Estanislao Basora Brunet (born Colonia Valls, Barcelona, November 18 1926) is a former Spanish Catalan footballer who spent most of his career at CF Barcelona. In 1974, during the club’s 75th anniversary celebrations, he was included in their all-time best XI. Basora also played for both Spain and the Catalan XI. At the 1950 World Cup he scored five goals for Spain.

CF Barcelona

During nine seasons at CF Barcelona he played in 373 games, scoring 153 goals in all competitions. He was a prominent member of the team during one of the club’s most successful eras, winning the first of his four La Liga titles under coach Enrique Fernández in 1948. Other members of the squad included Josep Escolà, Velasco, Mariano Martín, Josep Gonzalvo, Marià Gonzalvo and César. He also scored the opening goal in the 1949 Copa Latina final as CF Barcelona beat Sporting Lisbon 2-1. Then, together with César, Ladislao Kubala, Eduardo Manchón and Moreno, he was part of a legendary forward line that helped the club win five trophies during the 1951-52 season. Basora scored the opening goal in that season’s Copa del Generalísimo final, a 4-2 win against Valencia CF. Others members of the team, coached by Fernando Daucik, included Emilio Aldecoa, Joan Segarra and Antoni Ramallets.

International career

Between 1949 and 1957, Basora also played 22 games and scored 13 goals for Spain. On June 12 1949 he scored on his debut in a 4-1 win against the Republic of Ireland. A week later on June 19 he scored a hat-trick within fifteen minutes against France at the "Colombes". The French press subsequently nicknamed him "The Monster of Colombes".

Basora also played for Spain at the 1950 World Cup, forming a formidable partnership with Zarra. In the first round of the competition Spain were drawn in the same group as the United States, Chile and England. In their opening game against the United States, Spain were 1-0 down with ten minutes to go before Basora scored twice inside a minute. Zarra then added a third, making the final score 3-1. In their second game they beat Chile 2-0 with Basora and Zarra again on target. They then confirmed their place in the next stage with a 1-0 win against England, with Zarra heading in a Basora cross. The second round of the tournament featured a single play-off group that also included Uruguay, Brazil and Sweden. In their first game against Uruguay, Spain were 1-0 down before two goals from Basora gave Spain a 2-1 lead. However Uruguay, the eventual winners equalised to make the final score 2-2. Spain lost their remaining two games in the competition and eventually finished fourth.

Between 1948 and 1958 Basora also played 6 games and scored 4 goals for the Catalan XI. On January 26 1955 he played alongside Ladislao Kubala and guest player Alfredo Di Stéfano in a game against Bologna at "Les Corts".
