Mexico 1970. Was the first WC to be televised in colour, although many folk still had B&W tellies, my mates dad bought a colour one for the start of the WC and I was down at his for most games! Plus the bonus was Scotland wern't there to leave us disappointed.

1970, 8 yo and football daft. Colour TV just in time for the opening game. The mesmeric Brazilians, dogged Italians and never say die Germans and the 'England Expects' pre tourney headline, what a time it was. My old man kept a scrap book of the newspaper headlines and handed it to me after the final, I knew nothing about it and relived the whole thing through it countless times, still got it and occasionally have a flick through.

Out with 1970 loved Spain 82 and Argentina 78.

82 for me. Maybe because it was the first I could really understand. That Brazilian side was outrageous, such a joy to watch. So disappointed when they went out.
