Description

Mexico, the summer of 1970: Pele, Brazil 4 Italy 1 in the Final, Gordon Banks' save against Brazil, Bobby Moore and the Bogota bracelet, Bobby Charlton's substitution, televised match action (in colour), the single 'Back Home', the Esso coin collection ...all these and more, the familiar and the not-so-well-known, feature in Jeff Dawson's account of the 1970 World Cup, the sexiest World Cup of all time. Using interviews with players involved and personal childhood recollections, and having studied hours of videotape, Jeff Dawson pieces together the events of Mexico 70, inviting the reader to 'taste the Brooke Bond, smell the B & H and feel what it was like that English summer, switching on GOOD MORNING MEXICO with Frank Bough' - and also to remember what it was like when England had a decent international side.show more
