It will rekindle fond memories for those who grew up with the greatest footballer who never lived – and will introduce a new generation of fans to a golden age when soccer stars actually set a good example to youngsters. Roy Race never swore, didn’t spit, and always played fair. He would never be seen in a brothel, didn’t steal anyone’s girlfriend, and displayed uncommon loyalty to his beloved Melchester Rovers in the face of a string of lucrative offers. When ‘Racey’ put on the England shirt, a nation stood proud.
Frankly, we don’t care, just so long as he has that awesome ’80s hair.
