The London Lions – A Beginning

The London Lions – A Beginning

With the Champions League drawing to a close for the season, I was reminiscing about one of my favourite European stories. No, not Millwall’s run to the first round of the UEFA Cup in 2004/5, but arguably an even more impressive feat from the 60s – the Lisbon Lions....
