Norman Whiteside

Norman Whiteside has recalled the intimidating atmosphere in the Luis Casanova stadium and then the post-match party atmosphere in the team hotel the night Northern Ireland defeated hosts Spain in the 1982 World Cup finals.

Four decades on from that glorious evening in Valencia, the Manchester United legend is back in Spain on holiday and missing tonight’s reunion of the team that shook the planet. Whiteside’s part in the epic victory will never be forgotten.
