Mexico, the summer of 1970: Pelé, Brazil 4 Italy 1 in the Final, Gordon Banks¿ save against Brazil, Bobby Moore and the Bogotá bracelet, Bobby Charlton¿s substitution, televised match action (in colour), the single ¿Back Home¿, the Esso coin collection . . . all this 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.
Where the events of 1966 have been well documented, any books dedicated to the 1970 tournament have been long out of print. Using interviews with players involved and personal childhood recollections, and having studied hours of videotape, Jeff Dawson, acclaimed author Tarantino: the Inside Story, 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.Biografía del autor:
