CF Classics Small Logo

Espana '82 holds a special place in the hearts of C.F. Classics. Whilst we can remember a lot of Argentina'78, Espana '82 is the first World Cup that we can vividly remember everything about. The first World Cup Panini album that everyone at school had really been into, with schooldays a frenzy of swapping and using your tuck-shop money to get more stickers. Rushing home from primary school to catch the afternoon kick off, then waiting for the evening match, all watched in a blaze of sunshine, both at home and in Spain.
