Old team and match Photographs-Part one

Another thing that I will be doing on this blog is to add historical team and match photographs.
The photos will be both national teams and clubs.

Photo : from Mondial, April 1981

I believe this is Brazil’s lineup prior to the match vs Colombia in 1981
February 1, 1981
Bogotá, Estadio Nemesio Camacho 'El Campín'      
Colombia 1-Brazil 1 

I believe it is Colombia, because Brazil’s physical trainer is holding Colombia’s FA’s logo

Standing from Left to Right : Joao Leite, Juninho, Edevaldo, Luizinho, Cerezo, Junior
Seating from Left to Right : Paulo Isidoro, Socrates, Reinaldo, Batista, Ze Sergio

Note : The caption (from the magazine that I scanned the photo from) names Juninho as Oscar, but that is definitley not Oscar

  1. Interesting to note that the Brazil photo features the trainer, but not the substitute.

    Who is the French player wearing the face protector in the 1977 photo?
