This review is from: Once In A Lifetime [DVD] (DVD)
Amazon asked to write a review - my first. Fascinating documentary on Cosmos in '70s and into '80s - Pele, Alberto, Chinaglia and the big German chap. Some good action clips (mainly goals) including Pele calling the legs away from Rodney Marsh (in Cosmos v Tampa Bay Rowdies - apparently that's as near as it got to Rangers v Celtic).

Got a fright with the Cosmos goalie posing for scud books to earn extra cash before the big investment and then Pele arrived, so if you're watching in polite company be prepared to close your eyes at that bit. Great story on friendly vs (I think) Haiti, who all defect before the game, so the Cosmos win the final by a distance, playing against a scratch select who hadn't played together before.

Recommended as history. Easy to tak a high tone and mock it all, but they've qualified for more World Cups recently than Sccotland, so not a bad legacy.
