured. Obviously, the double of championship and cup with his club Stade Rheims had marked out goalgetter Fontaine for the FIFA World Cup™. Another twist was that he played the tournament with loaned football boots. After his 13 goals, the record scorer returned them to his team-mate Stéphane Bruey.

Magic I've left STA in yellow because this what you've said is IMO more MEN. It's actually a very common thing in football that some players somehow disappear for some part of the game, than suddenly start to run like a maniacs. Even the guys I'm watching had that tendency like Masny and Panenka or even Jan Kozak. Not even mentioning Nehoda who sometimes looked like Dirk Kuyt but sometimes static like Ademir, so its not easy to rate them correctly...

Yes, could be a MEN issue for players who behave like that...Although in his particular case it could be both MEN and STA as he didn't seem resistant overall, in many situations he was like looking for a second breath.
