Soviet International
No, it wasn’t a game of victory at any price. There weren’t any political
demands or pressures. It was purely sport,
for the prestige of our country. No other tasks were imposed on us. Narrated by Terence Stamp He really had a huge success. Alfredo Di Stefano
Real Madrid
The club reached the top,
both financially and in terms of honours. He was an honest man,
who didn’t put his hand in the till. He always had a cigar to smoke, and was very polite. There are few people in the sporting
world who have done what he did. At Madrid, there were three or four of us
who gave the orders, not one, Alfredo was one, Santamaria was another, Gento was another, and Del Sol was the other. We gave orders in the areas we were playing. We insulted each other
and we quarrelled, but sportingly, because afterwards we came off
the pitch and were great friends. And we encouraged each other
to make things better. We didn’t give up, thinking
“Unlucky, our opponents were better.” No, you have to push and push and push. The final of the third European
Cup takes place in Brussels. Danova and Grillo in the build-up
to the first Italian goal, scored by Schiaffino. 1-0 to Milan. Kopa, marked by Beraldo and Cucchiaroni… And the equaliser comes through
an incredible shot from Di Stefano. The Spanish team has won
its third consecutive title against a noble and powerful rival. Milan put a new system into practice. Francisco Gento
Real Madrid
They turned into a very defensive team, and we were amazed by that new system. They played with a sweeper to cover us in a very pressured way, but we could cope with it
because we coped with all systems. We were El Madrid, Kopa, after the match, with Di Stefano, put the trophy in front of me. Nils Liedholm
Milan
They were saying
that we should really have won. But I said “Take the trophy back,
it won’t matter in the future.” “The only thing that will be remembered
from this game is that Real Madrid won.” What is your opinion of the Russian team? José Villalonga
Speaking in 1964
Apart from my personal opinion,
they are current European champions. Reaching the final again
shows they have exceptional quality. Having said that Hungary were magnificent, now we’re in the final,
the team to fear is Russia. José Angel Iribar
Spanish International
The Spanish team was very well balanced. The most important player, at least
in my opinion, was Luis Suàrez. Then again, we also had a very good defence, with Olivella, Zoco, Rivilla and Calleja. We used to perform very well, and
on top of that, the team played as one. When we arrived in England,
we weren’t seen as the favourites. Benfica had acquired
the same popularity as Real Madrid, Gianni Rivera
Milan
who had been the dominant team
of the previous years. Real Madrid lost their popularity
after the arrival of Benfica, so Benfica were considered the favourites. It’s difficult to get to the top, but
it’s even more difficult to stay there. Helenio Herrera
Speaking in 1964
Our rivals are jealous of us
not just because of our success, but because we are always at the top. For instance, Juve, Bologna, Milan, Roma, they always go up and down,
up and down, but we are always up there. I promise that as long as I am coach
of Inter, I want Inter to be at the top. Come and buy your straw hats! When they said that
Inter was the team of catenaccio, they made a big mistake. Giacinto Facchetti
Italian International
Inter weren’t only good at
defence and counterattack. It’s true that in matches abroad, we used to play a more defensive game. We had very fast players, so it was possible for us
to focus on the counterattack and achieve better results that way. But when we played at home, we concentrated on attacking football. The victory
in the European Championship of 1968 was extremely important for the Italian team. For the previous 30 years.
not only had Italy not managed to win
any international or European championship, we hadn’t even qualified from the group
stage of any important competition. Victory in the European Championship
brought the Italian team back to the level
of the best teams in the world. Wim Jansen
Feijenoord
Everybody at the time
looked up to Italy and Spain, the big countries with their great players,
Rivera and Di Stefano. The moment a cIub from a different
country won the European Cup, I think everybody from these countries
started to believe they could win it too. I think that was most important. Self-confidence in football,
especially for the northern countries, was very important at that time. Sir Bobby Charlton
English International We were dwarfs –
they thought there must have been a circus act. Jimmy Johnstone
Celtic
When they saw me. and Bobby Lennox.
Ronnie Simpson – no teeth. Ronnie had no teeth at all. He used to
put both teeth in the back of his bonnet, and keep them in the right-hand side. And we looked at these guys,
and said “My God. they’re film stars.” The Ambre Solaire.
and their teeth – they’re gleaming. We said “Uh-oh, We’re onto a doon here.” No, It was the reverse, wasn’t it? Jock Stein was so instrumental in it.
I couldn’t put words to it. Because people talk about Jock Stein as being the greatest manager ever, and the greatest manager ever for what? Jock Stein was the greatest manager
simply because he knew just exactly what he wanted
out of each and every one of us. George Best
Manchester United Wim Van Hanegem
Feijenoord
They were almost arrogant, as if they were saying “We still
have to play this, erm, Feijenoord…” But that’s trivial. It’s the way
they were standing around, very full of themselves, doing
a bit of warming up in a little circle. Besides the fact that we were motivated
already, that gave us an extra push. This phrase “total football” was developed during the period
Ajax were playing their best football – in the final years that I was there. Rinus Michels
Former Ajax & Netherlands Coach
Nonetheless, it is possible,
and I don’t doubt this, that other teams in the history
of football, like the Hungarians, and maybe the Austrians
even further back, the Wunderteam, played a football that
could be called “total football”. Wolfgang Overath
West German International
Schön stood for a new world,
for a different time. Helmut Schön was a trainer who tried to
be cooperative with his players, to talk. Sepp Herberger would say
“That’s how you do it.” “That’s how it goes.” Full stop. There were no discussions. Helmut Schön was the transition
to a new kind of trainer. Helmut Schön
Speaking in 1974
The ideal kind of football is a mixture of both the individual technique
of the South American with the knowledge of the European. We will never try to copy South American style, just as South American nations
can’t try and copy us or the English or other European nations. The Germans were a mixture
of good footballers, like southern Europeans,
like the Italians and Spanish, who were talented footballers, and others who were more like the English, with dedication, willpower, stamina and bite. And this mix was significant for the Germans. They didn’t just fight or play football,
they always did both. And that’s why the Germans
have always been so strong. Antonin Panenka
Czechoslovak International
My roommate at that time was Ivo Viktor. I told him the night before that I was
going to take a penalty like that. He was a bit pessimistic, and didn’t
think it was an appropriate kick for such an important moment
of a European Championship. But I took it like that anyway, and he was
the first to come and congratulate me, and we all piled on top
of each other in a heap. As it happens, I spoke to Pelé about it, lvo Viktor
Czechoslovak International
and he said “A penalty like that could only have been taken
by a madman or a genius!” Panenka was probably a combination of both! Bill Shankly
Speaking in 1974 Bob Paisley
Speaking in 1981 Kenny Dalglish
Liverpool John Keith
Author, England Jessie Paisley
Bob Paisley’s widow The first thing I did was look at the fans. I saw all the Italian flags. I still remember that moment vividly. Paolo Rossi
Italian International
I was happy because
we’d won the world championship, but at the same time sad, because it was over, and I knew I would miss that feeling. I decided on Juventus Michel Platini
Juventus
even though I knew nothing
about them, not speaking Italian. But I chose Italy because the fixture list
was better, fewer matches. I didn’t want to be in England playing
football over Christmas and New Year! A better fixture list, and a country
with a bit more sunshine! Gullit was more like a coach. He liked to give instructions
to the other players, but also make tactical
suggestions to the coach. Paolo Maldini
Milan
He liked to find the soIutions to the problems. Van Basten was a great player. He was more reserved than Gullit, but technically he was very good,
and he was very proud. In the build-up to the tournament. I realised I had a team
with great edge and motivation. This had to do with the fact that
in the previous years, it hadn’t worked out. There had been a lot of problems, and everybody was ready to make
something of it for once, you could tell. Franco Baresi
Milan
Rijkaard arrived a year later,
adapted immediately. and was reunited
with Gullit and Van Basten. He was also important to the club,
a good central midfielder who could take on three or four players
because he was physically strong. Jürgen Klinsmann
West Germany & Inter
The Holland-Germany game was at that time not just Holland against Germany,
but also AC Milan against Inter. And we were the lucky winners. The Dutch missed three or four
great chances right at the start that could have decided the game. We got better and better, and won 2-1. But it was more than
just Germany against Holland. lt was a Milan city championship. Quite simply. we missed a great chance
to become European champions, and we were badly shocked. I personally took a long time
to get to grips with it. You come so close, and then you just
give it away, you throw the chance away. It was, of course, an outstanding feeling, on the one hand because those were
the crucial goals for the team to win. We were a very close-knit team that had
been playing together for quite a while. It had always been our goal
to become champions of Europe. Oliver Bierhoff
German International
And there’s the fact that
when you come in as a striker and are perhaps frustrated because you haven’t played as well
as you wanted to in previous matches, it’s a great satisfaction. We knew we weren’t the best team,
technically or tactically, but we had a great team spirit. Our spirit was so strong that we pushed
to one side all our problems and said “We’ll fight and we’ll play to win this title
no matter who is playing us.” It worked. Aimé Jacquet
Former France Coach
I took my pilgrim stick
and showed it to all the players. I said “Who wants to stay with me?” “Who wants to have
a challenge with me?” “Who wants to stay? Come on!” I kept the ones who wanted to,
and eliminated those who didn’t. I took all the young players
of this new generation – Zidane, Dugarry, Lizarazu, Lots of young players
who had the desire and the quality. France managed to recruit and train
young players via the clubs. Marcel Desailly
French International
In addition, they had the opportunity
to gain experience abroad. When they reunited as the French
national team, it really took off. Each one could bring
something extra to the team, allowing it to move up to a higher level. It was a big match for both teams. Zinedine Zidane
French International
Italy were leading 1-0 until the last minute. It was quite spectacular.
because we changed the match result at the very last minute. For us it was a great match,
and it was our second big trophy. therefore it’s a particular memory. Best watched using Open Subtitles MKV Player

  1. @agfsqor yes i mean it. this is really fantastic. Listen to this, really lucky that i registered and earning more than $40 daily from this web site :). you can also get it from here >-> bit.ly/SZObZJ?=ecarpp

  2. Before Hungary beat England in Wembley, Ireland beat them 2-0 in Goodison Park in 1949. The English like to conveniently forget this.

  3. The Melbourne Football Club and the Geelong Football Club, playing Australian Rules football, are still alive and well today in the top league there. Both of these clubs were founded in 1859. Only a couple of football clubs of any code can boast an older age.
    Why does this documentary start atleast 50 years after something was already happening?
    Can I find a documentary on the history of 'football' (all codes/any code/any version) that addresses things before this one starts?

  4. Well you are ignorant about its role in the history of 'football'.
    Back in Britain 150 or so years ago football was a mish-mash of local leagues of various ways.
    Australian colonialists were met with this mish-mash and made an effort to have everyone playing the same game among eachother. Out came Australian Rules football.
    Britain realized this was a good idea, too. But the committee couldn't agree. Two general factions formed, and out came soccer and rugby as separate distinct versions.

  5. It's easy to realize why the atmosphere in English football has gone down during the last 30-40 years. In 1970's the average age fans behind the goal was about 19-20 years. Now it's something like 42-45. Old farts are wondering what the hell destroyed the soul of football. We now know it. It's was big corporate money, capturing clubs from their supporters, making football just another brand, killing traditional joy – killing hope and joy. Make it just another American bitch.

  6. WTF is this bullshit this game was not even invented in Europe at all it was brought in from China and was invented before England was England. Unbelievable how England would love to take credit for this why not keep history as it is. Fucking Poms

  7. I admit the version played today is different in many ways and the game has evolved  but just because you change some aspects does not qualify as you invented the original idea. its like saying you invented the light globe because you changed its style from the original.

  8. sorry anglo's but the most influential NATION 'S where south american nations we wouldnt have the football we have today without the genious and creativity of the south american players

  9. Great documentary, however… there is a hidden history of Women playing Football in the late 1800s with crowds and a reemergence in 1917 and the 1960s on wards… its a pity they "at least" could have given it 10 mins?.

  10. Shut all this "different country" bullshit up. It is a worldwide sport. We all feel the same joy and the same passion when we step out on the pitch no matter who or where we are.

  11. this is deeply biased moving more into the world of propaganda.  How were England able to compete in the olympics ?  What happened to team GB.  narrator being olympic champions DOES NOT make you World Champions

  12. The World name, for the World game of FOOTBALL evolved in Great Britain/United Kingdom, then it spread across Europe and because of the British Empire (at that time) it reached North America (the USA and Canada) and South America (Brazil Argentina Chili Uruguay ect, ect)
