Match Report

Over the years United have undertaken many trips abroad and to many countries, but at the end of season 69-70, United players could say "We were there when the World Cup took place in Mexico." Just before the tournament got under way in Mexico, United played two games in the capital against the Mexican World Cup eleven.

The first game was played within a few days of United's arrival in Mexico and with no time to acclimatise to the heat nor attitude were heavily defeated by the national side. Four days later, the two sides met again in the Olympic Stadium and fared much better going down only 2-0 with lan Mitchell missing form the penalty spot. Both games attracted around 75,000. On their way home United paid a high speed visit to Greece and went down 3-1 to Panathinaikos.
