Game of the Century - FIFA World Cup (soccer)...



Item # 674050

June 18, 1970

LEOMINSTER ENTERPRISE, June 18, 1970

* Italy 4-3 over West Germany
* FIFA World Cup soccer
* Game of the Century


The sport's section (page 7) has a one column heading: "Italy vs. Brazil For World Cup" First report coverage on the semi-final games of the 1970 FIFA World Cup. The Italy vs. West Germany match is known in the soccer World as the 'Game of the Century'. With soccer being a somewhat unknown sport in the United States at the time, it is exceedingly difficult to find any reports of the World Cup in American newspapers, coverage lacking in several major city publications.
Complete with 12 pages, light toning at the margins, small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
