You must have been searching Google for “national disasters” or “Boris Johnson“ as he is better known and the Facebook algorithm popped up that game.

This link just popped as a notification on YouTube.

I've just started to watch. God I feel old...

Love watching that game, remember been excited leading up to the game, probably one of the 1st England games I watched & feeling gutted after the game, we played so well, unfortuantly their keeper (the clown according to Cloughy) played better

I bought the ticket many years ago

I was 6 but still remember being gutted and understanding the ramifications.

Watching on a black and white tele as well.

Was this the infamous Norman Hunter 'non tackle' game and the one where Cloughie was a pundit and called their keeper a 'clown'
Felt bad after that game.
