Title

Fears for World Football: Argentines Perfect the Tactical Foul

Subject

Coverage of the 1968 Intercontinental Cup

Description

Coverage of Manchester United's encounter against Estudiantes de La Plata in the first leg of the 1968 Intercontinental Cup. This report from Brian Glanville recounts the events of the first game played at La Bombonera stadium in Buenos Aires and won by Estudiantes 1-0. Glanville's critical tone of Argentine soccer and its fans does not change, nor does his observation that the Argentine game was far different in the mid-1960s to what it had been known for in the past (skillful, entertatining, pyrotechnical).
