Remembering Jimmy Magee

 

Sir, – My favourite Jimmy Magee quote was from the 1982 World Cup semi-final. It was Germany v France in the penalty shoot-out, and the winning penalty was converted by “Horst Hrubesch from Hamburg, the man they call ‘The Monster’”. Still in my brain after 35 years. – Yours, etc,
