I collect videos of old soccer games. Deadspin wrote about my collection:
Soccer Historian Keeps Long-Abandoned Hope Alive

I am trying to find the following games. If anyone has one of these tapes
in a closet or an attic, please let me know...

August 14, 1977 Playoff Game 1: Ft. Lauderdale Strikers at NY Cosmos
This is known as the "77,000 game" at the Meadowlands. Strikers coach Ron
Newman has always claimed that the Pony Shoe company helped the Cosmos
win by giving NY a better cleat for a wet and slippery field.

November 23, 1980: Mexico 1 at USA 2 (World Cup Qualifier)
This was the first time in the modern era that the USA beat Mexico. The
match was on Spanish language TV in the USA. But in those days Spanish
channels were relegated to UHF, and who recorded UHF channels? Even the
US Soccer Federation doesn't have a tape of this historic match.

June 28, 1981: NY Cosmos 5 at Chicago Sting 6
The goal fest at Wrigley Field! The lead kept changing hands all afternoon
long. As far as I know, this game was only broadcast in NY. It was blacked
out in Chicago.

you don't happen to have the 1978 Minnesota Kicks 9 - 2 playoff win over the Cosmos or their 6/20/79 game do you?

That 9-2 playoff game is on my Want List too. That's a famous game. I wish I could find it.

Interesting. The amusing thing in the video was they were panning across the first team and they looked cold and undernourished. Then they panned across the second team and they looked like thye were laughing at them.

The second team is laughing, but it's hard to tell who they are laughing at. They may be laughing for the camera. Also do you notice that the players on the field are the only people not wearing hats. Every spectator wore a hat. That was the thing to do back then.

If you are recording in Brazil, then I assume the games are in Portuguese?
