In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
A bit of film from the Official West Germany 1974 World Cup production.

3rd July 1974.

West Germany v Poland for a place in the final.
Horrendous pitch condition due to torrential rain that led to the game being put back a couple of hours.
I remember getting home from school & turning on the TV not expecting to watch the game.A nice surprise.

Poland of course eliminated England in that famous game at Wembley in Oct 1973.They were a very good team,probably the best all round team at that tournament.West Germany were fortunate to beat them.
Poland won the 3rd/4th Play Off game the following Saturday.

In 1969-70 MOTD had a new format, but it only lasted one season. It was more like The Big Match, with regional variations. I don't remember it, just before my time, but I was wondering if any Exewebbers did?

ECFC featured twice, home to Northampton, away to Wrexham. (That's according to the listings, which aren't always reliable). I haven't found any footage on YouTube, does any exist at all? See the listings here ...
