  1. Cubillas was class…even if Ashley Cole does look like him.

    • Cubillas was a great striker – 5 goals in this tournament. I personally think he looks like a young Cassius Clay.

  2. Yes Cubillas was a largely unsung hero from the 1970 competition, and in netting five goals in four games he bettered Pele who only managed four goals in six, I would much rather have him playing for England than M.Peters or Francis Lee. Peru’s main weakness was their keeper the hapless pot bellied Rubinos who let in goals that most others could have saved with their eyes closed, he wasn’t of an international standard easily handicapped what might otherwise be a side of reasonable potency.
