Bio

Branko Segota

Branimir Šegota... was seven years old when his family moved to Toronto... had a shot that clocked 78 mph... earned $120,000 a year with the San Diego Sockers in the mid 1980s... in 2000, one of 17 alternates shortlisted by The Soccer Hall of Fame (he became an honoured member as part of the Class of 2002)...

as noted by the Rochester Lancers in 1980, “exceptionally fast, a potent scorer with an overpowering, accurate shot and great acceleration... as noted in a 1981 Canada Soccer program, "one of Canada’s most outstanding young players, Branko has rocketed to stardom in recent years on the strength of his goal scoring ability and ferocious shot"... wrote the Fort Lauderdale Strikers in 1982, “very fast with an overpowering shot”...

said Segota in 1980, “I’m a specialist at free kicks from 25 to 30 yards. Bam! You don’t even see them”... said Segota in 1981, “it’s my shot that is the strongest part of my game. I have been kicking harder than most guys since I was a kid. You can tell how hard my shot is when you hear it hit the boards in the indoor game”...
