Synopsis

An overview of the year that would be frozen in the memory of sports fans, due to the tragic plane crash in Munich that took the lives of some of Manchester United's finest players. The team made an amazing comeback and made it to the 1958 FA Cup Final. It was also the year the World Cup was played in Sweden and a Brazilian boy of 17 called Pele announced himself to the world; a footballer named Denis Law became Scotland's youngest ever international at the age of 18; Mr What won the Grand National in the days before the hazardous fences were modified; Lester Piggot rode Gladness to victory in the Gold Cup at Ascot; four British drivers won nine out of ten Grand Prix events; and England's rugby team won the Five Nations.
