Kempes Recall For Argentina

“It’s 1977, and with the World Cup on home soil less than twelve months away, Argentina coach Cesar Menotti is getting desperate…. The More gloomy the fans in Argentina became over the recent series of prestige friendlies, the more optimistic has become Mario Kempes over his chances of returning home next summer to lead the World Cup bid. A few months ago the chances of Kempes, who joined Valencia from Rosario Central a year previously, being drafted into Cesar Menotti’s squad, looked minute. In fact, in March when Kempes met Menotti while Argentina were playing in the Real Madrid 75th anniversary tournament, the Argentine coach never even bothered to raise the subject with the 22-year-old centre forward with legs like tree trunks. Since then everything has changed.” In Bed With Maradona
