Celtic: The Lisbon Lions

Celtic: The Lisbon Lions

by Andy Dougan (Author)


On May 25, 1967, Glasgow Celtic beat Inter Milan, as Internazionale were then known, by two goals to one, and became the first British team ever to win the European Cup. The 11 local lads in the Celtic team - who were all born within 20 miles of Celtic Park - took on the millionaire superstars of Inter and created Scottish football history. This is the full story of Celtic's 1966-67 European Cup campaign. A chapter is devoted to each of the games, from the opening rounds to the final itself, and the historical perspective is enhanced by first-hand accounts from the players, their contemporaries and the fans.
