World Cup '74 Portrait #78 (Adam Musial: Poland)

graphite & putty eraser, with watercolour pencil/30x21cm

The latest subject to be randomly-chosen features Adam Musial, who was included in both the FKS & Panini ’World Cup ‘74’ sticker albums (although only the former actually depicts him as such, for in the latter his name is applied to another image of Antoni Szymanowski, who already appears as himself, upon an adjacent sticker) & the Poland squad for the tournament, where he went on to play in six of the Poles’ matches, only missing the opening second phase group victory over Sweden, as they claimed 3rd place.
