They Were A Bit Good

It's thirty-seven years to the day since football's high watermark. Brazil's World Cup win in 1970 has long been seen as the game's Sistine Chapel, its Ulysses, its Sergeant Pepper (or Revolver. Or Take That and Party. Whatever you're having yourself). Of course, the filter of nostalgia and the immortal splash of colour film in which their feats have been preserved have burnished their living memory, but the clip below reminds us that, in the simple matter of playing ball, the 1970 Brazil team were the best you will ever see.

And Carlos Alberto recalls that fourth goal.

What a superb team. Nice work on the video there too.
