Hungary v England, 1988: Video Flashback

The latest video flashback takes us back to 1988 when England was a terrible football team despite finding glory just two years later in the 1990 World Cup.

This video features Brian Clough and Brian Moore. Cloughie makes a flub in the beginning of the analysis but doesn’t seem to care, which is followed by commentary from the legendary Brian Moore and Trevor Francis in this match which ended 0-0. It was a friendly for England before their disastrous 1988 European Championship.

One more note. Keep an eye out for how much they tell the viewer about Hungary in their pre-match analysis. Just goes to show how far we’ve come nowadays with information more readily available thanks to the Internet and especially online soccer databases and YouTube.
