in praise of ALFREDO DI STEFANO

He met Che Guevara in Columbia in 1953…………..

In a strange aside, we hear how the “rambling tramps”, as Guevara and Granado styled themselves, had a chance meeting with the Real Madrid soccer player Alfredo Di Stefano, and asked him for tickets to a match (which he gave them). In later years, Di Stefano could still remember the incident, but he was astounded to discover that one of those scruffy Argentinian boys turned into a revolutionary leader

Who can forget that European cup final at Hampden Park in 1960 – one of the few games televised live in them days….magic………GENTO – PUSKAS – DI STEFANO bettering the VAVA-DIDI -PELE of Brazil in SWEDEN in 1958.
