Wait, maybe this one's a better picture:

FUSSBALL: Nationalmannschaft 1997/Team BULGARIEN/( BGR )
The Bulgarian Wolf

Look at those eyes. Look at that beard. Look at that goddamn hair. They didn't call him the 'Bulgarian Wolf' for nothing

Trifon Ivanov played central defence for a bunch of clubs (ranging from CSKA Sofia to Real Betis, Rapid Wien to Floridsdorfer AC) from 1983 to 2001, and was capped a commendable 76 times for Bulgaria - starring in their stellar 1994 World Cup run that saw them finish fourth. A defender in the old-school mould (no-nonsense, hard tackling, strong as oak), he was renowned for his long-range shooting prowess.

His main skillset though, I presume, lay in scaring the bejesus out of opposition forwards... Just look at that face!
