Soccer Corner Magazine September 1977


“NASL Notebook” features all the moves and gossip throughout the league at the time. “ASL Action” did the same for the second circuit. You just couldn’t find this information anywhere.

This is a Goalkeeper Special Edition

Be sure to check out the feature on Alan Mayer of the Las Vegas Quicksilvers. He had so many concussions that he wore a unique helmet the rest of his career.

Next, writer Brian Glanville describes Russian Goalkeeper Lev Yashin—arguably Russia’s greatest player ever.

After that, the New York Cosmos Shep Messing is the subject of a lengthy feature article.

While we’re talking Goalkeepers, who can forget World Cup star Gordon Banks of England. Writer Nigel Clark writes about his brilliant career in England and the tragedy of losing an eye in a horrific auto accident. Even with one eye Banks was better than most.

Culminating this Goalkeeper issue, writer Jeff Cross describes Canadian Internationals Tony Chursky and Zeljko Bilecki. Both were standout players in the NASL.

And finally, Mexican fans can reminisce with a feature on Antonio Carbajal. At the time he was the only player to play in 5 World Cups. He’s since been joined by fellow Mexican International Rafael Márquez, Germanys’ Lothar Matthäus and Italys’ Gianluigi Buffon.
