FKS World Cup Soccer Stars - Mexico 70

England Belgium Brazil Bulgaria Czech'a El Salv'r Israel Italy Mexico Morocco Peru Rumania Russia Sweden Uruguay W. Ger.


The FKS album refers to this team as 'Russia', though I suspect they competed as U.S.S.R. (or CCCP in Cyrillic).

Russia began the tournament with the difficult lead off game against the hosts. They came away with a 0-0 draw. In their next games they defeated Belgium 4-1 then El Salvador 2-0 to top the group over Mexico on goal difference.

In their Quarter Final game they lost 1-0 to Uruguay in an upset.

Scorers: Byshovets (4), Asatiani, Khmelnetsky.
