Too bad you probably won't understand the Dutch commentary of that 1961 championship. He is talking about "the lead growing by the minute" and "one shot may be missed, but the next one was a goal". And then you hear the final result... 9-1!

I wish we could find in the archives the USA vs GB game in the 1985 World Games. The game that made it a three way tie for third place. It was a high point in American korfball.

I have never seen any video of the 1985 GB v USA game but I do remember watching on Channel 4 the next day.
Those were the days when there was 'the team' and then there were substitutes who only came in for injury.
Following the loss to the USA in desperation the GB coach Alan Robson fielded his bench against Belgium. They played a great game losing by just 5 goals if I remember rightly and that result brought about changes to the line up for the final game against Germany.
Great Britain clearly could and should have won the bronze medal but those really poor opening games in which 'the team' even struggled against India and our inability to take penalties under pressure saw the USA snatch it
