Review1 June 1968 Cup of Champions - NEC Toronto. Under strength Celtic side minus Craig, Gemmell, Johnstone and Auld have a prestige victory over Italian giants AC Milan.
Celtic's attacking football brought back memories of Lisbon in 1967. In 47 minutes Lennox scored after Belli failed to hold a Wallace shot. In 64 minutes Celtic scored a great goal when Hughes ran 60 yards before passing to Gallagher who calmly scored.
Lennox had scored early on but the Swiss referee had disallowed the goal for obstruction on the Milan keeper. In 20 minutes Lennox should have had a penalty when Schnellinger brought him down. They were refused another penalty later when Maldini clearly handled Wallace's shot.
