SPAIN 82 WAS FAN­TAS­TIC

FourFourTwo - - UPFRONT - Keith Pick­ett, Liv­er­pool

Hav­ing read Stu­art Ma­clach­lan’s let­ter in FFT 289 say­ing that ev­ery­one should go and watch the World Cup at least once, it re­minded me of my trip to Spain in 1982. Af­ter see­ing Italy beat Poland at Camp Nou, we got an overnight train to Madrid (full of Rolling Stones fans!) and were lucky enough to buy some tick­ets for the fi­nal, for the equiv­a­lent of about £1 over face value. It is still my hap­pi­est foot­ball mem­ory to date.
