My son’s friend Isaac took us to the Mexico City derby game between Club America and Cruz Azul at the Azteca Stadium, that’s the one where Maradonna scored his sensational goal against England in the 1970 World Cup and “the hand of God” also intervened on his behalf.
After the game I realised that my first Map in the Wild was there on Isaac’s Club t-shirt.
For football fans, the Estado Azteca is huge (87,000 capacity) and was pretty full for this top of the table match between two local rivals. The football wasn’t great (0-0) but the passion was massive (everyone was searched on entry and belts are banned!) and they served beers and pizza in the seats.
I thought that I would publish this football related map in the wild on the day that Arsenal play Tottenham (2 Dec 2018, Arsenal 4 – Tottenham 2)
