Football Discipline Facing Big Test in Argentina

Subject

Coverage of the 1968 Intercontinental Cup

Description

Coverage begins of Manchester United's highly-publicized encounter against Estudiantes de La Plata in the first leg of the 1968 Intercontinental Cup. This opinion piece includes negative remarks about the "Latin" temperament, and the violence witnessed at IC games played in South America, but the author tries to soften his critique by stating "We must not sit in pre-judgment over 6,000 miles away. We cannot be the final arbiters in absentia. Nor are we, the British, necessarily in the right." The article, then, is a call for Manchester United to lead by example with "no arguments, no retaliations, no provocation."
