"The quality of their forward play and ball control was of such finely drawn skill, of such accuracy, imagination and, indeed, impudence as to bring thundering down around them vast waves of delighted appreciation from Hampden’s mighty crowd." - The Times of London waxes lyrical the day after Real Madrid defeated Eintracht Frankfurt 7-3 at Hampden Park in Scotland, watched by 127,621 enraptured fans on 18 May 1960.
Pictured is Alfredo di Stefano scoring the first goal. He would add two more, and Ferenc Puskás four. Di Stefano scored in each of Real Madrid’s five European Cup finals and five successive victories between 1956 and 1960.
