World Cup 1978 - Day Four

Sunday 4 June

So every team had now played one game and we patiently waited for the second batch. The main news story breaking was that Willie Johnston had failed a drugs test and rumours circulated of him, or the whole team, being sent home.

Meanwhile us kids were in the rec practising shooting like Teofilo Cubillas – jumpers for goal posts, balls hitting fences, angry neighbours and so on.
