    DescriptionClassic World Cup clashes brought to life and re-evaluated by two of the writers of the popular Guardian minute-by-minute football blog. Watching each match in real time and reacting to the twists and turns of the action, Murray and Smyth bring you the real stories of the matches as they happened, not the highlights package or rose-tinted version. From the crowd swarming over the pitch moments before the Brazil-Uruguay classic of 1950 kicked off, to the dubious refereeing decisions that decided England's single triumph at Wembley, this is the history of the World Cup as you've never seen it before. As well as 30 classic moments from other matches, the games given a full report include: 1950 Uruguay v Brazil 1962 Chile v Italy 1966 England v Argentina England v West Germany 1970 England v West Germany Italy v West Germany Brazil v Italy 1974 West Germany v Holland 1978 Scotland v Holland 1982 Brazil v Italy West Germany v France 1986 England v Argentina France v Brazil 1990 England vs Cameroon England v West Germany 1994 Romania v Argentina 1998 Argentina v England 2006 Italy v Germany 2010 Spain v Holland
