Did the Brazil regime really only want politically supporting players?
The refusal of Johan Cruyff to go to Argentina because of the human rights outrage. Did the visit by Argentina president to the Peru dressing room half hour before kick off influence the outcome of the last group game when Argentina needed to beat Peru by 4 goals to qualify ahead of Brazil, they won 6-0? Or was it the promise of payment in grain to all the Peruvian players aswell as large donation to Peruvian government? The final itself delayed by almost an hour because Argentina refused to play if a certain Dutch player was allowed to play whilst wesring a cast on a broken wrist.
Whatever the answers there is some superb action highlights and great interviews with players managers and tv personalities.
well worth the watch.
