All goalkeepers are useless. You’re not an exception. Relax.
You were had – but don’t worry. When we were in the shower
after the game, he said to me Jorge Valdano
Argentine International
“During the whole move, I was waiting for the right time
to pass you the ball, as you were running alongside me
on the other side of the pitch.” This is why I say that the mind of
a genius works at an extraordinary pace, and with amazing complexity. It’s not that he just saw a bIue and white
shirt of an Argentine player – he knew it was me and not someone else.
To me that seems a miracle. Diego Maradona
Argentine International
I always say England allowed me to score the best goal of my life – a goal scored in a World Cup, a dream goal, a goal scored with the hand! La picardía is a grade of “badness” which takes genius a little
beyond the boundaries of the law. How beautiful! What have you done? Diego, what great happiness you’ve
brought to the whole of the Americas! In Argentina we celebrated the bad goal
more than the good goal, because it was against the English,
who seemed to deserve it. Shilton. You think that
you’re the hero. the phenomenon. If a ball crossed just over the line, and you swept it away
without the referee seeing it, would you go and tell him
that it was a goal? Narrated by Terence Stamp When the Sky Blues play, I play too. When we play, we play to win. Tonight, whatever it takes, we need to win. Argentina lead 2-0. He plays it too far.
It’s out of play. Up go the hands. Throw-in to Argentina, who lead 2-0
in the Estadio Monumental in Buenos Aires. Recoba to Rodrigues in the area.
In goes his low cross. It’s a goal for Uruguay, for me an own goal. Goal for Uruguay. Argentina were winning easily –
now there’s suspense. They went to Europe to try their luck. Eduardo Galeano
Author, Uruguay
and gave the world a new kind of football. They thought that Uruguayans
would be like all the rest – a child of English football – and that was true. But what happened in South America was that this British father had children
that didn’t take after him very much. The Uruguayans put on
a disastrous training session. They didn’t score a single goal,
they kicked the ball into the clouds, or missed it completely,
kicking the ground instead. and they bumped into each other –
it was a disaster. The Yugoslavs reported back
that Uruguay would be a piece of cake, that they were a useless team
who couldn’t beat anybody. This put Uruguay,
a small unknown country, on the map. The big star of the 1924 team was black – José Leandro Andrade. He was called “the Black Marvel”
by the French press. I’m going to tell you something. The only countries they talked about
back then were Argentina and Uruguay. Francisco Varallo
Argentine International
Brazil played,
but I don’t remember how they got on. People didn’t mention Brazil. My father was at that game,
and he had to shout “Uruguay, Uruguay”, or they would have killed him. He had to hide his Argentine flag. Waldemar Victorino
Uruguayan International
The Garra Charruía is our idiosyncrasy. The whole of Uruguay has it,
not just footballers. We always want
to push ourselves further, to come first. We’ve always liked difficult challenges,
and for us, football was a difficult challenge. The Brazilian players
felt the impact of the equaliser. Roque Maspoli
Uruguayan International
If one touched them, they felt cold. We realised then that although
we might not have enough time, we were close to beating them. The Uruguayans have a lot of self-love. Alcides Ghiggia
Uruguayan International
They go to the games,
and they don’t like to lose. So if you mix self-love
with that passion for winning, you sometimes get results
which aren’t expected. Hundreds of people were in tears,
crying, crying, crying. Juan Schiaffino
Uruguayan International
It was incredible, everybody was crying – the Brazilians because they had lost,
us because we had won. The Garra we will not lose.
The day we lose that, we will disappear. But it will always exist. Ezequiel Fernandez Moores
Journalist, Argentina
The scene of collective grief
after that defeat had a big effect here. Perón saw how a defeat in football
could affect a population, and he didn’t want
the same thing to happen here. Alfredo Di Stefano
River Plate
A forward line called “The Machine” was formed. It was Muñoz, Moreno,
Pedernera, Labruna, Loustau. They were truly a football machine. They could play from memory with great ability. They played beautiful football. In the 1950s, the stadia had more people
in them than in the year 2000. All of these stadia
were built with Perón’s money. Paradoxically, they were
golden years for Argentine football, but at the same time Perón
was scared that Argentina might lose if they played outside the country. If football was the national pride,
they couldn’t lose. We thought there were representatives
from European teams watching us. Humberto Maschio
Argentine International
But we honestly didn’t think
we would be transferred, because we saw Europe
as something very distant. José Sanfilippo
Argentine International
In the Americas, we were the best. Brazil and Uruguay had already played
in World Cups in 1950 and 1954, so the whole of Argentina, not only players, but officials
and the people of Argentina, thought we were already
champions of the world. It wasn’t the same thing
as playing against South Americans. The Europeans, with simple, cIumsy football, beat us easily. Why? Because we didn’t know how to mark. We were good with the ball, but none of us talked about
marking, or playing one-touch. No! If you gave us the ball, we had to
show everything we could do with it. From that moment,
Argentine football suffered a cultural attack. Cesar Luis Menotti
Former Argentina Coach
They started to say that to win,
you had to prepare yourself physically. But instead of integrating that with the creativity, talent
and imagination of Argentine football, the teams were transformed
into teams of aggressive fighters. It became impossible to beat anybody,
because it wasn’t our style. We played Real Madrid
in the Intercontinental Championship. Alberto Spencer
Peñarol
Here in Montevideo we drew 0-0,
in Madrid we lost 5-1. 20 minutes into the game
in Madrid, we were losing 4-0. The Europeans think themselves
better than the Latins. Pelé
Santos
The great dispute
between Latin teams and European teams creates a great rivalry, because the Latins think their football
has more technique and is more open, while the Europeans think that
their football is more organised and stronger. Peñarol, in 1960,
had just started a period of rebuilding. That’s why, in 1966, this rebuilding paid off. We met Madrid again,
and this time we took our revenge. The bad atmosphere surrounding that match was caused by an Italian journalist. Fernando Riera
Former Chile Coach
He must have been a bit stupid, as the Italian team were all here. But he said
“The women over here are all whores.” Leonel Sanchez
Chilean International
We told them with anger
“You Argentines have sold yourselves.” “You should be playing
with Argentina in Rancagua, not here with another national team.” I played for Italy, and I defended
the Italian shirt with all my might. I got a punch on my nose just because
I was Argentine and playing for Italy – that’s the way
they understood it, the Chileans. What a coincidence, that an Englishman
refereed the Germany-Uruguay match. Antonio Rattin
Argentine International
Uruguay had three or four players
sent off as well. And look! A German refereed
the Argentina-England game. It was all prepared beforehand
that we couldn’t go through. I showed him my captain’s armband,
and he said “Out, out, out!” And he sent me off. How did he understand what I was saying? He spoke German,
and I spoke Spanish. He’s a liar. He died a long time ago –
may God keep him in glory up there! But tell God not to let him come down
to referee any more games! Juan Veron
Estudiantes
We know that we wrote an important page in the history of South American
football, here at Estudiantes. It was a beautiful page for all small teams. It even got to the stage
that they were sending women to the opposition’s training camp –
it was constant gamesmanship. They even studied
the private lives of their rivals to wind them up on the pitch. Gianni Rivera
Milan
We were already on the pitch
when the Argentine players came on. They were all carrying a ball. As soon as they got close.
they all kicked the balls hard against us, to show us how the rest of the match would be. That match should be eradicated
from the history of football, because it was anything but a football match. It was a manhunt from start to finish. Carlos Caszely
Chilean International
We were in camp, and at about midnight the president, Pancho Fruksan,
turned up to tell us that the Soviet Union would not play,
and that we had qualified. We still had to turn up,
which I considered absurd, start the game, and score a goal. It was a symbolic thing.
They didn’t come because they said they couldn’t travel to a country
under a dictatorship, and where the national stadium
had been a concentration camp. When the military government
took office in March, Juan Alemann
Former Argentine Finance Minister
there was a consensus in favour of the military, because Argentina was in a chaotic
and ungovernable situation. It was the case of “The Disappeared”.
In reality they were dead. What happened was that the military
didn’t follow the normal methods of a quick judicial process –
they simply disappeared. There was no ceasefire. The military had effectively disarmed
the subversive terrorists, quite simply by killing them. A training ground is where artisans prepare to create the great personalities
in a game of football. With the will to be efficient,
yes, because you compete to win. But it has to be from
an aesthetic point of view and more linked to the sentiments
of the people. otherwise it doesn’t interest me. I cried a lot when he left me out, but Flaco Menotti didn’t make a mistake, because he won the World Cup. You can’t criticise that. We were aware that there was something
strange going on, even in the first game – Roberto Rivelino
Brazilian International
the way things were being done. And then Peru inexplicably lost the game
when they were playing so well. It is something I consider to be very strange. In all, it was a World Cup that
doesn’t make much sense to me. I think it’s disgraceful that somebody can say that a professional footballer in a World Cup is capable of doing that type of thing. I find it simply cruel. Mario Kempes
Argentine International
Holland had their chances, but we were more decisive
when the time came to scoring. When we got to the 14th minute, that psychologically important
moment just before the break, there was another move up the left flank.
The rebound, the excitement… The whole country
was willing me to score that goal. In Europe, it was said “If you have
one Argentine, you have a great team.” “lf you have two Argentines,
you have half a team.” “lf you have three Argentines,
you don’t have a team” – as if to say that we
couldn’t play as a team. The people had a great need
to show the world that we really had very good players, and that we were at the highest
competitive level in the world. It was his first own goal. Santiago Escobar
Brother of Andres Escobar
Unfortunately, their behaviour was savage, and that drove them to murder my brother. I think they were the only people
capable of doing that, because Andres was loved
by the whole country. Just for a bet that was made
at the World Cup in America, Andres lost his life. It was rough on the streets.
At that time in Colombia, Francisco Maturana
Formaer Columbian Coach
the situation was that
someone would say something, there’d be a reaction, and before you
knew it, a fight would end in a gunshot. Not only the death of Andres Escobar,
but all deaths are bad. Rene Higuita
Columbian International
There are nice deaths,
like when you are asleep in bed, but when they kill you
in that way, nobody deserves that – and even more so a person
as special as Andres was. The ticket receipts here
for our professional games were $5,000. Alfonso Senior
Former Millonarios President
That was for the good gates at the time – not only in Bogotà, but in Cali,
Medellin, and even Barranquilla. The gate receipts weren’t great. I presented Pedernera
so that he could salute the crowd, not as a player, but as a future player. That day, for the presentation of Pedernera, I received $35,000 in gate receipts. “The Ballet in Blue.”
It meant we were dressed in blue, with white shorts and bIue socks. It was if we were dancers in the theatre. It was a great team. When the state does not act
there is a vacuum, and this vacuum existed. Willington Ortiz
Columbian International
It’s undeniable. So the money from
the drugs trade found its way into this vacuum, and ended up controlling this vacuum. So money came into football, and that helped football develop better. To be honest, since I have been in football, I haven’t known the cartels to be
involved in the teams I have played in. Colombia, champions of America!
Colombia, champions of America! National, champions of America!
Colombia, champions of America! Colombia, champions of America!
Colombia, continental champions! Colombia, continental champions! My country! My beloved country! Hernan Palaez Restrepo
Journalist, Columbia
Everyone, even Pelé, was willing to say that Colombia
would challenge for the World Cup. The people heard this, and they became convinced
that we would be world champions. Faustino Asprilla
Columbian International
They were going to kill Maturana,
the family of his assistant, and a player, so there were lots of threats. That was where our dream ended, because with all the threats
and everything that happened, we stopped thinking about football. We were thinking about
our wellbeing and our families. In the middle is a nation of people
who don’t know where to turn, and don’t know
where the next bullet is coming from. But they believe in their country
and feel that this situation will improve, because this country deserves
a better life than it is living. Francisco Sa
Argentine International
I think that the source
of Argentine football has no limits, because even if you sell them,
more still come through. So it’s not a problem for us. Mexico participate in their local championship, Antonio Carbajal
Mexican International
in the Confederations Cup,
in the North American Cup, and in the Merconorte, and in the Libertadores, And what happens? There isn’t the capability to achieve our goals. He who takes on a lot, grasps little. Hugo Sanchez
Mexican International
I prefer quality to quantity. I would prefer it if Mexico
didn’t go to World Cups, because we don’t deserve it. If we deserve it, by competing
against the best, we will improve. With more competition,
we will have higher standards. We’ve made no impact at world level
because we haven’t had that competition. We had the enormous Iuck to encounter
a Maradona from another planet, a Maradona at the peak
of his football career. At that time, Diego was capable
of transforming to greatness any team. I had already tried so hard in 1982. I dreamt of lifting that cup,
and it didn’t happen. 1986 was my big opportunity. They were very calm. They said to me
“We are going to win, no problem.” There was a great serenity
and confidence in the team at that moment. It’s like touching the sky with your hands. It’s hard for me to define it. Sometimes there are good games
and sometimes not so good – but there are no bad games.
Football is great fun. Football, I carry it inside me
– even today. at 91 years old. I see the ball and I see that lovely
green grass when I’m in the stadium, and I still get that urge – it’s so beautiful! ENGLISH Download Movie Subtitles Searcher from www.OpenSubtitles.org

  1. URUGUAY 15 COPA AMERICA
    ARGENTINA 14 COPA AMERICA

    BRITISH ASSHOLES, THEY CREATED FOOTBALL BUT THEY CANT PLAY IT, CANT EVEN TALK ABOUT IT

  2. 1 we talk bout football most of the time
    2 as this documentary you decided to shit all over says we are technicaly 3 time world champs,
    3 we have one of the best leagues in the world and exactly what the fuck the copa america has to do with anything british is beyond me its got what? ..2 good teams in it
    4 and you wont exactly be getting the malvinas back with that attitude sweetheart LMAO

    so your logic is flawed and on behalf of the internets fuck off and take your fail with you LMAO

  3. 1 I am not argentinean, and I football is not related to politics
    2 England won only 1 world cup, and in a strange way.
    3 England never was an outstanding team, even with that league.
    4 in southamerica we have gained more international titles than any other region in the world
    5 every point that I just mentioned are out of any kind of discussion… numbers talk by themselves

  4. 1 if football has nothing to do with politics then tell that to andreas escobar and try and keep a strait face, or tell el salvador that honduras beat em fair n square no need to fight about it

    shit try telling mussolini that the 1938 world cup WASNT facist propganda and i will tell you you are lying

    2 england have won the olympic tourney twice …it counted as their was no world cup at that time …so thats 3 time champs fool, if you dont believe me watch the first part of this documentary

  5. you're saying pure bullshit… and england have won twice but as an AMATEUR SPORT/TEAM… it was like that until 1924…

    professional football was included in 1924 and they repeated it on 1928 olympics… after that the FIFA got out of the olympics and made the world cup as we know it.

    those two editions (1924 – 1928) were the only PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL tournament related to the olympic games, organized with the FIFA, that's why those two are considered as WORLD TITLES…YOU KNOW WHO WON THEN.

  6. oh ..and i just have to shoot you down one last time before you go,
    i never said ENGLAND had an outstanding team dummy, i said we had a great LEAGUE, but it kinda shits all over your theory we cant play football dont it, if we couldnt play it we wouldnt have the best fucking league now …would we, we dont have the best national sides sure,
    but since we are 3rd in the world rankings than yours must be crappyer
    once again you have put that razor sharp brain to something and come up with nothing

  7. plus, if you want we can compare your country with mine (Uruguay)… check the stats about mine, and keep your mouth shut, since we're the national team with more international official titles of all times.

  8. yes …england did ..hencewhy we are 3 time WORLD CHAMPS ..world champs ..not world cup winners dummy..and how am i talking shit …its in the documentary YOU ARE TALKING SHIT ON …honestly ..your a fucktard

  9. england were world champs twice through the olympic tournament …theirfore we are 3 time champs …you got that into your head yet or do i need to spell it out ….

    once again ….you just gone and proved MY point

  10. what ..two? …cos im sorry but being able to beat the shite you call a continent dont count ….theirs only 2 good teams in south america

    theirs 30 in europe lol

  11. ooooooh was that supposed to hurt?

    it had been a professional sport since the 1800s you silly fuck

    again ..im only quoting the DVD the history of football …you dont like it then its not my problem its yours lol

  12. now ….either check the first part of this documentary (the history of football) of leave and take your fail with you …..you know where the door is if you cant handle being wrong

  13. proof or gtfo lol ..i have backed it up with FACT i dont see you doing the same

    besides i got bored of owning people on this video a long time ago …..if you cant be arsed to read then its not my problem i would only be repeating myself

  14. monthly rankings are useless… but if those makes you happy, ok.

    btw, Uruguay was 2nd a month ago, or something like that… and we left out of southafrica 4th. so you and your royal mouth can kiss my ass.

  15. can i add to this if this was also the case then pray tell why do uruguay display 4 count em ……4 stars above their badge ..when they have only 2 world cup wins …hmmmmm could it be the 2 olympic wins they have ….pot calling kettle methinks lol

  16. your still proving MY point for me and hurting your own by pointing that out …..cos now your admitting that england can play it

    and to add to an earlier argument then why pray tell why do uruguay display 4 count em ……4 stars above their badge ..when they have only 2 world cup wins …hmmmmm could it be the 2 olympic wins they have ….guess olympic wins only count for you then

    so no thanks ..i will settle for you sucking my dick .once again

  17. ENGLAND DOES NOT EXIST IN THE FOOTBALL HISTORY, DON'T YOU GET IT?
    1 WORLD CUP AND THAT'S IT, NOTHING ELSE OFFICIALLY, IT'S EVERYWHERE, FIFA, UEFA, BLABLA…

    NOT EVEN A SINGLE EUROCUP… ENGLAND SUX BIGTIME.

  18. once again you put your keen mind to the task and fail

    if england dosnt exist in football history then who invented it, ..we have one 3 world championships just as you have won 4 ….and if you dont believe me then watch the first part of this documentary

    putting it in all caps and getting all butthurt about it dosnt make it any truer nor does getting irate about it cos you have no hard facts either

    now ..had i finished "cock sucker" ..no? ..then neither had you *pushes head back down again*

  19. I think acodike is from uruguay, besides… Uruguay won the olimpics twice, in 1924 and 1928, those two counts as a world title, so.. Uruguay's been 4 times world champions, and 15 america cups.
    I agree that the premiere league is one of the best leagues in the world, but you have to know that America is the most winner continent. Ciao

  20. he told me he WAS from uruguay some 10 posts back genius

    i also KNOW uruguay has won the olympics twice ….so has england …my point is if he counts uruguays olympic wins as a world title than so can england …he thinks otherwise …he is wrong

    i ALREADY know who has won the most of anything and i will think you will find that having brazil and argentina win things is NOT representative of a continent more teams from europe have won

    now scuze me but i must find somewhere to put a fuck

  21. I agree with you, i think the olimpics before 1930, where the "world cup", but i disagree with you when you say that brazil and argentina won almost averything… you have to know that Uruguay won more cups than Argentina. Argentina won 2 world cups, 14 america cups, 1 olympics. Uruguay won 2 world cups, 15 america cups and 2 olympics. See ya

  22. but again ….what has that got to do with the price of coffee

    germany has won 4 world cups and 6 euros (i think …i dont really care) but you dont see ME using those to illustrate MY point simply because it dosnt matter how many cups a team has won on their own continent (especially cups that dont matter to the rest of the goddam world) cos it dosnt make them the greatest team in the goddam world

    only WORLD trophys matter in that respect

  23. Colombia paraguay argentina brazil uruguay etc. Theyve all won the club world cup and we have won more clib world cups than europe barcelona sucks they won their first 6 years ago after 100 years of football

  24. estos argentinos le pagaron a los peruanos para que pierdan puta ivan a ganar el munidial ivan a dejar eliminado a argentina a argentina que campiono con maradona

  25. can anyone tell that Maradona at this time was going through some issues… at about 02:10 hes going on a rant

  26. Did you understand what he said, though?
    "If someone shoots the ball and it goes over the line and you grab it and pull it back.. Do you run up to the referee and tell him that was a goal?"

  27. hes trying to justify his actions that day and and he said Shilton would have done the same thing..like hes justifying his moral behavior about it….he put his hand in the sky and deflected the ball..that was outright and deliberate… I was actually referring him being high the whole interview this doc took place when he was having his drug issues…

  28. 1924 and 1928 olimpic championships won by Uruguay are recognized as ¨ world championships¨ officially by¨ FIFA¨,so that makes them 4 with 1930 and 1950.

  29. Brazil: 5 times WORLD champion. Uruguay (Ex Cisplatina Province, Brazilian territory) only 2 and Argentina (with corruption) only 2.  Olympic Championchips are NOT world championships and you can read that on the OFFICIAL FIFA website.

  30. I'm English and I don't have a problem with the Hand of God goal, Geoff Hurst scored a 'goal' that never crossed the line in the 1966 world cup final and Michael Owen and Gary Lineker dived to get us 2 penalties in other world cups, its all part of the game..

  31. It would have been fairer end up the chapter on Uruguay with 1954 WC, more precisely, with the match of the century, as it was then known the semi-final between Uruguay and Hungary.
    In the 60's the Uruguayan team regained its hierarchy, but the golden age that began in 1924, was closed at that World Cup in Switzerland.

  32. Every time I watch this I'm surprised by Colombia's inclusion. I mean: Argentina, Brazil and Uruguay are obvious. But Colombia?? That's like making an English football doc and focusing on : Manchester United, Liverpool, Arsenal….and Brighton (= Colombia).

  33. Some interesting facts: Uruguay won the first Copa América (1916), the first FIFA World Cup (1930), the first Under 20 South american tournament (1954 I guess) and Peñarol (Uruguay) won the first Copa Libertadores de América (1960).

  34. the clip at the end sums up our passion for football. " football i carry it inside me even today at 91 years old i see the ball and i see that lovely green grass when im in the stadium and i still get that urge. its so beautiful!"

  35. the greatest players in the history came out of south america. europe had and has great players but nothing compare to pele and maradona. Withouth the the players from south america the top clubs from europe wouldn't have a chance. remember flamengo with zico.

  36. 42:28 Sou brasileiro… mas honestamente, senti arrepios quando ouvi este locutor emocionado com o título do Nacional… realmente aquilo era o florescimento da Colômbia como potencia sul americana… e eu tive o prazer de ver esses caras jogarem…

  37. Why the fuck didn't this stupid, shitty documentary even talked about Colômbia, but not about Brasil?!?? Fuck that bunch of trash!

  38. people talking about hand of God goal being controversial? no, fuckers! you should talk about how on BLOODY EARTH a MIDGET defeated a pretty tall english goalkeeper in an air dive for the ball.

  39. Beautiful, tragic history.. much like that of South America itself. Such beautiful land, only to be pillaged by outside forces and ruled by evil men.. football is the chance to make things right, and so they have, the best players of all time are South American: Di Stefano, Pele, Maradona, Messi etc
