Some dubbed him Two-Gun Tino when his love of firearms got him into trouble but, in the colours of Parma, he was a footballing marksman of magnificence.
Giving defenders a head-start, Asprilla could burn them for pace at will during his first four-year reign at the Ennio Tardini.
He famously helped his nation to dismantle Argentina in a World Cup qualifier but, after Emilia-Romagna, the wheels came off his career.
He had some meteoric games with Newcastle, disappointed on his Parma return and fizzled out across South America.
But his searing skills are burned on the retina to this day.
