Title

Inter-Continental Cup: Football on Trial at Old Trafford

Subject

Coverage of the second leg of the 1968 Intercontinental Cup

Description

Pre-game coverage on the day of Manchester United's highly-publicized encounter against Estudiantes de La Plata in the second leg of the 1968 Intercontinental Cup. The article focuses on the aggrieved sense of national pride by Estudiantes at how the British press continue to label them as violent and "animals," the effort at establishing goodwill by both teams, and what Estudiantes must do to avoid the "traps" the Argentines want to set. If the series goes to a third game, it will be held in the neutral site of Amsterdam.
