Ans. The central image is of Spain and Real Madrid legend Emilio 'The Vulture' Butragueno

He scored 4 times in a 5-1 drubbing of the much fancied Denmark (Laudrup and Elkjaer were members of this squad, remember) in a round of 16 match at the 1986 World Cup, in one of the shock results of the tournament

The other 4 players are Manolo Sanchis, Michel, Rafael Vazquez and Miguel Pardeza

CONNECT: Along with The Vultue ('El Buitre'), these 5 home grown players formed the 'Quinta del Buitre' or 'The Vulture's Cohort', the formidable front line of Real Madrid in the 1980s. This front line, along with the talents of a certain Bernd Schuster, won Real 2 UEFA Cups and 5 consecutive Spanish Championships in the late 1980s
