colour of Real Madrid
scoring a great goal.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Hit a fine hat-trick
hammering Eintracht Frankfurt
European Final.

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Up their with Puskas
Pele,and Eusebio
could be number one ?

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Another legend gone
from an era which was the best
sleep tight Alfredo.

When I was a lad in the sixties we only really got to see the great foreign players in football annuals and magazines.
But I recall my dad saying the name Di Stefano and how great he was,so I’d pretend to be him when playing over the fields now and then.
Eusebio,Puskas,now Di Stefano,three names from an era I say was the best. Now these three were legends !
