Brazil beating Russia 2-0 in 82 with wonder goals from Socrates & Eder.Unlike today , we did not know and see world superstars of football constantly on tv , so had never seen these magicians.They were still the most enjoyable team to watch in my lifetime.
that's it. it's not a bad thing, the access we have these days (imagine punting without having the internet) but it was like watching the Champions League, seeing all these guys you'd only read about. and it made them that much more intimidating when England played them, as it isn't like now, where we see the likes of Suarez every week. not that I'm saying the Italians and Uruguay's won't still be excellent villans in a weeks time

Totally agree. I think it's because they tend employ anoraks as commentators these days.
