World Cup '74 Portrait #76 (Joe Jordan: Scotland)

graphite & putty eraser/30x21cm

Today’s rogue in the portrait gallery is, regrettably, the ever-unforgivable (for his cheating hand, literally, in Wales’ elimination from the 1978 World Cup qualifiers)  ‘Volleyball’ Joe Jordan, who was selected for inclusion in both the FKS & Panini ‘World Cup ‘74’ sticker albums, the Scotland squad for the Finals &, subsequently, each of the Scots’ three matches in the tournament, when he scored two of their three goals that ultimately proved insufficient for further progress despite remaining undefeated.
