World Cup '74 Portrait #58 (Rafael González: Chile)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

Today’s random choice of subject proved to be Rafael González, who was represented in photo sticker form as a member of the Chile squad in both the FKSPanini 1974 World Cup collectors’ albums, & subsequently included in the final Chilean selection for the tournament, although he didn’t actually get on to the pitch during any of his country’s three First Round matches, after which Chile were eliminated.
