Off the stanchions at Wembley - Mick Channon and Colin Bell

Everybody knows Czechoslovakia won Euro 76 with still the most audacious penalty kick of all time.

But who remembers Czechoslovakia's first game in qualifying for that tournament was a 3-0 defeat at Wembley, with two headers rebounding off the stanchions at Wembley?

Great headers, first by Mick Channon, then Colin Bell.


  1. Hi Tony,

    I've found a video of a penalty shoot-out at Wembley from 1993, which has quite a few of the pens hitting off the Wembley Stanchions. I will post it onto facebook later.

    Good Luck!
