A Great 3 mins 32 seconds from a program called: “100 Great Sporting Moments”, which looks back on the unrivaled success of a 11 men from Glasgow, with interviews and footage (Spoiler ALERT! It contains Pat Nevin).
In a week when the great trophy has been sullied by a new addition to the winners list I leave with a great quote from the book Inverting The Pyramid- a History Of Football Tactics from Inter Milan defender Tarcisio Burgnich:
“I remember at one point Picchi turned to the goalkeeper and said ‘ Giuliano, let it go, just let it go. Sooner or later they’ll get the winner. I never imagined my captain would tell our keeper to throw in the towel. But that shows you how destroyed we were at that point.”
Happy Lisbon Day.
